Good food, Good staff.

Waitress immediately said that menu was only available in Spanish but she would translate for us. She did and we had an excellent meal for our Wedding Anniversary! I had the menu of the day. Interesting apple/cheese salad, followed by beef estafdos, ice cream and a glass of wine-€12! It was a... read more

I´ve been to many pintxo bars on juevintxos in Pamplona, and this is by far the best. Ingredients are premium, portions are generous, wine is above average and the bar staff is super nice.

This restaurant/bar is situated in the old part of Pamplona. Having eaten here on previous visits to Pamplona, four of us decided to go for lunch. The dining area is at the back, through the tapas bar. We all chose off the menu of the day. No English menu, the waitress did speak a little English, but best to have... More
