Popped in twice to have the pintxos here and was pleasantly surprised the first time round as they offered a different take on what the others had. Recommended is the Pulpo de la Plancha.

What a lucky find! This pintxos bar is simply amazing! The pintxos are very fresh, creative, well presented and tasty. They are kept behind a glass counter which we like for hygiene. Good wine selection, helpful staff. From the beef rib and seaweed tapas to the stuffed squid and salmon empanadilla pintxos everything was just perfect.

This is a jewel among the pintxo bars. The warm ones are especially good. Foie con manzana y Pedro Ximenez is melting sun in the mouth, costilla de vaca is probably the best grilled meat I ever tasted, and txistorra will make you go for more beer. The stuff is very fast and helpful, the people hanging there look as... More

This is our second visit to Bilbao, and Gure Toki stands out amongst all of the excellent food. Others here have talked about the wonderful, and very reasonably priced pintxos, so I thought I'd mention the wine. This looks like a typical 'hole in the wall' bar, but the short wine list is great. I've paid 12 euros for Juan... More

This tapas bar has stunning food that rivals anything we tried in San Sebastien: we tried Sopa de Idiazab- a small bowl of local cheese soup with wild mushroom & a soft boiled quail egg; Foie con Manzanay - Foiegrassliver with an apple puree; A prawn rissole topped with tempura style prawn; Jambon, wild mushroom with a tiny sliver of...

We ate our way across the northern coast of Spain (San Sebastian, Bilbao, Cudillero, La Coruna, Vigo) and had great food everywhere, especially pintxos. While it's hard to compare so many great places, Gure Toki stands out at the top for pintxos. The location in Plaza Nueva is charming and makes for fun people watching. Of course, it's ultimately about... More

This was a two minute river bank walk from the apartment we rented during our four day stay in Bilbao, opposite the Guggenhiem. Close to the old quarter with beautiful plaza views of Bilbao. Busy most evenings mainly with couples, more of a cocktail bar that serves food with seating inside. Serving imaginative pixtos with a wide variety of fillings,... More

We arrived here during the great week so the place was jam packed. Even still we got some great food here and really enjoyed it, what stands out was the lovely soft shell crab and the homemade croquettes. Pinxto's on the bar were great as well. Def. worth a visit.

Very nice pintxos, although not the best we had in Bilbao. Vary friendly staff, helping us with directions to other bars.

Ate here 2 times. Always very busy around lunch/diner (keep in mind that's later than in northern europe) so finding a table on their outside terrace can be difficult. The food is delicious, try their homemade croquetas (stuffed with shrimp and mushroom - 6 euro for 5 pcs) or their award winning Calamares ("Rabas" in Bask - 6 euro for... More
