Maybe we didn't arrive at the right time of day but pintxos looked unappetising (compared to other places we have visited) and were very limited. There was a gluten free menu, but nothing on that menu was available so we left.

We have been here three times, the start and end of a three week basque tour. The food is great, you never get the same. The prices are fair, the staff is friendly. What's not to like about this place?

Fluorescent lighting, no special decorations, we tried a few pinches. I didn't get what's so special, maybe we went at wrong time of the day. It was very quiet and so little people. Couldn't get the hype.

Interesting pintxos compared to other places. Falafel with shitake mushroom, duck with apple slices, Granny Smith alioli with swordfish and shrimp. After 14 pintxos and 2 waters plus one cava, one beer and 1 rioja, we paid €32. Excellent value for money, highly recommend.

Friendly welcome from staff but venue a bit rough and ready - not sure how the prices compare to others in the area @ 1:80 euro a piece. The chicken nests were tasty and the omelette ok - cold burger a bit like a meatball....More

I had a quick lunch there with pintxos (please refer to call them "tapas"... It is a different thing). The waitress at the counter was very helpful and nice! Good pintxos and nice fresh environment

Visited with my husband as we remembered the name from our surf of TA. My Spanish isn't the best but the guy behind the bar made it easy and we enjoyed 3 delicious pintxos, beer and water at a pretty reasonable price for Casco Viejo.
