We entered the Irrintzi by the amount of people inside and outside, moreover we wanted to taste some of the local cuisine. The pintxos was very goodwith a lot of options and the price was nice.

The Pinxtos in Irrintzi are worldclass. Combinations of grilled monkfish with paella rice, burrito and crisp potato dreads, grilled scampi with avocado-pulpo salad.... Etcetera... Try them all and have a glass of cider to complete your Pinxtos-feast. We will come back, that is for sure.

Visited here on a Friday and Saturday evening and on both nights there was a great atmosphere and the selection of pintxos was good. A mixture of hot and cold items being served regularly from the kitchen, most of which are with a modern twist. Service was friendly and quick - just ask for a plate when you go in... More

We visited at 9:30pm on a Thursday evening. The "smiling waitress" noted by a previous reviewer must have gone on holiday, as the very fierce Basque punky lady behind the counter definitely would have prefered to have been somewhere else. Attitude rules here, as, alas, evidently frequently in Bilbao. (If you want smiles and service, try Barcelona...) The Pintxos were... More

Great place, not pretending anything, just offering smiling waitresses assisting you to pick up delicate pintxos among their 15-20 offerings. 2 persons with beers, 30€.

After reading the recommendations for Irrintzi, we just had to try it as well. The shredded duck with apple and peanuts was amazing! Really nice host, and a nice place to hang out for a meal. It's not expensive (we paid around 20 EUR for 10 pintxos and 4 beers), and you just pick what you want and tell the... More

Great tapas with reasonable price. If you're fed up with the usual pintxos then this is for you- all the fun of mini portions with the novelty of Japanese spanish variety. We had sea weed pintxos and mini brochettes with a Japanese sauce and cute packaging. It's a great bar and we only spent €14 for a great beer, wine... More

We did a couple of tapas tours in Bilbao and this one came out on top: imaginative and very tasty tapas. Loved the decor too!
