"soul and character of Samaruc"


Ismael Bilbao, soul and character of Samaruc and a true passionate about cooking with touches of ingenuity. Originally from Seville and raised in the neighborhood of Triana, he let his imagination and curiosity fly to Denia in 2013. Not without first passing through great kitchens such as Can Fabes, in Sant Celoni, and working side by side with chef Santi Santamaría.

Together with his sister Lourdes Bilbao, he undertook a new, more personal project in the heart of the Costa Blanca that would allow him to express his personality through culinary creations.

The result? A gastronomic proposal in which the environment and local produce play a fundamental role in very personal cooking and master classes in flavors and textures.

Although over time the brothers followed different paths, Ismael’s love for cooking has transcended to his children, who today are part of the Samaruc team.
