Bistró Guggenheim Bilbao values a free style of cuisine, linked to its roots, to the memory of those dishes that are part of a culture and which need to be adapted to an avant-garde context, without losing neither flavors nor textures. Recipes and sauces are the foundation of our work, though refined, evolved and adapted for the general public that seeks savory, healthy cuisine, and an informal gastronomic experience.

Good but pricy

Have very nice tapas and coffee but the prices are in the high end. The room was nice and airy even rather drafty when the door was opened. Lovely big photo on the wall.

Fixed price menu which included bread, petit fours, coffee & wine. The bistro is light & airy & the service well organised, efficient & friendly. Both starter choices were delicious- White turnip ravioli with chicken stew & crab salad. The two main meal choices were hake or lamb. The hake was perfectly cooked. The lamb was rich in flavour but... More

Went to Bistro because we were visiting the museum. Had three course meal including wine for E29 which was superb. It was adventuresome, not large and expertly cooked. I cannot recommend it too strongly as I believe it deserves a Michelin star.

We loved coming here in the morning. Uncrowded, delicious choices for a good start to the day. We stayed indoors to eat at the upstairs alcove that overlooked the Guggenheim grounds and river. Fun to watch the runners and dog walkers begin the day.

I had trouble finding the bistro as there were not many signs inside the museum and I had to ask how to get to it. I had a couple of tapas and a glass of beer. There was not much variety among the tapas, but they were good. It is a pleasant place to have a snack and a sit-down.

I went to this bistro on the second floor of Guggenheim.Whereas the 26 euro menu looked exciting and the space was amazing,I was disappointed by my turnip ravioli and lamb.Service was great though and maybe i was just unlucky..

No table service. Expensive. But is located in the museum. If you have to rest is the ideal place. A cofee is enouph.

Just stopped off here from a break from work for a Coffee. It has lovely views and is great to watch the world go by. However, the only thing that was a downside is that you can't get away from the smokers here. The service was good enough. The toilets are very bad and confusing, just don't use them!
