The 7 Best Restaurants in Bilbao


Bermeo has the honor of being regarded as the finest hotel restaurant in Spain; no mean feat considering the country’s plentiful supply of award-winning gastronomic offerings.
Just a short walk from the Guggenheim, Bermeo is located in the Hotel Ercilla, a modern high-rise in the center of Bilbao. Thanks to its delightful authentic Basque cuisine, Bermeo is now the hottest place in town. Try its signature dish of European lobster sautéed with melon slices and bacon in sweet wine cream. The interior décor is a charming blend of wood panel walls, repro antiques and bright white linen; and service from the smartly turned out staff is excellent. Elite travelers can expect to dine alongside a mix of local celebrities and the cream of the city’s social scene.
