We stumbled across El Pintxo and were shown to a table outside by the charming husband & wife owners despite turning up towards the end of the lunch service. We enjoyed some excellent dishes including squid in ink and octopus accompanied by a great Rioja. Highly recommended - will definitely return

We spent a really enjoyable evening here and enjoyed superb genuine Spanish produce cooked well and served with a smile. A family run restaurant who's aim is to provide customer satisfaction.
The pata negra ham was lovely,the prawns in garlic were also very good.
Highly recommend a visit.

Very good place for dinner but less people came for this small but good restaurant. It serves native Spanish food and wine with fruits.
Unfortunately Paella is only served on Saturday since the Mom of the owner only comes that day for cooking.
Price is acceptable for three main dishes and one ham plate with wine, less than 70 Euros.

We enjoyed a good tapas lunch at this Spanish restaurant in Avignon. We ordered a selection of traditional pinxtos dishes including patatas bravas, tortilla, anchovies, stuffed peppers and chorizo and ham. All tasty and were of the same quality as you would expect in Spain. We ate outside and watched the world go buy.

Great place for lunch and dinner.

Paella full of prawns, chicken and sausage. High quality fresh food. Buy the plat et dessert with coffee and leave the tourist trap alone. Friendly owner who understood our Aussie humour and appreciated my broken French.
