Etxanobe Review

This luminous top corner of the Euskalduna palace overlooks the Nervión River, the hills of Artxanda, and Bilbao. Fernando Canales creates sleek, homegrown, contemporary cuisine using traditional ingredients. Standouts are the five codfish recipes, the duckling with Pedro Ximenez sherry, poached eggs with lamb kidneys and foie gras, and the braised scallops with shallot vinaigrette.

    Good, not excellent

    We were disappointed after such a rave review. Very welcoming terrace, great service and good food. However, by international standards the cuisine overall is just slightly above average. For the price the experience should have been much better. Expensive by any measure.

    Excellent

    If you take the set price meal for lunch, this represents excellent value given this chef has a Michelin star. On a warm day, there is a terrace overlooking the river.
