Bilbao and the Basque Country Restaurants



La Taberna de los Mundos

La Taberna de los Mundos Review

Sandwich-maker Ander Calvo is famous throughout Spain, and his masterpiece is a sandwich on ciabatta of melted goat cheese with garlic, wild mushrooms, organic tomatoes, and sweet red piquillo peppers on a bed of acorn-fed wild Iberian ham. Calvo's two restaurants in Bilbao and one in Vitoria include creative interpretations of the sandwich along with photography, art exhibits, travel lectures, and a global interest reflected in his obsession with early maps and navigational techniques. Both Bilbao restaurants are open by reservation only on weekday evenings. The tapas bar is open longer hours than the dining room.
