Concierge.com's insider take:

The name means "above the trees" in Basque, and this glass-walled restaurant atop Bilbao's Fine Arts Museum really does feel like a sort of gustatory tree house. Chef Aitor Basabe's dishes are refined but still accessible: Pressed Ibérico pork loin comes in a rich, dark garlic sauce, while his seared bluefin tuna is topped with macadamia shavings and "faux wasabi," made with a purée of spicy guindilla peppers and fresh shelled peas. The inventive desserts include balsamic-vinegar ice cream (much more delicious than it sounds), and the first-rate wine list has an impressive selection of port.

Closed Mondays. No dinner on Sundays.
