I can support all of the great things other reviewers have been saying about this restaurant. I was lucky enough to have a long working lunch in a large private group with people from the city, so the restaurant cooked just for us. Every one of the 5-6 courses we had was delicious, with excellent local wines to accompany the food too. The owner explained every dish to us as he was presenting it, and in another lovely touch - having heard it was one of our group's birthday, managed to rustle up a birthday cake, with sparklers, and extra bottles of cava. It was great value-for-money, and I will definitely return when I revisit the city for another work trip later this year!

Loved this family run restaurant,,, we asked for the menu and the chef came out and said “I’m the menu” ... there are two choices meat or fish ... and you both have to have same choice ... but it’s whatever is fresh that day.... we had the fish - which was fresh tuna in balsamic... calamari.... n monkfish
Delicious !!!! It’s around 35euros per person plus drink on top ... loved every mouthful !!!

Smashing place, the staff were very helpful and informative. You’re not given much by way of options, but this is the style of the place. Good old fashioned hospitality and super food.

Very good restaurant. Basque food. There is no fixed menu. Each day, dishes are cooked according to the products purchased in the market. The food is special and very tasty. Great service and attitude. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We went to Restaurante Lar in Bilbao for dinner on Saturday and were utterly charmed and delighted by the whole experience. We were greeting like old friends by the owner who proceeded to tell us what he was going to feed us--we had no choice but didn't mind! Many recipes were made by his "mama", including the incredible ratatouille that was sheer heaven on a plate. We had delicious local shrimp, cooked very quickly then placed on ice to preserve the flavour. We had monkfish that must have been poached and which was wonderful. We had a T-bone steak that was tender and melting. I can't remember how many courses there were but each complimented the next. The service was friendly and efficient. There were only about 6 tables in the place, so you need to book well in advance, but it is so worth it. Don't go to Bilbao without trying this wonderful restaurant.
