“Try as I may, I could not find anything to recommend this place :-(”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Having read all the good reports about this place, we so looked forward to our visit. Unforunately we went on a day that they had only 2 waiters. So as you can image the service was terrible. It took about 30 minutes for someone to give us a menu, we should have read the situation and left, but it was a nice sunny day, and we had looked forward to a nice leisurely lunch at this place in particular.

They do have menu's in English, but the 2 waiters did not speak English at all, so to order was interesting, as we pointed to what we wanted on the English menu and the waiter used the Spanish one alongside it to translate. We arrived failry early - 14:00 for a Spanish lunch and 2 of the fish dishes we wanted were not available !!.

Eventually when we did get something,(Turbot & Cod) the quality and quantity was not good - 4/10

So in summary, it is possible that when this resataurant has a full complement of waiters and is fully stocked with fish, it is as good as the other reviewers have said, but alas it wasn't on the day we went.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

Turned up without a booking and not far from closing - welcoming and great choice of fish. Excellent favours....all washed down with a very reasonably priced bottle of Rioja Rosada

“Best Fish In Bilbao”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

By far this place had the best fish we ate in Bilbao. My son and I shared a lovely oven roasted sea bass that was unbelievably done. I should not have shared, as he ended p eating more than his part! My wife's steak was perfectly cooked, butterflied to her taste. Excellent service. It's a bit of a walk down a residential street, but very well worth the walk, and the area is lovely for a pre or post lunch walk.

“Deserves the top spot”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

This place deserves to be best in getxo so let's hope this review gets it there.

Can't comment too much on atmosphere as we were one of only two couples on a Wednesday night.... Why? I have no idea as the food is just sublime. Amazing fish throughout, monkey fish and sea bass were our choices and both outstanding.

Word of warning, doesn't open until 2100 and tasting menu only on the weekend.

“Sunday afternoon”
Reviewed February 17, 2010

Wow, what a surprice, it had been raining like hell all weekend and on sunday we wanted to visit the see, we went for a stroll along the old harbor and found this secluded square, full with people. And suddenly the sun broke through the clouds. The food was excellent, and the wine even more. Really really really visit.
