This restaurant is located in the 'Palacio de Euskalduna' very near the Guggenheim Museum part of what is now known as 'new Bilbao'.
The restaurant, luxuriously decorated with fabrics designed by the painter Joaquín Gallardo, enjoys excellent views over the redeveloped area which was once home to Bilbao's shipbuilding industry but now full of modern buildings, museums, galleries, bars and cafes. With one Michelin star this restaurant is very popular.
Fernando Canales, influenced by chefs such as Pedro Subijana and Ducassees, is a well known chef and personality often appearing on local radio and television shows. However this popularity hasn't gone to his head and he still produces top quality cuisine and is not afraid to be innovative in his creations. This summer for example there are 4 set menus to choose from. There is a section dedicated to cod dishes with 4 different choices and also a section dedicated to chocolate from Etxanobe.
Mª Ángeles Elizondo is in charge of the service which is very efficient.
