The restaurant is on a very popular square which is always bustling with locals as well as tourists. The quality of the food was very good, it was a delicious meal with very friendly service. Of course I speak the language, but even if you try to speak only a few words of the local language in any place, your... More

The front of this spacious established restaurant is unique and has character. They serve a large range of excellent pinztos. They allocated tables both indoor as well as outdoors, for diners who prefer to relax over a proper meal. We enjoyed the Baby eel, foie with Pork cheeks, mushrooms with jamon, and many more items which we kept adding on... More

We had a T-bone steakfor two. Very well served and very tasty. Service was oké, but not enthousiastic. Prices on a la carte card very expensive compared to other restaurants.

It took a while for the waiter to warm up (was he fed up with tourists?) but after a while he got all friendly and funny. The pintxos meanwhile were great and the wine and beer was as well.

We went here a few times for snacks and beer. Really enjoyed the experience. Staff helpful and served quickly. Spider crab on rye was lovely worth a visit

We had a reservation for a table downstairs, which was really good as the restaurant is split in some tables on the one side and the pinchos bar on the other. Sitting downstairs gives you the possibility to eat really nicely and enjoy the pulsating action at the bar without being crammed in there. Our food was delicious, the portions... More

We went here for lunch with our son. When we asked whether there was a children's menu, we were told that it was a restaurant and restaurants are not usually for children! Nonetheless they managed to whip up something more or less suitable. The grown-ups among us had however to put up with fish in an pil-pil sauce that had... More

Good service, delicious food and cava. Not cheap but very enjoyable. If you enjoy fish this is a great choice, love the dining room.

This one stands out for us - whether it's for the glorious building and decor, the superb service, or the wonderful pintxos - this was a highlight of the MANY pintxos bars we visited during our stay.
