Fodor's Review

Euskera for "in the wind," the Michelin-star hotel restaurant for the Meliá Bilbao, under the direction of chef José Miguel Olazabalaga, has become one of the city's most respected dining establishments. Typical bilbaino culinary classicism doesn't keep Olazabalaga from creating surprising reductions and contemporary interpretations of traditional dishes such as rape con espuma de patata y trufa e infusión de champiñones (monkfish with potato and truffle cream and wild-mushroom infusion) and falda de buey (Wagyu) en láminas, con ajos en texturas y zanahoria in escabeche (Wagyu beef with "textured" garlic and carrots in a vinegar-citrus marinade). The clean-lined contemporary dining room and the streamlined, polished cuisine are a perfect match.
