Busy and buzzy!

Was taking here by a local to sample some dishes which included the cheese soup and rib...both divine. Great wine selection, good service, clean bathrooms and a great atmosphere.

Great pinxos and refreshing txakoli. We ordered items from the menu also and was great. We sat outside on the table and people watched. It was a nice saturday lunch. We were there at 11am and it got busy at noon.

We tried both hot (cooked a la minute) and cold pintxos and they are both enjoyable. The foie and beef rib and soft shell crab tempura are excellent. Nice Rioja wine by the glass is especially enjoyable. Spanish ham on bread rubbed with ripen tomato, creamy croquetta, are among some of the standouts. Try, try, and try.... Not too expensive...

We stopped for lunch. Since this was our only stop in Bilbao I cannot compare to other local stops and differ to others. We sat in the rear which was clean but drab and wish we would have sat outside or in the bar area. The food and service was fine and I recommend if in the area. We spend... More

It's easy to see why this bar was heaving on a Saturday night. We had embarked on a long 'pintxo crawl' around the old town, and this was right up there with the very best. No point in trying to describe the varieties that were on offer - just accept that they are outstanding, have another glass of wine and... More

This place was packed with locals. Big variety of pintxos and very reasonably priced. I didn't speak any Spanish but the staff was very helpful and smiley. I ordered four pinxtos and they all tasted great.

On a recent visit to Bilbao on a Sunday noon, we were looking for a place to have lunch-Plaza Nueva has more than several restaurants, all brimming with tourists and locals alike. To be honest, there was nothing noteworthy about this restaurant: the service was almost exclusively at the bar (no waiters even though they have a menu), not to... More

We ate at almost all pintxos bars in Old Town and this is clearly the best. They do have English menu but it's not easy to find, they are hung on the wall along the narrow corridor. The menus all look the same and most of them are in Spanish, but look closely you will find one or two in... More

We kept going back to Gure Toki for its modern take on pintxos. Try the seared foie gras with caramelised apple. Simply delicious. It was all good. The service was friendly and there is a small dining area at the back with tables and chairs if you don't want to stand. Make sure you look at the board for the... More
