    I was searching for a nice gourmet restaurant in Bilbao and Aizian fully met my expectations. The food was delicious, especially white prawns tartar, and serving was aesthetic. Definitely worth a visit.

    We could feel that all the staff were trying. We were staying at the Melia where the restaurant is. The same location and furniture were used for breakfast as well. The venue lacks a 'dining-room' ambience. We hope they can improve on that.

    Restaurant was a little too brightly lit and too big for the number of persons present. The food and service were excellent and well worth the money.

    Aizian is a strong contender for the best food I have tasted. I found them via the Michelin guide site and they live up to that billing. We tried the 'executive' tasting menu at lunch, which offered great value all things considered - the desert (French toast w/ rice pudding ice cream) was particularly enjoyable. Service was thorough and dishes were explained helpfully. The restaurant was a little quiet but the weather may have kept people home that day - I would definitely return if near Bilbao again.

    This excellent food deserves a better surrounding. The restaurant and the staff is outdated. It is necessary if it will keep up to the status to improve rhe qualty of the staff. The price/quality is good but there is no atmosphere that they care about the food served or the wine to match the dishes
