For our first night in Bilbao we couldn't have chosen somewhere better to eat. We were served by a wonderful waitress who patiently explained any unfamiliar dishes to us and recommended a good wine (no rip-off prices). We were served with an on-the-house tapa of...More

Delicious food, good service, in a casual, yet classy setting. The smaller plates are very nice - truffled egg, marinated anchovies, smoked salmon, milhojas de bacalao. The fish of the day was fresh and well prepared. The extensive wine list has very affordable options.

This is a restaurant you must visit if you go to Bilbao. It is my opinion. Service, quality and prices are ok. The Pintxos are very good. Cooked on time.

We went to Bilbao to stay a few days with friends. And one of those days our friends took us to this restaurant. We were very surprised by the delicious food they served and the kindness they exhibit.

People can find here an small restaurant. High quality and average price. Definitely a good choice among great restaurants in Bilbao.

This restaurant is crazy expensive. We got shocked. The food quality was ok if you don't like potatoes or vegetables but only little value for your money.

a wonderful place 5mins walk from bus station. I was the only non-Spaniard in there on a Monday lunchtime. Super friendly service and exquisite tapas at the bar.

Unpretentious restaurant, which serves tapas at the bar and average quality food at the table. We were not very impressed with their bacalao pil pil. Prices seemed to be above those of comparable places.

One of the best pintxos experiences!ビルバオと近隣の町の間の移動をバスでお考えの方、少し時間を作ってサンマメスの駅から徒歩すぐのこのお店によってみて下さい。ピンチョスはメニューを見てオーダーですが、英語訳はあったと思います。ちなみに壁に貼ってあるメニューは新価格、メニューブックは旧価格です。5品頂きましたが、どれも外れがなく美味しかったです。I'd recommend this place to people who concerns to take a trip from the big bus terminal in Bilbao. It's just a couple of minutes walk from San Mames tube station. All the pintxos I tried there were in top-notch.

We ordered two sirloin steaks where one was rare (ordered medium). The third person ordered a cod which was really salty and uneatable. The main problem for us was the lack of sides, no salad, vegetables whatsoever! but the wine was good...
