Location and contact

We are passionate about creating an authentic tapas bar experience. We created Pintxo to share our love of Spanish culture, sherry, wines and the very best Spanish produce. We don't take reservations, so just rock up and we will do our best to seat you. We have a lovely, sunny Sherry garden. Parties of 10 or more can be catered downstairs in Cadiz. Mixed tapas at £15 per head.

I have served in the Royal navy and spent many years working in the Mediterranean, I have had Tapas in many places and Pinxto’s is as good as any. Even on a January evening I was transported back to sun drenched veranda’s overlooking the beach....More

Went here for dinner on a Monday evening, after a recommendation. Quite a dark Restaurant. Not that much selection for a tapas restaurant- have had better elsewhere. Wine measurements small and expensive with limited choice. Friendly and attentive staff. Just expected a bit more, may...More

We visited midweek for my partner's birthday. It's a lovely space, felt cosy on a chilly evening. The tapas was delicious and the staff were lovely. Would definitely go back anytime we're in Bath.

4 of us enjoyed an evening meal of taps and drinks in relaxed surroundings. Good food, drinks a bit pricey.

Quite simply the best tapas I have had in the UK, in fact some of the best food full stop. Informal, relaxed restaurant with great service and fabulous wines. The wrapped dates, Padron peppers, lentils, patatas bravas the manchego and the creme Catalan were particular...More

This has got to be one of THE best tapas bars I have visited since moving back from Spain! Having lived in Spain, I am a bit of a 'tapas snob,' and always look for true authenticity in both ambiance and flavors. Pintxo ticked both...More

Sat in the garden, had a wonderful meal for two. 4th visit and still fabulous. Highly recommend the calamari rings and the patatas bravas. Lovely atmosphere and a great menu.

I'm guessing this was back in the summer as you really wouldn't want to be sat in the garden now, hehe. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your visit and that it was obviously memorable.

We are locals and walking back in the rain after visiting friends we thought we would stop off for a drink and a nibble. The atmosphere seemed lively, the music was good though conversation was easy. Out first problem was with the menu. If you...More

Oh dear, it is frustrating when this happens. Instead of bringing up an issue at the time, so we can make amends at getting it right, the customer dashes home to leave a nasty review on Tripadvisor. I'm guessing the dish you had was cooked...More

The staff were lovely and the atmosphere was good. However the food was dissapointing. Usually patas bravas are full of flavour and spice. The patatas bravas here were very bland. The artichoke dish was also lacking in flavour. The sourdough bread was stale and the...More
