Really good, interesting food. I recommend it highly as a place to go for Sunday lunch. It seems alot of restaurants are closed on Sunday in Bilbao so it was a wonderful suprise to have found such an imaginative place to have lunch.

We had the tasting menu and it was outstanding. They even changed one of the dishes for us which we thought we would not like. Loved everything. Creative presentations with wonderful favors. We did not really like the cold atmosphere but the food made up for it. Really appreciate the fact that they opened at 6:00 pm so we could... More

Without a doubt one of the most memorable meal experiences I have had in my lifetime. We booked in for a lunch following a visit to the (really nearby) Guggenheim museum. It's a small place, but really cosy and welcoming in a modern style. Our waiter saw us to our table immediately and was one of the most attentive i... More

Everything was perfect. Friendly staff who are helpful and well informed about the food and wine. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We were immediately made welcome and staff were attentive without being intrusive. We were given a free anchovy starter, shared a fabulous crab salad and a really tasty tuna dish and then shared 2 outstanding puddings. The... More

A chef in San Sebastian recommended this restaurant to us. It just happened to be around the corner from our hotel, and opened early so we went. We had a totally magnificent experience. We were tended to from entry to departure, we were never ignored, but also were not intruded upon. The highlight was the fact that they cook over... More

We booked for 2 on Valentine's Night and anticipated a unique dining experience at world class level. Greeting by staff was fine but after that many things let it down. We each had a glass of their recommended champagne (La Baillette) as aperitif but it was quite "acidic" and not particularly nice. The roast octopus with purple potatoes and mango... More

Nice staff, informative and friendly, delicious food, portion sizes too big but still too expensive. Bread served with olive oil at the begining is nice but not much related to the menu and stops appetite. Had hake throat as starter and grilled turbot for main. Starter was well cooked with great flavours however too large of a portion for a... More

We have eaten out at many fine dining restaurants, including michelin starred restaurants and this place matches up with the best of them. Excellent tasting menu with fantastic flavours, local twists, great presentation and fabulous service. Amazing.

Very fresh cuisine with remarkable taste sparks in the dishes. Good advice on the wines and well trained staff. My kind of restaurant, just across the bridge at the Museum Guggenheim.
