We went on a Saturday, and the place was bursting to the seams. The fast food area was full of people too, enjoying coffee, beer, and everything else available. A must see for tourists.

Nice location at the old part of town. Here you will find a crowded marketplace where you can buy fish and meat to bring home if you rent an apartment or just sit down take beer and eat a variety of pinchos.

Definitely worth the visit! Good tapas and affordable prices. Don’t get there too late (ater noon) since it gets rather difficult to get a table and you will have to experience the place standing (ok for young couples, not if you are with elderly people).

Nic place with rich variety of tapas. Unhopefully a bit dirty because of customers taking little care Go there if you like immersion in the crowd and tasty original tapas

I believe the market closes on Sunday. Restaurants are plenty but you may want to eat pintxos and you will find many around different plazas and try Paza Neuovo.

Hi, The market is open Mon-Fri: 08:00-14:00 & 17:00-19:00 Sat: 8:00-14:30 But check once in Bilbao as those might be summer opening times. You want good restaurants? I could not recommend any. I just went to pintxos bars... More
