A really friendly bar - cosy but great wine and pinchos. Just go for it and choose something you don't recognise - it's worth it! Wine and food such good value.
This place is on the street with "all the action." and next door to "La Vina del Ensanche" which are both great! We came here first and sat at counter and ate and ate and drank and drank .. . . .and it came out to around 55 euro!.. . . The service is attentive and the food and wine.... More
We pretty much had the same experience as the last reviewer (23 October). We went there for "lunch" although we knew the local custom was to have one pintxos/drink and move on to the next place.

We had a few tapas and some wine. The staff were friendly and helpful (spoke English too) and recommended some fantastic wines for us to try. Pinxtos tasty - crab sticks in my mind!
