Arriving at 8.45 pm to an entirely empty dining room, (we had booked assuming it would be buzzing) we sat down hoping we were just early for Spain. No one else arrived. Extremely depressing. The waiters were cheerful and friendly but it didn't really help....More

We had dinner last night at Zortziko but to be honest we don't understand how they could get one Michelin star. Let's start with the food: - they served the first two entrées as one dish so the twelve-course menu is in reality a eleven-course...More

The interior is very "classic", it could use an update. Staff very friendly, professional and not too stiff. We took the degustation menu, the viaje largo. That's 11 courses (some very small of course). At first the courses came very quickly one after an other,...More

Food was really really good and quite surprising ! Next time we'll be in Bilbao, we'll come back again and again :) It wasn't too expensive *taken into account it's one start Michellin) compared to other restaurant we tried during our stay in Bilbao !

Zortziko is an elegant restaurant, if I am not mistaken with a Michelin star. I was only there once, didn't really like it that much because obviously the famous chef was not present. That is not the issue though. Squid... More

Description
Zortziko restaurant, just a few steps from Bilbao's iconic Guggenheim Museum, is iconic in its own way. This ultra-modern kitchen is sited in an elegant, 19th century mansion and is the place for business lunches and relaxed dinners. The formality of the setting the three dining rooms are decorated in royal French, Victorian English and a more modern style is deflated by the helpfulness and cordiality of the DJed waitstaff. Chef/owner Daniel Garcia has earned his Michelin star through refinement of flavours in a truly Basque style at once inventive and conservative. Dishes change with the season, of course, and may include dishes like starter of txangurro salad, containing crabmeat on thin spaghetti with coral dressing, main course of blue duck slow-cooked served with a sweet rioja sauce, and a tasting plate of desserts to satisfy even the most adventurous gourmet. A single table in the wine cellar, the home of more than 600 labels, is reserved weeks in advance. Celebrity-magnet Zortziko (Frank Gehry, Pierce Brosnan) is one of Bilbao's culinary star attractions.
