I did it again: that is I should have sent back the main course I ordered as did the Argentinean lady did sitting next to me. In my case the main course was cold and in her case the steak was over cooked. My view is that that the restaurant is too popular, a real tourist trap. The waiter and... More

Hard to beat the dining experience on a warm Spring evening in Plaza Nueva. It was the place to be on a Friday evening. Chuleton served on a sizzling hot stone plate made it very delicious and juicy. It was much better than what other reviews said. Service was good but not a lot of English was spoken yet we... More

My attention was immediately captured by Victor Montes, in atmospheric Plaza Nueva, old town of Bilbao (Casco Viejo). Looked stylish, in a quietly elegant manner; old world charm with character, with its black, white and gold decor - wine bottles, whiskies of every description lined its shelves as we walked inside. We were inundated with choices of mouth-watering pintxos, all... More

Stopped by for lunch. Weather was beautiful so sat outside. There was a cava promotion and we received a complimentary glass of it each as an apertif (tasted like Bulmers cider though!). Had asparagus to start and a mushroom and artichoke salad and a tuna salad. Each was served with delicious sundried tomatoes and really fresh and well dressed light... More

On the side of this beautiful square in the old town, Victor Montes offers an incredibly atmospheric ambience. Of course you can eat outdoors al fresco, but you would miss the fine décor and the bottle display of the indoor bar and restaurant. We had good food and a very friendly service, in spite of a very busy evening. Go... More

The restaurant is on a very popular square which is always bustling with locals as well as tourists. The quality of the food was very good, it was a delicious meal with very friendly service. Of course I speak the language, but even if you try to speak only a few words of the local language in any place, your... More
