Simply excellent

Few places open early in Pamplona but this one gets off to a flying start, even at 9.30 in the morning the tapas are out and good to go. Everything is fresh, the staff super efficient and friendly. Also it is very cheap so give it a look.

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.

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 great meal! Wife had the steak, and my... More

We went there for the pintxos (tapas) and we were not disappointed. Basically El Menditero is a casual, informal pintxos bar in the heart of the old city. A good sign is that most all the customers are locals. Service is friendly, there is a good selection of excellent pintxos and the prices are very competetive. One bonus is that... More

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
