Nice place with friendly service. Genuine little place with authentic atmosphere. Good traditional pintxos. (was there in September 2016)

This pintxo bar is not on the streets with all the rest but has one of the best bites in the city, the brick de bacalao! Friendly service and local atmosphere. Should not be missed.

Traveling to the Basque region with some time in Spain before we ate a lot of pintxos. A great way to "graze" and snack while you wander around we never found a place to actually STAY and eat / drink until Bar Haizea. Literally everything...More
