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

14 course taster menu with 7 wines. Very expensive but worth every penny. The wine choices perfectly matched the food.

8 courses, five selected wines, superb service. A one-star restaurant. The food, spectacular. Not just a meal, but an event. You read about such things, but for a treat you should try this. Not likely will you forget. Wonderful

Absolutely amazing tastes hit your mouth from the first spoonful. We sat at the bar (highly recommended) and watched the 7 chefs work brilliantly as a very well oiled machine - calm, precise and very particular about the presentation.

This seafood tasting menu was great. We also took the wine pairing and it was very correct. My only complain would be the final dish, which was meat. I felt it was unnecessary to have a meat course after such a great seafood experience. The interior design is very clean and modern and the views to the river are very... More
