What a treat! We looked up this place only because it was close to our hotel, but we ended up regretting not being able to come back a second time. The service was superb, with the waiter making sure every dish my girlfriend chose would be gluten free -- even going back to the kitchen once to be absolutely sure.... More

We decided after eating here in the summer of 2015 to stop in Bilbao this year, just to east here again! It was a great decision...a fantastic restaurant with an awesome range of gins. The food is superb, the service excellent and wine list very well crafted. Nothing to find fault with at all...please go and enjoy.

Having decided to give the inside of the art museum a miss we sought out a place to lunch. Porrue has black and chrome decor, cool and slick. We chose not to have a starter but were brought fab selection of bread and olive oil and shortly afterwards, a bowl of creamy cheese and asparagus soup. Delicious and not charged... More

After personal recommendations and reading the reviews, we were expecting an outstanding meal. Unfortunately, it wasn't. There was no welcome - no greeter because it's a small restaurant and no greeting when someone arrived to check our reservation. Our first real disappointment was when the "tasting menu" and the majority of the fish dishes were only available if they were... More

Really enjoyed our dinner at Porrue. The menu is very creative and leans towards both local cuisine and seafood. While not inexpensive, the portions are generous and quality of cooking and preparation Michelin mention worthy. All servers were great and ambience made for a relaxing and pleasant evening. Porrue is located a very short walk off the river promenade and... More

We chose the tasting menu, which is mixture of entrees, mains and desert. There were some clever cooking techniques, unusual ingredients/combinations and overall the meal was very good and delightfully different.

The place is fantastic and we decided to choose the Taster Menu and add wines to this. It was worth the experience of having 9 Courses and trying 9 different wines from the region. The waiter was lovely and explained each course and the wines. I would recommend this restaurant highly.

Porrue has a large menu with lots of unique spanish foods. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and the food is delicious! The location is easy to find, and it is a very modern style restaurant. You can't go wrong with any of the desserts!

We felt at home the moment we got in. The fish was superb and fresh.We enjoyed our meal without any rush. You must try the cuajada (kind of fresh cheese) dipped into liquid nitrogen. The taste is spectacular. There are many excellent wines. The restaurant is nearby many hotels and the Guggenheim museum. A must.

Thank raufran
