This is a great little oyster bar. It serves oysters and no other food - not even bread! But the oysters are second to none - astonishingly fresh and utterly delicious. The wines are excellent and well priced, but the oysters certainly aren't cheap. Really a top notch destination if you love oysters. The seating is wooden and limited, so not a place to lounge around in.

Does what it says on the tin .... oysters and wine, plenty of good quality to choose from, also at decent prices. No better way to start the day exploring Bilbao.

An incredible place with excellent fine de Claire, Vernet Special, Gillardeau and Kerpenhir ... on our visit.
A glass of local white Txacoli is the perfect match ;-)
Hope to come back ...

Great place and fantastic oysters but the guy in the bar couldn't be more uninterested in serving us, although he did his job efficiently. 5 for oysters, 2 for service.

Lovely little place for a few fresh oysters and some delicious white wine! Very limited seating but then we loved just standing around in the bustling atmosphere of a Friday night in Bilbao. Great spot!
