If you want to try the best beans at lunchtime, or the best T-bone steak in Bilbao go to this fantastic restaurant. Great food and wine for a reasonable price! Staff is also friendly and is near casco viejo! I will go back for sure!

Great local spot. The wine selection is awesome & inexpensive. The chuleton is better than any bother we have had. The grilled langostinos, foie & dessert were also top notch. Julen, the owner is a super guy, so was Aria his main server.

Cosy atmosphere, very good food, great wine (txakoli is a must in Bilbao), big portions, great service, plus a very friendly cook. All this makes a lunch at Arandia a Basque experience that I would reccommend.
