Excellent tapas

We had a light tapas lunch here on a cold, wet day in Pamplona. The service was fast and the tapas beautifully flavoursome, even though our lack of Spanish meant that we were not sure what we were eating! Very popular with the locals.

All I had here was a glass of rioja crianza with accompanying free tapa with a friend prior to going elsewhere for dinner. The quality of wine was superb, the tapa was a small coated meat roll, not sure if beef but tasted wonderful. Special night mean this was only €2 each, which was amazing value for such quality, with... More

I had read excellent reviews on Trip Advisor about this place and we did not want to miss it on our Camino stop at Pamplona. The choice of tapas is excellent and apart from the fact that they are presented in a nice and creative manner they are also a feast of the best fresh ingredients that the Navarra region... More

Well presented food. Went after seeing it on Rick Stein's Spain programme. We booked for the restaurant and we were the only ones there to start with. The bar is packed for the Pintxos. The meal was lovely, had octopus starter and oxtail for my main really delicious. Would recommend.not the cheapest establishment but the food was high quality.

We read about this restaurant in the tapas route booklet in the hotel. We went to try the signatures tapas but were brought more - but this was fine as they were great. We were charged a special price which i can only assume was in relation to the tapas route. The waitress did tell us what everything was. The... More

Having no place picked out, we walked by, glanced at the menu on the wall and walked in. My wife did pinxos and I the 11 Euro 3 course and wine menu. Both were outstanding. We'll go again.

We went there twice, once for the pintxos (the word they use in northern Spain for tapas) and once to the restaurant. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The servers were efficient and knowledgeable. In most pintxos bars you have to go to the counter to choose the food, but here you sit down and are brought a menu,... More

We spent three days in Pamplona, and I can say this was the best restaurant or pinchos place we have been to. The first time we went there at lunch for pinchos, and tried 4 each, with a glass of wine. The dishes are very interesting, very accurate and stylish. We spent 15€ each. The waitress was very kind and... More

We arrived bere just for chance. 3 types of choice: tapas e raciones served at the "bar" and menu à la carte in the restaurant. Better booking in advance if you want to sit in the restaurant. Excellent quality, presentation and kindness (we dont speak spanish and they tried to explain us each dish).

If you are looking for good food, away from tapas this is a good alternative. We where surprised by very delicate dishes and taste. Highly recommended. Good value.
