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

Had high expectations given the reviews here but was underwhelmed. Tapas were reasonably good but no better than that and there are certainly better such bars in Bilbae and elsewhere. Service was good though. Pleasant girl. Cold beer. Cheap. Don't get the fuss but I would go back as part of a pub crawl, not as my destination. Try Santa... More

Also great prices and atmosphere,and nice drinks,but the pintxos are whatmakes this place special. The only problem is that the toilets were a bit dirty.
