We went as a group of 8, all eating a la carte and, with the wine flowing, we paid 25€ each for main course and desert, so not terribly expensive. Obviously a very popular place, not touristy but well worth a visit just for the...More

It was one of my favorite places from Bilbao. Beautiful interior and lights, a building dating from the beginning of 1900. Tasty coffee and interesting tapas. Must visit while in Bilbao.

Stopped in on our Friday night pintxos crawl. Crazy busy with locals and tourists! The 1903 inside atmosphere is amazing. Interior inspired by Islamic palaces of Andalusia. Has vibrant tiles, ornate ceilings, stained glass and beautiful old fixtures. Go for the grilled skewered lamb that’s...More
