    The mushrooms (hongos) with foie was amazing! Surprised by maple syrup on the first bite but it works.

    Fantastic- one of the best steaks we have had. I made a comment about being pregnant in relation to not drimking and without being asked they made sure my meat was well done and we felt really looked after Would definitely recommend it as a go to place.

    Eat last night at Casa Rufo after the Champions Cup Final A fitting end to what has been a great weekend. Bilbao is lovely, the people so welcoming and helpful. And it was no different at Casa Rufo, considering my Spanish is rudemental at best and the hostesses English nearly as good we had an amazing meal, smoked duck and cod to start. And sollomio and t-bone steak for mains. Unbelievable food fantastic atmosphere great night thank you Casa Rufo I’ll be back ????

    Overpriced for what you get... I saw this place had great reviews but I was slightly disappointed. It's a nice, family fun restaurant and the atmosphere is unique, also as if eating in their living room.

    We loved the place, the food and the setting, and can really recommend the place. The starter was cured Duck breast (one dish is enough to share for two), and then we had the traditional basque chuteleta. We tried to different dessert; the house flarne was OK, but the cheese 'pudding' was excellent! Only two things on the down side: the Gin& tonic costed 10€ for a glass, and the waiters were very quiet with absolutely no smalltalk.
