Friendly place. Great pinchos. Fun. Good drinks. Easy even for tapas newcomers. Loved it. Very generous sizes. See why it's busy.

Best pintxos in town and Best Tinto de Verano I've ever tasted. Don't miss it!! Well located, near the city main Plaza Castillo. The staff is adorable and really quick. Special attention on the medium cooked Foie Gras pintxos!

If you want to eat overheated and poor food, its your place without a doubt. Shame they miss the quality on these sites. It would improve a lot if they did at the moment certain "pinchos".
