We celebrated a friend of mine birthday at the restaurant. The menu costs EUR 26,50 included wine and water, a great price! I had a lobster which have to add EUR 8 on top of the menu price. Dessert is superb!

Same chef that run the Michelin one... More

the menu is interesting. The presentation is good. The service depending on the one who attends to your table. The taste is good. Portions oké. So why disappointing? It's too expensive...... One can eat as good a lunch in mAny of the taberna's in the city. In a more relaxed atmosphere at half the price or less. As far as... More

There were no tables at the bistro but upstairs on the main plaza is the museum's cafe which is outstanding. Save time and money and get a better view here. Nice selection of pintxos are €3 each but get 3 for €9 and they throw in a drink, roll and dessert. Don't miss this cafe...or the museum!

I have eaten in a few museum restaurants that were so so. I have never eaten in a Michelin museum restaurant until I arrived in Bilbao. Many people have dinner and raved about the food, service and drinks. I only had a light lunch that was superb.

The bistro has a pleasant outlook, good food at reasonable prices. If you are visiting the museum, you might as well have a bite to eat at this bistro.

This is really worth booking for lunch. We were lucky to get a table as we had not booked. I would recommend you go for the formula which is good value and comes with a glass of wine. This is a popular restaurant and rightly so the food is a high standard.

Given that this is a museum café - not always the best place to get decent food - the quality of the dishes and the service was quite good. The café has a nice terrace in front of the museum. We enjoyed some pretty good tapas and a glass of wine - perfect for the occasion.
