Mina has a nice location by the river. We decided to dine at Mina following all the good reviews. It has a modern and sleek interior design. Each plate is an experience on its own. A thick gravy-like brown sauce is a general problem almost...More

Arrived in Bilbo with cuisine in mind. Was very disappointed as the first 2 starters were not to standard. The fish was not fresh!!!!! Maybe things were not up to scratch as the main chef team was not there....I'll give it another chance when I'm...More

It is a small but nice restaurant in a refurbished building by the river. There are a few tables and they also offer 8 seats at the bar, facing the kitchen. Total 25 seats as I recall I was told. We were late so we...More

Visited Mina this summer with a cousin, and we spend a good couple of hours in gastronomic heaven. Everything, from the amuse-bouche to the final surprise dessert, was a treat—if not for our taste buds, for the sake of having the most complex and interesting...More

We enjoyed the 10 course tasting menu. Each course was superb, delivering brilliant flavours and consistently excellent dishes. The mussel dish, aubergine, prawn and red tea dish, and sobert dessert with seawater ice were some of the many highlights. We will definitely return; it is...More

Some folks collect Michelin-Star restaurants to add to their black books. Some just visit to experience new ideas and enjoy the food. We definitely fall into the latter group. But whichever you fall into, make a stop at Mina in Bilbao. The decor is elegant...More

This restaurant was awarded by Michelin, and in our opinion they still need to work a little more to get there. Compare to other Michelin Star places you will notice the difference. Service and food were very good, but still not at the Michelin level....More

Excellent lunch taster menu and attentive but considerate service. One of the nicest wines I have had - a white rioja from Abel Mendoza and half the cost of what we would pay in the UK. Our vegetarian daughter was catered for admirably and we...More

No meat or fish would leave very little on the menu. this is mainly a tasting menu place, so going vegetarian may mean you only end up with half the menu or less. Worth asking if they do other options but i do not recall... More

Creo que lo mejor es que lo consultes con el propio restaurante, pero en los menús hay muchos platos y puedes pedir que te cambien alguno de ellos en función de gustos o intolerancias.
