Lots of good eating/drinking places here

A really good choice of restaurants serving both pintoxs and full meals. A good selection of wines and beers wherever you go.

We stopped at an outdoor cafe to enjoy the plaza. Very clean area. There was plenty of people watching while we enjoyed relaxing.

What an incredible place this is. Went on a Sunday lunchtime when the flea market was on. Bustling, busy and really friendly. Loved it.

Assuming to have about 30-40 bars and bodegas situated like a framwork around the square place. Very nice old houses building the attractive Placa Nuevo. Really worth to stay and have some drinks and pintxos.

Plaza Nueva is an interesting square located in Bilbao's old town. There are several choices for pintxos in different establishments on all four sides. The square looked clean and there are plenty of opportunities to get some photos.

Stroll around the square and have a drink in a few places and grab some pinxtos. We didn't bother going for dinner any evening - just grazed our way around the Plaza! Really nice spot - and absolutely buzzing on a Sat and Sun lunchtime.

We found Plaza Nuevo to be a bit too bustling and busy for relaxing at a cafe. It was just too crowded to enjoy a coffee or beer. But if you want a high energy place this is it.

This square is similar yet smaller and not as beautiful as plaza mayor de Madrid. There is some shops and reseurants that you can enjoy.

Plaza Nueva is a great spot to grab a bite to eat and chill out. The area is bustling with lots of little bars and cafes serving delicious Pintxos. During the night, the plaza is very busy and it can feel a little intimidating entering the small bars to grab a pintxos.
