This centuries-old building houses a trove of delightful experiences. The architecture, artifacts, cuisine and staff provide a memorable meal and experience. We dined as guests with a business associate and thoroughly enjoyed the variety of plates ordered and shared.Having no idea what was on the menu or what we were served, I unfortunately have no recommendations. My only comment: there was nothing I wouldn't order or eat again.
I loved the facility and it's regional atmosphere. It is welcoming, homey, rustic, clean, well-preserved and well-staffed. We were never hurried and never waited for service.
A perfect evening.

Excellent food in a lovely environment. This old Basque farmhouse very close to Bilbao has a lot of character and it is a perfect place to enjoy a wonderful meal. The price is not specially high considering what and where you eat. I would recommend this place to celebrate something special.

We had the very best meal of our whole trip to northern Spain (and the most "expensive", but hard to get any better!) in the most charming beamed 16th century Basque country hacienda - Restaurante Aspaldiko in the little town of Loiu next to the Bilbao Airport. A dozen or more peacocks roamed the gorgeous grounds while we ate a 7 course gourmet meal with wine, sherry & cappuccinos for only 45€ per person - what a bargain! An unexpected best find, definitely worth going out of your way for. Highly recommend it - you will love it!

Excellent basque environment. We were not on a romantic occasion, but it would be an excellent choice for a great evening. "Degustation menu" not as good. Otherwise excellent food.

We had a conference dinner here. All the food was truly fantastic, and the old Basque farmhouse - complete with peacocks - is about as quaint a setting as one could hope for. Not far outside Bilbao but well worth the excursion!
