I visited this restaurant thanks to my husband's advice and so I had expected much, but what I experienced was much more than I had expected. How spectacular the menu was, how friendly all the MinaWarriors were! Alejandro, the sommelier, made that wonderful food perfectly complete. We could still have the taste of those delicious Basque wines. The next time... More

An unassuming door off the promenade takes you into a warm, modern, stylish interior. We sat at the 'barra' which gave us a fabulous close up experience with the chefs. I thought it might be a bit disruptive to the meal but it wasn't and the sous chefs were quite happy to talk from time to time but otherwise carried... More

A celebration of local ingredients in plates that are as wonderful to look at as they are to savor. We enjoyed the 10 plate menu with a bottle of white wine. The sommelier also selected a delicious red wine - we had a few glasses with the meat dishes. We sat at the bar and marveled at the ability of... More

Very good, not my favorite, but this is very personal anyway....very good produce, some dishes excellent, some a bit odd combinations. We had the Tasting menu, desert did not deliver, but was replaced without any hesitation immediately. Glad we tried Mina, it was nice.

We had dinner here on a Friday night, and opted for the 10 course menu. Food is amazing, very tasty, different and simple at the same time! We sat at the chefs table (bar), so we had a good view on the workings of the kitchen. Great to see that it works like a very well oiled machine - smooth... More

Mina restaurant is right by the river in an area that has been regenerated though, I was informed by locals that apparently, a little bit away from the river it is not recommended at night. I think though that this might simply be the bad reputation of the past mixing with current reality. Anyhow, Mina restaurant is small, with maybe... More

The start of the service team was a bit doubting. It took a long time before the aperatif was served and I had to mention twice our menu choice because two different waiters were asking for it. But the experience of the food was outstanding! We have been taken on an amazing trip through the Basque Country. The wines were... More

We booked this as a treat and sat at the bar to get a good view of the chefs and how the food is put together. We arrived and got a good seat, restaurant itself was lovely, simply but beautifully decorated. We went for the 10 plate tasting menu with accompanying wine and honestly the flavours were outstanding, but I... More

Based on the comments of other reviewers, we went straight for the 14 course tasting menu (there are also 7 & 10 course options). It's almost all nuggets of seafood so not such a struggle to get through the menu. And if you get the chance, ask to sit at the bar so you get a view into the kitchen... More
