Description: We are hoping to bring a little bit of our home town of Bilbao here to Leeds. Our in house sommelier has hand picked a selection of quality wines, beers and cocktails to accompany a carefully crafted menu that is prepared with the finest local and imported ingredients highlighting the best of contemporary Basque and Spanish cuisine. Salud!

“Authentic Pintxos & Spanish Tapas”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Bilbao Bar newly located in the Canal Wharf area, by Leeds city station is a great place to try authentic Spanish cuisine. Delightfully minimilistic and friendly, Bilbao offers Michelin standard food at affordable prices. We had Garlic Prawns, Patatas Bravas & Ham and Cheese Croquettes for starters followed by meat and fish dishes that are to die for; Try the Veal on mash, pulled rib meat with asparagus sprigs or tender Steak cut into cubes. Salmon and Hake were delightfully presented with a delicious sauce and dessert was a mouth watering variation of Creme Brûlée, wafer thin Cheese Cake slices, a sumptuous Chocolate Fudge Cake with ice cream or a cocktail glass with cold Rice Pudding under a cream sauce and sprinkling of chocolate. A professional and dedicated team make you feel very welcome and no doubt Bilbaos popularity will rocket once the word gets around. I recommend booking a table for the busier times on weekend evenings.
