Description: Bistró Guggenheim Bilbao values a free style of cuisine, linked to its roots, to the memory of those dishes that are part of a culture and which need to be adapted to an avant-garde context, without losing neither flavors nor textures. Recipes and sauces are the foundation of our work, though refined, evolved and adapted for the general public that seeks savory, healthy cuisine, and an informal gastronomic experience.

In general, I would not recommend dining in museum restaurants except for the convenience. The food tends to be generic and the price high, sometimes extremely high. Bistro Guggenheim is an exception. The prices were very reasonable. And, of the four three course set-price meals that we three were excellent and would warrant a five star rating. Unfortunately, the fourth person did not enjoy her meal, and that is the reason for the four star rating. Although the place was very crowded, and the service perforce a bit rushed, it was very good considering the crush of people.

The food was fresh, the setting comfortable and the prices were good. Unfortunately we were there on a rainy day, the outside terrace would be hard to pass up.

For starter - Bulgur stew with veg, pine nuts and corrander shoots.
For main - Roasted fish of the day, cauliflower couscous and parsleys juice.
For dessert - Light choco sponge cake, coffee mousse and iced honey cream.
With house wine, mineral water and homemade bread.

All these for less than 20 euros.

Creative cooking, ensured quality, perfect portion, casual and sun lit room space. What else do you need? Spain knows it best!

Forget the rest! Go along to the Guggenheim Bistro and try the Taster menu. The price includes a glass of wine. Good views from the inside - depending on your table. Outside tables available on the terrace. Go early or book. The Bistro opens at 20.30.

Loved our lunch. For $18 Euro each, we enjoyed a lamb main dish, a bottle of water, a beer, a bottle of nice red wine, and two great desserts. Great service in a nice atmosphere. We were very happy.
