Order the prefix option so you can taste a little (a lot!) of everything. The staff is very busy but they are friendly and courteous. The food is very good you will enjoy it a lot. I saw the locals (they look like locals) getting some type of meat (chunks) with potatoes and it looked delicious but I forgot to... More

This was a truly wonderful experience. We only barely managed to book a table, popping in the day before to ask. The restaurant is also a small shop with a small selection of food and wine. The bar with the same name is next door. We enjoyed the seven course tasting menu at fifty euros. Each dish was a nice... More

Booked a table in person as tried in vain on line. Restaurant is extremely popular and has great atmosphere. The waiters didn't speak any English but we went for the tasting menu and we were not disappointed. We were amazed by the abundance of food that just seemed to keep coming. The stand out dishes were the iberico ham and... More

Visited with party of 16. Had tasting menu of something like 8 courses. Excellent food @30 euros. Ham,cod, pork cheek all very tasty and beautifully presented. Fantastic service for such a large party. Would definitely return with family. Also has very good delicatessen and shop.

N43°15,726' W2°55,954' This pintxo bar experienced the Lonely Planet effect after the outstanding must-visit verdict: it could well be the best place to eat pintxos in Bilbao. Foreign visitors flocked to non-English speaking La Vina del Ensanche. The solution was twofold: an iPad with the menu in six languages and extra tables outside. We wanted to sit inside so queued...

My parents and I went on a 3 day trip to Bilbao and ate here 3 times - twice for dinner and once for lunch. Very reasonably priced and excellent quality food. Much less carb-y than some of the other places we tried which made a nice change. Staff very friendly - brought us the dessert menu in English (even... More

Probably one of the best places in Bilbao to eat ham along with a good Crianza red wine. It is possible just to have sone wines (poteo), wine and pintxos (pintxo pote) or to sit down and have a light supper. The seats are a bit uncomfortable and reservation for a supper is more than recommendable. It is not in... More

We went for a drink among friends and one of our stop was La viña.well it was full of people having a drink, when we managed to reach the bar it was full of Pinchos from one end to another. One more appetising than the other, we could not resist and decided to try some. Well I can tell you... More

We ate here on a Saturday night and the food was just sublime. This really is a great restaurant with a small but excellent menu that covers all tastes. The place was full of local people (always a good sign), but having said that the menu which is on a tablet caters for English visitors with good descriptions and photographs... More

We tasted some ibéricos such us "jamón, lomo,..." Delicious!! Besides, the combination of olives, green pepper and anchovies -called GILDA - was perfect. The bechamel balls with jabugo ham,... As a dessert, an apple tiramisu!! And We drank the best wines from La Rioja (Viña Alberdi, Viña Arana,...) The only problem:it was full by 21h.

With a tradition of more than 85 years, La Viña del Ensanche offers two different spaces: The Bar, traditional premise with the classic ambient of tavern, including a covered terrace. It's Degustation Menu includes the best products from our main carte. Is the best option for an informal contact with the rhythm and pulse of the town. The Taller (Workshop), an intimate ambient with a more exclusive service, with a Gastronomic Menu accompanied with a cellar of more than 150 references, all prepared live in front of the customer. Finally, the Store, a delicatessen where you can purchase gastronomic specialities and selected wine.
