“Best place to go in Bilbao for a Chuleton”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

Good price/quality relation. Great chuleton (steak) and good service. Reservation is needed, especially on the weekend. It is nt a luxury restaurant, but the products are excellent. Do not go if you do not like meat.

“Meat, meat, meat and valencianos”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Please do try the meat, it is gorgeous, it simply melts in your mouth and then end it with a valenciano: a typical mix of vanilla ice, orange juice and grand marnier.

“Great place to eat steak”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

This restaurant is specialized in steaks: thick, juicy, delicious beef steaks with fried potatoes and salad. My recommendation (but this is only a recommendation) would be to ask for a few appetizer to share (green peppers, anchovies, fungus...) and then ask for the ammount of "chuletón" (beef steak) that the waiter/waitress recommends. And a good red wine.

One problem with this restaurant is that it is located outside Bilbao, on the top of Mount Artxanda and far from any public transport system. You will have to go there by car or by taxi.

“great quality food”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

Fantastic steak, served on charcoal grill at your table. Nice indoor dining experience (in formal restaurant upstairs) with excellent service. We went for an early lunch so were not bothered by the smoke other reviewers have reported. The starter of black pudding was without doubt the best black pudding we tasted (beautiful light texture), the chorizo tasty and well crafted, mixed tuna salad very fresh and tasty. Unexpected highlight of the trip.
