We sought out this place after reading the TA reviews. So glad we did, it felt authentic and we were surrounded by locals eating lunch in the small area at the back of the bar. The menu was challenging for us as our Spanish isn't...More

For us a fixpoint in every Bilbao stay. We just drop in and tate the great jambon and the toritllas. Also some pintxos. All in ground floor (we were not yet in the restaurant, just in the bar). Also nice wines per glass.

The food and wine were very good. Local produce and superb fish. The service was good despite the language barrier ion both sides. Traditional decor and very good value.

Mon-Fri Menu del dia musts. Full of locals enjoying wholesome fresh traditional food & wine. Prompt service with a smile and authentic surroundings upstairs & down. Closed Mon's in Jan. Excellent value but you may have to book a day ahead.

Great friendly service, with waiters who seemed genuinely pleased to see you there. In the company of curing pork legs hung up on the wall, the set menu offers excellent value for money. The squid ink was sublime. Would definitely recommend.
