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

We booked Porrue for dinner at the last minute, mostly based on its proximity to our hotel, and the tripadvisor reviews. We had the degustation menu and were completely blown away by the experience: perfectly cooked dishes, with flavoursome ingredients, great wine pairings (all local wines) and - what made it all just perfect - very passionate and friendly service:...

We visited here after reading reviews and it did not disappoint. The service was outstanding and every dish we ordered was superb. The layout means that it can seem like quite a small restaurant, but the wine and food choices are excellent and we were extremely impressed with everything.

A small restaurant in a street adjacent the Guggenheim. Food was really good, portion are big and the staff is really friendly. We loved our dining experience there. Do not hesitate to go!

Excellent choice of fish and meats, and the choice of local white and red wines was superb. The staff is multilingual, efficient and friendly and make great suggestions and are very helpful in choosing the right wines of the region to accompany your food. Recommend a reservation during high season. Truly a great culinary experience when in Bilbao.

I visited this restaurant for the second summer in a row and again I have been seriously impressed by how this restaurant continues to impress me! Despite being a vegetarian, the options available were plentiful and the mushroom dish I had was breathtakingly good! Then I had the incredible pudding for a second year in a row, which was the...

Due to the fact that our flight leaves early in the morning we were looking for a late lunch / early dinner. After walking around at 4.30pm we discovered most places were closing and would reopen at 7.30pm. We asked at our hotel reception and they recommend this restaurant and checked that it was open and would take us at... More
