Had an awesome lunch at this restaurant. The food was interesting and the service was great. Our waitress didn't know much English but she was extremely helpfull. It is a bit expensive but worth it. I recommend anyone to try it out.

Everything we ordered, from the octopus appetizer to desserts, was delicious, and service was excellent. The location, just a short walk down the riverside path from the Guggenheim, is also a plus.

I had read reviews that the service at Larruzz was not great but went along with an open mind, and on a Saturday night we were not disappointed. A friendly welcome from English speaking servers was a pleasant surprise. In fact, the service was effortlessly efficient throughout.

Paella is made fresh and takes about 20 minutes. We were offered starters but preferred to get stuck into the wine. The paella between two people was served in a traditional pan at the table. The serving was ample but not overly massive. It was very well made with all the elements cooked well.

Lots of choice on the menu - fish, rice dishes, meat. Also, there was an extensive dessert menu. Beware - the sharing dessert platter (ice cream, fruit, tiramisu, profiteroles, death by chocolate cake) is amazing but huge!

The restaurant benefits from a waterside location and has a lot of unusually positioned windows which add to the interest of the place. All in all a very good place for couples and groups alike.

Had lunch here on our last day in Bilbao and we enjoyed it very much. The highlight of the meal was a starter called Mojete de Bacalao a la Antigua con Bonito y Tostas which turned out to be cold tomato's with tuna and toast and was surprisingly good. We thought the staff were nice considering we didn't speak any Spanish they coped with us very well. Most people in the restaurant had rice dishes which seemed to be the speciality here.

The restaurant has a terrace, but we ate inside, which was spacious, with good distances between the tables. The place is known for its paella and it did not disappoint. There must have been a dozen or more varieties on the menu. We selected the duck, mushroom and artichoke version; and it was delicious. There is a 20-minute or so wait after ordering, as the paella is made on order, but we happily filled that time with an excellent salad. Service was very good, efficient and unrushed.
