Get out get out of the rain - quick bite and pit stop

As a family of 5 , we wanted to rest up before the rains really hit. The kitchens were not open until 6pm, but we came at around 4.30pm. That being said, friendly, english and spanish speaking waiter, with a lot of character and a smile for the "english". Simple foods, quiche and some much... read more

it was quite busy at the bar so we opted for table service - we were provided with menus and then ignored for about 15 mins until we went back to the bar to order food. Food itself was of okay quality but portion size was on the small side

Great food and great service😊 wonderful food, and a restaurant with atmosphere. Great choices, we were in the more formal dinner part, still not too formal. Highly recommend this place.

We had been wandering around looking for a non-pintxo restaurant where the children could eat. It was early evening. We went into Oquendo as a desperate measure and it turned out to be a good choice. A good variety of food both real and snacky. Good service too. We got in about 6:30 - early! By the time we left... More

The kitchen also served up the best ham and cheese toasts the kids ever had. A boon when travelling with tired hungry kids. Recommended

This was a good option for lunch (we had dishes with eggs which were quite tasty) and we also popped in for some dessert in the evening after we were feeling a bit "pintxod" out by going round the bars in the old town. It looks like it's a good option throughout the day (opens about 9am) and has lots... More

We could not find what we were looking for, so the owner put together a special meal, just for us. Wonderful food, great staff, good location and good value.

Atmospheric bar with lots of pintxos on the table. The sandwiches of the place are palatable and of considerable proportions. The one with brie, caramellized onion and tomato sauce was remarkably intriguing. Good place for a brekfast near the old town. The walls are decorated with posters of local events endowing the place with nostalgic ambience.

Having been 'ripped off' the night before in the tourist section of the old town by visiting a poor quality but expensive bar we were looking for somewhere better! We had a superb 10 euro lunch here consisting of 3 cold pintxos and 2 hot ones. There was a great selection on offer. This plus a glass of beer each... More

This restaurant is conveniently located across the street from the Cristina Maria. We actually went there after an exhausting night in Old Town fighting the crowds three times. It's a great late night stop for a glass of wine or light tapas. Very busy, you will wait for a table. The special of the day was paella and the racion... More
