Volveremos en nuestra próxima visita al país Vasco. Excellent restaurant close to the Gugenheim museum. The restaurant is open all afternoon, they... More

We enjoyed the 10 course tasting menu with accompanied wines in excellent settings at Porrue. The staff is friendly and very professional. We especially liked the "show cooking" with dry ice and the dessert using liquid Nitrogen. Great experience and great evening!

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the feeling was of absolute perfection. Service was faultless and personal without being to intruding. The food was out of this world. if I could rate to 150% i would do so. Definitely recommend if ever in this part of Spain.

We had a really wonderful meal here while staying in Bilbao for the weekend. The food and wine are both excellent value and the menu imaginative and varied.
