Loved the mini tapas which you could order or take from the waiter as they did the rounds with a few choices from the kitchen. So cheap and lots of choice, even when it was quiet. Only negative was the very uncomfortable high chairs. Would have stayed longer but it's pretty uncomfy!

Loved this place, high quality pintxos and tapas. Fantastic idea with the waiters bringing these delicious little bites round the tables. We visited on Sunday night and really enjoyed the experience

A little different setup than most places nearby. The waiters bring the pintxos around to all the tables and you just pull one of the plate you like. Great for just hanging out for a long while and talking with friends as you are waiting for something you like instead of just ordering what you want off a menu. But... More

The food was nice, you pick from the plates they bring to the table and are charged based on the number of sticks you have picked up. The only criticism with this method is that you don't know what's coming out next and that limits the selection you eat.

We really enjoy this tapa restaurant. The tapas are among the very best we have tasted in Marbella. We have made a point of visiting some of the highest voted places in the old town - and without saying anything bad about them - found their quality not matching Pintxo and their neighbors close to the city center by the...

We had some good tapas, the Croquetas are very tasty and a good white wine. Good Service. Will come back. The location is very handy since they are only 50m away from the beach.

Having eaten in a few tapas bars, in my opinion, this is good, (not the best, but good) as you probably know by now (reading other reviews) the waiters come round with plates selection of tapas, just take off whatever ones you fancy, and they add up your toothpicks etc. They do have a selection of cold tapas on display...

After reading so many positive review of this place I was rather disappointed with the food that was on offer, we came here yesterday evening hoping to taste the good tapas all the other people's rave reviews suggested but honestly either I live on another parallel universe or the chef was having an off day. There was hot and cold... More

They bring plates around to your table and you can choose to partake or not. At the end they add up toothpicks, skewers, and plates to total your bill. Everything we had was fresh and tasty.
