We stumbled across this little bar and all I can say is WOW! Great atmosphere along with wonderful service. The pintxos are truly wonderful and very fresh. Bar tender, Israel, is accommodating and helpful. five stars all the way. Oh and really good wine selection. #Happydays

Brilliant, newly renovated and great customer service and pinchos (tapas). In the middle of Bilbao where there is plenty of other bars competing with each other but this one is the best!

First time here in Bilbao for business. Of course once I'm down with work I love to explore the area. While walking around downtown I stumble upon this cute restaurant. Let's just say that the food was more than exceptional. Service was amazing too. Give it a go. You won't be disappointed.

This is one of the best pintxo bars in the neighborhood. First of all, the cozy atmosphere and friendly service lend itself to snuggling up to bar and trying the wide array of pintxos and wine by the glass, both reasonably priced. Secondly, the freshness of the pintxos was notable in comparison to some of the other places we visited... More

There are some old reviews on here but in summer 2014 this is a great bar. The pintxos were lovely, the bar staff great and able to give advice in English. Then the champagne! €35 for a bottle of Mummy and we had two jamot pintxos with it which they refused payment for. Great bar. You should try it.

During the pintxo competition we visited this small bar in the new city centre. A street lined with bars and restaurants. Nothing fancy....a typical spanish bar with excellent tapas. We thought the bacalao pintxos was the best in the contest. Reasonable prices for pintxos and drinks. A few glasse of wine with a pintxos meal shoudl not cost more than... More
