This is part of a chain and i had eaten at the Valencia branch so i knew what to expext. There is a very good choice of tapas laid out along the bar in display containers. You get a plate and choose your tapas. Then order your drinks. The top tip is to be in there by about 8pm to... More

This Tapas resturant in Fuencarral.has original tapas with excellent quality raw materials, I would suggest the squid sausages and the revisited tortilla (depicted in photo on the left). Bathroom is very clean. Staff is educate and friendly. Value for money very good.

Although this place was definitely better last year (as others have remarked), Orio is still a fantastic place to go for tapas. Considering that tapas are said to originate from the Basque region, what better place to try them than at a Basque restaurant? The service is actually decent, the decor is great, and the ambiance is always an enjoyable... More

This is a basque pintxo (tapas) place. The variety of pintxos was much larger last summer. This summer we were disappointed. Hard to find chairs. One or two pintxos is ok not more. Try txacoli, the basque white wine with pintxos.

We stopped in here because it was close to where we were staying and loved the serve yourself options. They were all the same price and they count how many you had by the toothpicks left on your plate, which were many. We enjoyed a few glasses of wine and the service was very warm and friendly, all for around... More

Enjoyable moment at this unpretentious place, where you just go to the bar and pick the plates that you like. Correct wine choice (though not outstanding). Friendly staff although no foreign language spoken at all.

There are a big variety of tapas to choose and all looks very delicious. Dont miss the "pan con tomate", its not on the menu but dont hesitate to ask. Also try the tortilla. The prices are ok and the mood is laid back.
