From OpenTable: 

Bruce Auden's award-winning BIGA ON THE BANKS is located in a spectacular setting in downtown San Antonio's modern International Center. Overlooking a romantic tree-canopied bend in the river, the historic and the new find common ground in Biga's dynamic re-emergence with ultra contemporary cuisine propelling San Antonio's recent ascent to a new level of River Walk dining. Gourmet Magazine named Biga one of the five best restaurants in Texas. Fine dining has never meant "fussy" to Chef Auden. Biga's ambiance is casual and relaxed - San Antonio style. Auden's celebrated culinary background, coupled with creative and energetic design, has marked Biga on the Banks as one of Texas' truly outstanding restaurants.

Lovely location, overlooking the river (as the name implies). The decor is eclectic, almost north african, with lots of curtains giving the impression of tents and weirdly shaped gourds used in combinations to create fantastic sculptures.

The food is excellent quality and ultra fresh. The salad starter I had was very fresh, with a sweet and zesty dressing, perfectly offset with crispy noodles so that it all exploded in the mouth in a cataclysm of textures.

The seafood in my Bouillabaise was so fresh, it could have still been swimming that morning, and the flavour was subtle yet exquisite.

the service was attentive without being too intrusive, and the price was reasonable given the quality of the food served. A fabulous restaurant, and well worth a visit.

Wonderful!

Great place during the holiday seasons! The options for dinner were great and although a bit pricey, was worth every penny! Service was superb!
