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.

“Inexpensive and tasty”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

I may have given this more stars, but we only had a couple of tapas items and some coffee, so it was not really enough food to warrant the highest rating. What we did have was very tasty and it was very reasonably priced.

25 Euro for 3 courses of excellent quality, with homemade bread, wáter and a bottle of wine - with friendly service and some lovely petit four biscuits thrown in. Only open Thursday to Saturday or would have gone more than once...

“Post Guggenhiem Coffee with Great Views!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Had coffee and some pastries and sat out on the terrace behind the restaurant.
Was a great view of the river and city and a relaxing setting to take in all the culture you just saw in the museum.

“Great food, convenient location!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

After a long morning viewing art, we took a lunch break and was surprised to get such a fantastic meal at a museum restaurant. Highly recommended.

“bistro guggenheim - delicious museum break”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

we visited the guggenheim in bilbao for a day, and lunched in the bistro.
we booked online, which was simple to do, and our request for a table with a view was effected.
the bistro is modern and informal, has great views of the river, and the food is delicious.
we had the set menu, three courses and half a bottle of wine (per person) for approx €25.00
- which was v. good value.
the waitress who served us was friendly, smiley and helpful and she made us feel welcome.
we had our coffee's on the small terrace overlooking the river.
we would recommend the bistro as a great lunch break if you spend a day at the guggenheim museum.
