The food we had was ok except the beef (steak) that was hardly chewable. We started with goose liver paté, and young cheese with honey and nuts. The paté (€28) was ok, but we had better from French cans. The young cheese (€15) tasted very good, nice and creamy, although we would call it yogurt rather than cheese. Local Portobello... More

We were looking forward to returning to Etxebarri after an extremely memorable and mind-blowingly good lunch there in 2013. It's over an hour's drive from San Sebastian, and nearer to Bilbao in fact, and we arranged transport there and back. The restaurant filled up pretty quickly from 1pm and most of the other diners also opted for their €125 per... More

This place was awesome! The atmosphere is more casual than other 3 star Michelin restaurants but the food is on par. The chef here is known for his European bbq skills. Everything we were served served some time on a grill, whether it was the milk was boiled so it got a smoky flavor infused in before making the final... More

A couple of our friends had been before a few years ago before the Michelin star was awarded. 10 of us came back for a tasting menu to celbrate our friend's 50th birthday. The restaurant is located in a tiny village about 40 minutes from Bilbao - we got a minibus to take us there and back - and we... More

Each dish is extremely simple which is refreshing. I'd say this is a restaurant to try if you're getting a bit bored with the perfect foams and gels and 20 ingredient dishes served at other michelin places. If you're just starting to try michelin places you might think this is too simple. Deserves to be top 5 in the world... More

From the moment I booked this restaurant for my 50th Birthday I got the feeling that they were very calm and relaxed, over six months I asked several questions and always got the same answers, that is fine do not worry. We arrived early after meeting friends at Bilbao Airport then having to get a taxi to the restaurant as... More

Came with high expectations given top 50 rating. Food was good without being brilliant. Chose a range of dishes rather than set menu. Liked the buffalo cheese and beef but was underwhelmed by oysters and clams. Tuna belly was very rare and asked for it to be cooked more twice. Setting is pretty and service was friendly. But seriously, how... More
