The bar had a fairly large variety of tapas but incredibly bad wine and service. I got the paired wine quickly but what annoyed me was that the people who came in after me got service. So for any single women out there I would skip this bar there are many others to choose from.

Dined here with an old friend and business colleague. We chose a menu competitively priced with plenty of choice at €13.5, with nice young Navarra red wine. Fish soup and Solomillo medallions of beef were both excellent and very filling. The dining room is very nice, service friendly and my friend told me it has hardly changed in many years,... More

This is a nice restaurant, with very good food. Service was fast and very friendly. Food was quite good. Prices were quite reasonable considering the whole meal we had. The 1st floor dining room has a nice decoration.

Very pleasant dining area with pleasant staff, bit more expensive than some eateries but worth the extra. Starts to get busy around 9.30 so eat around 8.00

The little pinxto's where pieces of art here - nothing like in the other places. If you're in Pamplona, this is a MUST see place! Highly recommended - I will certainly go back there!

Our Pamplona base being in the old town, and our legs tired from doing a short stretch of the Camino del Santiago, our group of two families had little energy to look beyond the old city walls for dinner ... we were fortunate to find the Casa Otano. We had no reservations, but after grabbing a few pintxos and a... More

For English travellers the restaurant opens at 9pm and is closed Sundays. I went on a Monday and was told a reservation was not necessary. The restaurant was full however by 10pm so I strongly recommend a reservation if you are going Friday or Saturday. The food is typical Spanish. My lamb chops were the best I have eaten for... More

We got a tip from Spanish ladies on the street for a good restaurant. And what is better than a suggestion from locals? We had no reservation but we still managed to get a good table for 4 and a baby stroller. Two of us shared a menu, which was absolutely no problem and the two others had only the... More

We went to Otano without a reservation on Saturday night during StFermin 2014. A really busy night and a very popular street. We were assured of a table as long as we would wait a while. We were happy do do this as we had eaten in Otano twice previously and very much enjoyed our meals. while waiting we enjoyed... More
