Of all places we ate that weekend, la Vina is the one I would recommend to everyone. The staff is absolutely lovely and there was not a pintxo (slice of bread with a tapa on top) or racion that I could say it was just fine. The Spanish Ham there is absolutely lovely. Highly recommend to try the risotto with... More

There are two names of this restaurant, so make sure you end up at the right one! We came here on our second night after a poor meal the previous night and enjoyed everything we ate. We had the taster menu for 30 Euros per person and it was amazing and great value for money. The Iberian Cured Ham was... More

Enjoy pintxos at the walk-up counter, or sit and dine slowly at an outdoor table. Indoors is fine, but more crowded at times. The food is fresh and outstanding.

This place has heritage which they've maintained well. We tried a couple of pork dishes, foie gras tapa and the home wine here. Everything was cooked to perfection and has been the best food in my Spain experience so far. The staff was courteous and helpful. Must must try.

We arrived here on a reasonable busy night without a reservation and a nice waiter made room for us. The service was a little slow, but only because the place was very full. The staff were courteous and friendly, the food was good, and the atmosphere felt like a popular family restaurant.

Tasty tapas. By far the best tapas we have tasted in Bilbao. Modern sorroundings and great service. Worth a visit!

We made a dinner reservation on a Friday in late June for El Bar, the casual dining area. Next door is El Teller, the private dining area, which only serves a tasting menu. We didn't want to do the tasting menu, so we chose El Bar. When you make a reservation for El Bar, you're seated in the back of... More

If it is your first visit to the Basque Country you definitely have to try the Basque tradition of eating pintxos. Great way to discover different flavours, from traditional to modern. La Vina del Ensanche is one of my favourite places to meet with friends and savour their different specialties.

The food is increíble! The "carrillera" es delicious. If you are searching for the "Spanish experience" this is the right place.

I have been in this place 3 years ago and I really wanted to show it to my family and I was delighted to see that it still keeps his quality of food and service at their best. It is really a must in Bilbao.

With a tradition of more than 85 years, La Viña del Ensanche offers two different spaces: The Bar, traditional premise with the classic ambient of tavern, including a covered terrace. It's Degustation Menu includes the best products from our main carte. Is the best option for an informal contact with the rhythm and pulse of the town. The Taller (Workshop), an intimate ambient with a more exclusive service, with a Gastronomic Menu accompanied with a cellar of more than 150 references, all prepared live in front of the customer. Finally, the Store, a delicatessen where you can purchase gastronomic specialities and selected wine.
