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.

Busy with a Tapas bar downstairs and a Basque Restaurant upstairs. Like most popular places in Madrid very busy but everything is fresh and great atmosphere.

I've traveled to Spain, in various regions, 5 times now. I have not eaten pinxos in San Sebastián, but I was impressed with this place. The items on the bar were varied (not all variations of ham and cheese either), and they circulated fresh items or hot items like croquettes from the kitchen regularly. The concept is brilliant! You take... More

A little way out of the Busy and noisy Gran Via tourist area, and without any pretention, you can find this friendly tapas place. One has to understand how it functions: get in, get a plate, help yourselves to the tapas at the counter or wait for the hot ones that the waiters will proposed. Once you finish eating, bring...

Wife and I wandered into Orio's at 12.30 pm, intending only to snack on 2 freshly shucked + a glass of cava each and some Pintxos (Orio serves Basque country food, so its not tapas) but ended up sharing 16 selections (including repeats). What you see is really what you get. Fresh, excellent and delicious! After a day of shopping,... More

We came across Orio by accident, and could immediately tell from the ambience that it would be different. Despite four years in Spain we'd not come across this way of serving tapas before: a waiter passes by, introducing the latest dish to circulate the bar, you grab one if you fancy it, and leave the stick on your plate, the...

Orio has given me one of my best eating experiences during my trip in Madrid. The atmosphere was lovely, staff was wonderful, and the food.. was incredible. The theme of the restaurant is that you choose from a large variety of tapas on the counter, and you pay after eating based on the number of toothpicks on your plate (they... More
