Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow! Outstanding food and service. I have eaten in many fine places but the food here is just superb. All aspects of taste ore considered but the style is casual and welcoming. Do try!

Nicely located just outside the old town. Nice interior. Fast and friendly service. Food was excellent - we loved everything we shared. Would love to return.

We were recommended to eat here, and it did not disappointed us. We had learned by then to ask the waiter what would he choose during our time in the Basque country. He gave us a list, and we followed his advices except for one...dish. Everything was extremely great except for the dish he did not recommend, that was average. This restaurant is not cheap at all, so be ready to spend a bit of money here. But it is definitely worth it. Rice was excellent, tuna was fresh and tasty, etc. We shared a few dishes and I could have eaten all of them again. One of the best meals I have had in the area. They offer free wifi, but I wasn't able to connect it. I never asked, so I would say to ask the correct password instead of keep trying the one written at the entrance.More

We enjoyed a Bilbao buttered bun and beers to picotear on a Sunday night. There were no tables available to eat dinner so if that’s your thing, make sure to call ahead! Many people were coming in to order drinks to bring outside to drink...along the river.More

Overlooking the Casco Viejo and the Ribeira market, this cosy restaurant mixes up traditional atmosphere with creative recipes. Their cold vietnamese-style spring rolls (not fried) are worthy tasting as well as their fresh, delicious taboulé with watermelon. Various vegetarian options and very kind staff. I...went twice during my visit in Bilbao :-)More

Our dog was happy with us, and w had...a great walk back to he "ensanche" from the "casco viejo" after our lunch. Overall.... Go!!More

You wouldn’t expect this quality of cuisine by the looks of this restaurant. The interior of the restaurant looks industrial, with a burger-bar feel to it. The menu is, however, great with delicate flavors. We thought we had to choose from 3 starters, but it...turned out that you get all 3 and share them with your table mate(s). After several nights of Pinxtos and Tapas we were looking for some more healthy dishes including vegetables, we succeeded! We payed €66 for two persons (3-courses, wine and coffee). I will definitely return to this restaurant during my next trip to Bilbao.More

This place looked nice, and the menu sounded interesting. Unfortunately the food didn't live up to expectations. The cod felafel were very dry, and the meat dishes were very average. Ratte potatoes, in case you're wondering, was two boiled kipflers. It turned out to be...quite an expensive night by Bilbao standards. The ambience isn't helped by fluorescent lighting that gives a roadside cafe effect. On the plus side the wine is cheap and drinkable.More

The restaurant atmosphere is quite pleasant but the food is the worst I have ever had in Spain. The cod felafels are tasteless, as is the pork cheek Iberico - over cooked and extremely bland.
