“Bar withTapas to spend good time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

La Nicoletta is close to the main shopping street/area of Bilbao and not fare away from the Guggenheim.
The interior is fine and you find a mixed of different people inside. From students to business people. The prices are high but still acceptable. Some of the food is standard and nothing special but some Tapas are very nice. Recommendation is Thun with Caviar and one which comes smoking to your table (you will see, it is a nice effect).
In summary, it is nice to eat there, but it is not the best place in Bilbao.

“Delicious Italian food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

We ended up in this restaurant by chance because our hotel was nearby. During the week they offer a menu with 2 plates, a drink, bread and either coffee or a dessert for a reasonable price (about 12 EUR). We liked it so we came back 2 more times, even on Sunday when it is more expensive to eat "a la carte". The atmosphere is kind of nice and in comparison to other restaurants in Bilbao or Spain it was more quiet which I liked. Also convincing was the service in general: fast and friendly. Nothing more you can ask for.

“Overpriced and overcooked”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

In this restaurant I ate tge worst meal of my trip to Spain, a pasta dish of Fuite de Mar, tge shellfish had been baked in tge oven before being added to a generic tomato sauce. Not only were they baked but the shellfish had been in the oven so long that they were dried out and stuck to their shells. This was one of the recommended dishes and came in at 20 euros.
This restaurant would probably be fine for a salad and a pizza but I would avoid it for anything else

An overall nice experience. The restaurant is quite spacious but the atmosphere remains cozy.

Recommendable!
