Was referred to it by our hosts the proprietor of Belles Artes Pension, Leidre. It was late and Bide Bide was open. Again, the food was good but the service was... read more

Bide Bide is a nice place with pretty good food. The service is bad, but in my experience it was really bad every where I ate in Spain, so as long as the food is good I'm happy. We had the Ham Croquettes, Spicy Potatoes, Mushroom Risotto, and Veal Cheeks braised in red wine over mashed potatoes. The veal cheeks... More

The food here is fantastic - great value for money. Atmosphere was great and good to have an english menu. Service not excellent but the food made up for it.

Service was good, an english menu was provided without the need to ask, although we were doing fine with the spanish version. The food is delicious, plenty of garlic. The place is loud with too much lighting to set a mood but we left happy.

Neatly tucked away amongst the last row of shops in the old quarter town (next to a kid's playground and the only cinema in town), Bide-bide is a great place to chill out.
