Amazing pintxos and great atmosphere

We stopped off here on our first day because I'd seen amazing reviews on TripAdvisor: we were not disappointed.

Bilbao is famous for its pintxos: small double-bite size snacks. A lot of them come out of a can and are served on stale bread. This place is, however, totally different: a cut above the rest. I'm not prone to hyperbole but I have to say this place serves food that is quite simply sublime. All fresh and real produce.... More

We enjoyed our first experience of pintxos but rapidly got bored of 'what can we stuff into a bread roll next'..... Cue Gure Toki - inventive and delicious, and, we later learned from locals, highly regarded by them.

We have been there by the middle of March. we have tested many foods but our favorite was foie grass, which was delicious. this is my favorite food for this restaurant. we have also tested calamari, octopus and green pepper was also worth to test. off course Rioja wine and apple cider are my favorite too.

Bilbao worth a visit not just for the Guggenheim museum but for its food too. Bar, restaurant are everywhere and they offer great Pintxos selections. It's hard to pick up one on top of the others but Gure Toki is one of them: try and you will fall in love with it! In the heart of the old city this... More

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. The staff are quick and helpful and I had a great time. The second visit the following evening did not go as well as the previous... More

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...
