The Amboto Restaurant is located in the emblematic old downtown of Bilbao, surrounded by many bars and restored places.
In my last visit to Bilbao I had agreed to meet friends for dinner; we were having something to drink in the area and we decided to go inside this restaurant since it was the only one with a free table.
The place has two floors; the first floor has the bar and the second one the restaurant. The dining room is quite big and fits 110 people. I was surprised that it was practically empty, especially when the other restaurants of the area were so full.
It is decorated with wood and paintings, one of them featuring the Dama de Amboto of the popular legend. It specializes in traditional Basque cuisine, like codfish and other fish and grilled meat. They have a special house menu (26€) and they make special group menus.
