I came here with my girlfriend last week. A welcoming, homely atmosphere. The owners were very kind and patient (my Spanish is so-so) and made us feel instantly welcome. The food was superb, particularly the fish that we had as a main, I'd go as...far as to say that it's the tastiest fish I've ever had. Very nice fruit tart for dessert too. If you find yourself in Bilbao, you must go.More

We enjoyed our meals/lunches at Bikanti. IT felt like eating in the livingroom of a lovely couple. It felt good, the dishes were good but not spectaculair. If you are at Guggenheim and want to have an Astrurian lunch go there, but I think there...are more places in Bilbao to have a same lunch for the same, or better privéMore

Nice traditional place serving OK food. Not sure why, but with only one menu, we were the only people in the restaurant not offered a desert, but that may have been down to my poor Spanish, and total lack of Basque.

We had booked a table and were welcomed by the owners warmly. The lunch menu had 2 courses with a lot of choice. I had the Sea Bass which was absolutely brilliant. We had a bottle of wine, Coffees and a dessert. 45 euros for...two of us. Marvelous value and a very jolly experience.More

We had to make a reservation in advance but it was definitely worth. The food was great - lomo con patatas, merluza and higado de ternera. Everything the best quality and delicious. The staff is very friendly!

2 minutes from our hotel we stopped here for breakfast. We had fun trying to order some food with the lovely waitress. We managed to order coffee, cake and a roll with a Spanish tortilla. The food was amazing and in a typical authentic Spanish...restaurant. We have found our place for morning coffee and breakfast. Hoping to return for lunch or dinner here as it is a cracking we find.More

We visited as it had such great reviews and we were not disappointed. The welcome was great and although fully booked, we were squeezed in for an early lunch. All the food was home made and as it was a Monday the menu was meat...based as no fresh fish. The starters were delicious, the meat dishes perfectly cooked and the desserts really good and freshly made for the day. This was some of the tastiest food we have eaten in Spain on our trip. Thank you!More
