We came across this restaurant during a walk on the hill above Bilbao. We weren't very hungry so we ordered one plate to share (steak and chips) which was good simple food at a cheap price €9 and a good quantity to share. Others near us had the cook yourself BBQ steak which did smell delicious! Quality red wine was cheap. Dessert Valenciano was amazingly simple but delicious! Fully recommend this!

Think of a korean bbq, just bigger... with a more powerful, bigger grill right at the table, where you can grill your thicker cuts of delicious meat to your liking..

Well worth the price, great views to the valley from above.

This was recommended to us by a local... and a great recommendation it was!

The Food is delicious - but the problem started with a wrong credit card debit entry - The nightmare is no since 3 months ongoing.

This is one of those... I'll say this is the best meet there is... the taste is just heaven and so tender. You get your own bbq so you get it very red and you decide yourself how much longer to cook it. The sides... wow! Chorizo, morcilla, even the salad was super simple but damn good. And then the location... open spaces in the middle of the mountains (it's like 25 min away from Bilbao). Kids can safely run all over... I could keep writing about this place for hours...
No one speaks english there, but there is not much to talk... just ask for Txuleta and go with it!!!

We took a taxiride up to the hills to have a sunday dinner in Txakoli Simon. It was a wonderful experience.
The tables were scattered outside in the park around the restaurant. The main course was chuleton which you could order by kilos from half to five. We ordered one, went to table and after a few minutes got the chuleton and a small coal grill on the table.
We grilled the meat piece by piece ourselves and it was excellent. It melted in your mouth.
I warmly recommend a trip up the hills especially on a hot summerday.
