We booked for 2 on Valentine's Night and anticipated a unique dining experience at world class level. Greeting by staff was fine but after that many things let it down. We each had a glass of their recommended champagne (La Baillette) as aperitif but it was quite "acidic" and not particularly nice. The roast octopus with purple potatoes and mango... More

Nice staff, informative and friendly, delicious food, portion sizes too big but still too expensive. Bread served with olive oil at the begining is nice but not much related to the menu and stops appetite. Had hake throat as starter and grilled turbot for main. Starter was well cooked with great flavours however too large of a portion for a... More

We have eaten out at many fine dining restaurants, including michelin starred restaurants and this place matches up with the best of them. Excellent tasting menu with fantastic flavours, local twists, great presentation and fabulous service. Amazing.

Very fresh cuisine with remarkable taste sparks in the dishes. Good advice on the wines and well trained staff. My kind of restaurant, just across the bridge at the Museum Guggenheim.

Absolutely amazing food. We went for the 8 course tasting menu with wine pairings & it was perfection. 3-4 high quality ingredients per dish which allowed you to savour each of the flavours.

We booked a reservation using trip advisor (the fork) at 7:00 PM and asked for a 9:30 seating. We got an email saying it was unconfirmed yet an hour later we got the thumbs up. This was especially fortunate because many restaurants are closed on Mondays. The service was exceptional, the food amazing and the atmosphere breathable (class M planet)... More

A short stroll from the Guggenheim we chanced their would be an opening and were seated graciously. Our waiter steered us away from the tasting menu in favor of dishes using their grill. Once we chose the 1/4 suckling lamb ...... delicious. .... he suggested we only have one starter to share and recommended the splendid mushrooms ... exquisite as... More

When the cooking and quality is at this level, it's easy to worry that the restaurant might be a little stuffy but not a bit of it here. The staff were great, the atmosphere is really relaxed and some of the food was sensational. We had the autumn menu, which they were happy to adjust where necessary to take account... More

This was to be our last night visiting Bilbao so I thought that it would be nice to find a special place to dine. We chose to dine early because of our schedule the next day which proved to be a godsend. We had almost the entire room to ourselves and began with a selection of bread and a choice... More

We have just eaten the tasting menu at Porrue and it was fantastic! We ate at 7pm as tomorrow we fly home early and we were the only ones there to start with. However, the staff made us very welcome and we did not feel uncomfortable. Several people came in later who had not booked and were turned away so... More
