Visited on a food tour, definitely a place to go back too. The dates stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon melted in your mouth. Had a discussion over which was better: the green or red salsa over the pork. The final decision was they both got top ratings because they were so different from each other you could... More

This tapas bar is worth a visit to Seattle. In Spain, Tapas is often a mediocre quality fast food. In this place, the chef succeeds to exceed those expectations big time - while keeping prices at affordable levels. Even a simple Manchego dish gets enriched with a tasteful sauce. Highly recommended.

A great place to enjoy excellent Tapas in Seattle. Definitely one of my top 3 places in the city. Located in Belltown area it is easy to walk by so make sure you have the address. Inside you will find a contemporary restaurant that leads to a small but cosy patio. The food is excellent as is the wine and... More

This place is small but very quaint. Great music playing that matches the atmosphere. It is a little unassuming at first but the wait help is very friendly. We ordered the Serrano ham which was just so delicious and the bacon wrapped dates. These all come on little plates (tapas). The fried potatoes was another excellent dish along with the... More

Stumbled across this cosy, candlelit tapas bar/eatery on late night out in search of good food. Loads of great plates on offer, generous serves and hospitality. Salt cod cakes, grilled veg with romesco sauce, patatas bravas all outstanding, sliders exceptional too. Wish we had time to return.

My wife and I ate here recently and had very good meals. Remeber that this is a tapas bar so the portions are by definition small. The food was good and reasonably priced. The service was good and the wine list was good. My only complaint was that they don't have a coffee or espresso machine. I found that a... More

Good tapas, as good as one can get them outside Basque country. Good wine selection too. Friendly servers. However the portions (both wine and food) could be more generous. I really don;t get this minimalist thing. Basques are known to be stingy but there is no reason to overdo it when it comes to paying patrons. But the real problem,... More

We have lived in Spain and finding a 'typical' Spanish Tapa's restaurant can be hard. But this one is the real deal. You can sit at the bar and watch them make yours and other delicious tapas and meals. Their Sangria is great too!

Description
Pintxo (pronounced pin-cho peen-cho) is a Spanish Tapas Bar located in the heart of Belltown. Pintxo's micro-kitchen, smaller than most food truck kitchens, produces a vast array of basque small bites from traditional favorites such as paella and bacon wrapped dates to house cured meats, seafood and other dishes from San Sebastián, Bilbao and Valladolid. Tortilla Española, Bacalao Fritters, Montaditos de Serrano and Patatas Bravas to modern takes on the traditional dishes from various culinary regions of Spain, including San Sebastian, Barcelona and Madrid. Working in Pintxo's small but mighty kitchen, and without a gas grill, Chef de Cuisine David Haight and Sous Emelio Sansone use fresh ideas to create flavorful dishes. The seafood-forward menu, often consists of house-curing, poached dishes and unique ingredients like sea foam [not sure what to use here] . While a majority of the food is sourced locally, some ingredients such as the Spanish Cheeses and Jamon Iberico de bellota (cured ham from the acorn fed Iberico pig) Spanish octopus, Mediterranean Mussels and SPECIFIC NAME HERE clams are frequently used to create the traditional dishes that have been made in Spain and Pais Vasco (Basque Country) Basque country for centuries. The beverage menu features wine, liquor, beer and cider/cidra from Spain, although local wine and beer are also readily available and easily paired with PIntxo's Pintxo's bold and flavorful food. Like Pintxo's kitchen, the dining room is intimate and features bar and table seating as well as a front and back patio on sunny days and a well lit indoor atrium.
