Fodor's Expert Review Casa Rufo
Charming and cozy, this centenarian Bilbao institution is essentially a series of nooks and crannies tucked into a fine food, wine, olive oil, cheese, and ham emporium. Leave it to the affable owners to recommend a house specialty such as the oversize txuleton de buey, which pairs wonderfully with the house Rioja crianza (two years in oak, one in bottle) and any number of other bottles from the 1,000-strong wine list.
