A good recommendation

This was recommended to me by the Tourism Office. However, when I went at lunchtime, I found that it was only open in the evenings (don't know if the times change during the high season). It is a pintxos bar with menu. The pintxos I had from the bar were delicious. Of the two dishes I ordered... read more

Lovely little tapas bar. Great atmosphere and service. Just what was needed at lunchtime and we'd have come back at night if we weren't booked elsewhere.

We have been going to Zanpanzar for 9 years and it's truly amazing.. The food is fresh and delicious. The staff are great. The atmosphere is really good. Tonight it was packed and once again it lived up to expectations. Can not recommend it enough.

We had to wait a little bit for a table, but the wait was worth it! I really recommend this restaurant if you wanna eat pinxos like in the basc country.

Nice food but the bread was really baked too long. Nice concept, easy-going and friendly staff. Recommended for Girona.

Right in the centre of the old town. As you walk in you are greeted by a lovely selection of tapas on the bar. You collect a plate and choose what you would like. The cocktail sticks in each portion keep a record of what you have eaten. A lovely casual setting, good service and a great place to "people... More

Right in the middle of the Old City. We went in for a quick beer and ended up eating about 3 courses. They have a separate section for foies gras in the menu with very interesting combinations. A very good first meet with basque cuisine.

We collected visiting friends from the train station and had a wonderful tapas lunch at this taverna on one of the back streets of Girona. The bar was lined with very appetizing tapas and we each chose a few. They bring hot tapas around to the tables as they are prepared. Between the four of us we had eighteen tapas... More

Great concept, I had never been to a basque tapas bar before! This is a great spot we found while in Girona. They serve basque tapas which are called pintxos. There is an open buffet of little delights served on bread and kept together by a toothpick. Just go to the bar, get a plate and a wine and take... More

We live here in Girona and Zanpanzar is our favorite tapas place. Wonderful, casual atmosphere and great for families! The place opens at 7pm, which is early for most restaurants here in Girona. Grab a plate and pile on the pintxos. Be sure to save your toothpicks, as this is how they give you the bill. We have enjoyed ordering... More
