We had hoped to enjoy the food of this highly rated Bilbao restaurant but instead met with very surly waiters who made the start of our evening quite uncomfortable when they reprimanded us for not confirming our reservation. This might have been acceptable if the...More

We had dinner at this restaurant primarily because everything else we tried was full. As it turned out, it was one of the best meals of the trip. We were ushered into the back room which, while empty, was elegantly set with white tablecloths. We...More

Guria restaurant in Bilbao is a short walk across Doña Casilda Park from the iconic Euskalduna Palace and worth every step. Guria has widely known as a temple of traditional Basque gastronomy for nearly sixty years – ten at this location – and the kitchen is still under the watchful eye of chef Genaro Pildain and his partner Carlos. Guria is divided into two parts. The luxurious, formal dining room is decorated in the English style in tones of taupe with leather seating, thick carpets and drapes that can be pulled to create private enclaves. The buzzing, brasserie-like bistrot, with its more affordable prices, features a long wood and brass bar, chequered tile floors, and an informal air. Wherever you sit, do not miss one of the two famous cod dishes, either simmered very slowly ‘al pil-pil’ or a la Vizcaina, as Pildain is known as the King of Cod. Wines are service are exemplary
