Fodor's Expert Review Café Iruña

$$ Bilbao Café Fodor's Choice

This essential Bilbao haunt (est. 1903) on El Ensanche's most popular garden and square is a favorite for its interior design, boisterous ambience, and tried-and-true classics like Basque steak frites or bacalao al pil pil. The neo-Mudejar dining room overlooking the square is the place to be—if they try to stuff you in the back dining room, resist or come back another time.
