authentic food and great service!

We have been to this bar/restaurant on two occasions and have been delighted on both visits. There is a range of 15 tapas, and they are different to other tapas bars in that they try different variations of food. The ambience is second to none and the décor is of 'old Spain' with wooden barrels... read more

We ate there during lunchtime on Sunday. Quite busy place, we chose to have some tapas at the bar and wine by glasses. Tapas are exposed at the bar, so you can just point the one you like and order. Broader offer is available in menu. We tried pinchos from the bar: croqueta de jamon, pincho with prawns wrapped in... More

My parents adore this place, and they are right. As soon as you enter, you discover an amazing bar full of beautiful "tapas", in the cosy atmosphere of an old-style wooden decoration. Actually, the place is quite new, but it seems its has been here forever. You may eat standing by the bar or at a table (that sometimes is... More

Mouthwatering selection of interesting tapas upon arrival, we salivated and sampled and swashed it all down with generous glasses of tinto and then fnished with calamares cooked to perfection. Olde world ambiance, cosy and perfect for a near zero temperature evening in December. Spanish bliss.

Good atmosphere. Great staff. Let down by food. If only the food lived up to how great all the staff were. After a long drive from Galicia thus place suited it's purpose. Quick food. But the winner in the day were the awesome staff

Found La Pilara in the 'Tubo' during the 19th Concurso de tapas de Zaragoza. Lots of people doing a Tapas tour having a snack and drink in each place. Great atmosphere, great food.The wine was the best Casa Rioja we had in a week and really cheap. A great find and really one to try.

Seemed as if locals were ordering from menu. We saw everyone getting what we thought were onion rings. We ordered by pointing...and wound up with Calamari. FANTASTIC( I do use that word a... More
