A lovely place to eat just off the main street. Very helpful service and the meat (particularly the sausages) were great!

We had lunch here on the terrace. The one waiter serving the full terrace was in control of his job. We had local ham, anchovis of the house, and canned tuna with pepper. All nice lunch dishes for very acceptable prices.

Don't make our mistake, we were here confused thinking we were in the also named 'Olla' restaurant in Bilbao. Food is quite average compared to what you can find on Bilbao.

2 glasses of local Txakoli wine and four pintxos, all tasty for E11,50. Not bad, although a little tricky getting served.

We went on our tapeo crawl at night and enjoyed their well preseneted assortment of pinxtos. This is more of a traditional place in Bilbao but definitely worth a visit.
