We had the tasting menu with wine match. I am always a bit sceptical about wine matches but we just wanted a quiet night chatting without to many decisions. A virtual trust the chef and sommelier. Can't fault the food. Delicious, varied and beautifully presented....More

Went for lunch with my family. Took the set menu and was thoroughly impressed. Impeccable service, superb food. Even we're allowed a tour of the kitchen. Amazing. This memory will last a lifetime. Menu changes 3x a year. Tempting

We had a nice meal but it could have been so much better. We chose the 9 course menu. The first 5 courses were all served very quickly one after the other as if they wanted our table (they did not). I complained and it...More

The tour of the kitchen, meetng the chef and the amuse bouche were the highlight of what we had anticipated would be a superlative gastronomic experience, but sady the following 18 courses did not match up to what we were hoping for. The overall cost...More

Our dinner at Nerua on a Saturday evening started with a tour of the kitchen, during which the first amuses were served. The excellent menu was centred around highly local ingredients. The kitchen was superb in taking dietary requirements into consideration. As to be expected...More

The Nerua Restaurant is set aside of the river that passes through Bilbao, with incredible views and within the Guggenheim Museum which is a master piece, worth a trip for sure. Bilbao and San Sebastian are a foodie's heaven but sometimes it takes a little...More

We visited this restaurant as our finale to a long holiday. We saw great reviews from Trip Advisor but were nervous of hype, given its fantastic location on the riverside, immediately next to the Guggenheim. We greatly underestimated the pleasure ahead of us as a...More

We did the tasting lunch. It was fine but nothing to get excited about. I would choose a different Michelin experience in Bilbao.

We planned our visit to Bilbao quite some time ago - and dinner at Nerua was always going to be on the programme. It all looks so chic and neat and inviting on the website. And indeed it is. But I am afraid the food...More

Tasting menu and wines were so tasty and lovingly presented and prepared. You are greeted for a tour of kitchen and tasty bits to start your journey. Clearly people love working here and it shows, the variety of tastes and use of vegetables without being...More

No specific dress code - I emailed to ask them. They do prefer smart casual over ripped jeans and the like. I wore a smart shirt with a thin jacket and trousers rather than jeans. The ladies will always want to dress up... More

Nerua takes its name from the Nervión River, the backbone of Bilbao, which in ancient Latin was called Nerva. We combine innovation with our roots, our surroundings. It is a space designed for a gastronomic and cultural experience.

Nature sets the pace of our kitchen, we adapt to each season without censorship to do the cuisine that we feel. A local cuisine that begins at the vegetable gardens, in the sea, and in the farms.

Our experience is the best technique-we cook with freedom to create pleasure and enjoyment. Faithful to our principles, we defend our environment and the producers who make our goal possible: to be at the cutting edge and to innovate without losing the flavor of our roots.

"Muina"-Basque for core, heart, or essence-is the soul of our kitchen.
