Description: Overlooking a quiet bend of the San Antonio Riverwalk, but within walking distance of all Downtown hotels and the Convention Center, Biga on the Banks highlights the daily changing menu of Chef Bruce Auden, the most frequently James Beard nominated Chef in San Antonio. Menu features seafood, steaks, lamb and wildgame with a preference for local and sustainable product, but do leave room for the Sticky Toffee Pudding.With high Zagat ratings Biga is an ideal venue for a romantic dinner for 2 or has impressive private dining rooms to entertain clients.

Go during the week to avoid the crowds. That way you can fully enjoy every moment at Biga. Delightfully efficient service in a beautiful setting. Consistently the best food in the city.

“Some Very good dinning”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

We went there to celebrate a birthday, the food was excellent and the service was even better. The Creme boule is outstanding. The waiter went above and beyond for us. When I told him that it was my girlfriends birthday he brought us champagne and her dessert had a candle on the dish, Happy birthday was written on the plate in chocolate. Very nice touch. Yes, it was a little pricey but you get what you pay for. The chef spent time working in Chicago and it showed. If you want to feel special I highly Recommend this place.

Thank you for the review.
Just a reminder every night before 6.30pm or after 9.30pm we do offer a seasonal 3 course menu for $37 it is a great way to enjoy the Biga experience but without going over budget. We hope you will join us again to give it a try
