I was looking for somewhere to lunch in the old dock area of Bilbao before catching the ferry home. I'd walked around the Getxo area and really liked it, I'd also noticed some possible restaurants to eat in. So I did some research and thought...More

Entering the restaurant at 21:30 we were the only guests. Fortunately four more appeared before we left at 23:00. We had anchovies as a starter, and especially after we saw our check we were happy the waitress suggested one would do for the both of...More

What a treat this restaurant was. My friend and I had a most delicious lunch at this gem in early October, 2013. The atmosphere of the restaurant is elegant, but not stuffy. Both of the servers we had were polite and helpful. But most importantly,...More

Although a bit expensive, it was worth it. The food is great. We shared fried anchovies for starters and a tarbot as main course. Both were very nice prepared. It was more than enough do no deserts for us. Including a small bottle of wine...More
