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!

A modern place in the old town of Bilbao that serves gorgeous tapas with an almost oriental and contemporary style. Shredded duck with crushed peanut springs to mind. The waiter told us to help ourselves and tell him when we were finished eating how many tapas we had, then pay him. I love honesty!! Very popular with young and old.... More

Very friendly and bustling pintxo bar, with a fun young vibe. Good choices of pintxos with a modern twist. Definitely worth a visit. Good value for money.

I liked my pinchos here - they were creative and with asian flair. Though the prawn salad might have been a bit fresher, all in all, we enjoyed a good lunch here.

The place is quite pretentious but the tapas are not so tasty and vigorously fusion, with asian tastes and tortillas (the corn one from mexico) ans stuff like that. I was there in a very dead moment so maybe that's an excuse too but the nextdoor santamaria was packed like hell.

It desrves the visit. If you want to eat pinchos or tapas you are in the right place. There are even grilled in the hour tapas. The place is very beautiful
