A small bar with 1 table outside and 1 stool inside. Gets busy and crowded, so although the food is excellent the experience could be better. We all had one dish, I had "Oreja de Cerdo con Romescu" which was fantastic, the other tapas where very good. There are no tapas on display as they are all made to order... More

Great place and worth the high review score. Very nice tapas. Nothing at the counter but all prepared fresh in the kitchen. The tomato stuffed with tune sounds simple but is delicious. Same goes for the goat cheese.

I tried their famous dishes, beef cheek and bomba rice. The beef cheek was soft and tasted ok but similar cheeks could be have all over the world nowadays. And I had no idea why the rice was special.

We had chosen a few bars for this particular evening for a Pintxos tour & Bar Borda Berri was very high on the list to try. It was very busy when we arrived & there was standing room only at one of the wall tables. We both ordered the veal cheeks with red wine along with a glass of wine.... More

After being under impressed with Bar Nestor, we were extremely impressed with Borda Berri. Great waiter, fabulous, inventive pintxo from the chalk board, duck was to die for as were the veal cheeks. A reputation well deserved.

We started an evening trying several pinchos as this bar and loved everything. The La Hoguera (smoked fish) was fantastic

The pinchos here are excellent. But the servers are not as great as you would want them to be. Then again, it was incredibly crowded on a Sunday & people celebrating the finals of the crew/rowing races in Pais Vasco. Good place to stop in for a beer and pincho.

this place is always busy. The pintxos are of a gourmet variety and cost a little more but they are delicious.

We found this place on the last night. Pintxos in this bar is very different to the rest we tried.We all agreed it was number 1 on our list.ll If you go there you must try Veal cheeks,duck,pulpo and pork ribs.The goats cheese risotto is nice too.
