This restaurant is a gem. Tastefully decorated in a discreet, classic style, it is on the first floor of the building which has a great tapas bar downstairs and a small hotel on the other floors. The menestra (mixed market vegetables) came without the usual accompanying meats that make this dish a savoury classic stew in northern Spanish cuisine. However,... More

A group of us had dinner here recently. The food and service in the upstairs restaurant was very good. I would certainly return.

Otano was recommended by our hotel and it did not disappoint! The meal was exquisite, the wine was wonderful and the ambiance is just lovely. The service was excellent. Great place to eat in Pamplona.

Pamplona old town is full of bars and restaurants. We selected this restaurant because off not placed in the street view but in the first floor. There is good offer of regional food but Im recommending grilled octopus. The taste was different from other but delicious. Then good choice of wines from Rioja. So try and enjoy this place. Robert

Start from their jamon - the best in the area - and continue with any item/s from the menu. Nothing will disappoint you. And don't forget to ask for the Rose wine that they are serving those days. Sorry, I don't remember the name! Nothing to improve here - but still they succeeded - now you have the menu in... More

We went to this restaurant on the evening of our 1 night stay in Pamplona. There are 6 of us with the 4 kids ranging from 8 to 18 and none of us have more than a few words of Spanish. The pulpo and blood sausage sharing dishes were superb. Spider crab lasagne, baby squid and lamb chops excellent. However,... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by someone in San Sebastián. We were seated in the back corner but this did not seem to affect the service although the waiters were very busy serving at both the bar & the tables. Food was both modern & traditional ... all tasted good. All of us were happy ... nothing left on... More

Otano was lively and vibrant the night we were there (mid-May) as was the whole street. And the food was first-class and good value -- and needless to say, the wine was good and great value (its price made us realise how expensively we have to pay for wine at home!). We were a big group of adults (12) but... More
