We tried about a half dozen tapa places in Pamplona, and Bar Gaucho was our clear favorite. There was a large selection of tapas, including some unusual things, and they were all well prepared and fresh. We also found the atmosphere great: locals and tourists, and a terrific Australian bartender. We liked it so much we went back the next... More

The pintxos were ok but lacked freshness and anything that excited us. Compared to other places in the area Gaucho did not rank the highest. However, I would... More

In a town with hundreds of pintxo bars (which were ALL very busy), we asked a local for her recommendation. She said this was here favorite. We only tried two, as it was 3pm, and we didn't want to eat too much before dinner. They were both very good, but very rich. Everything looked good, and very artsy. Service was... More

Really nice place for casual dining with some of the best Pintxos i have tasted in the region. Great ambiance to the bar and friendly staff all added to a really good evening. Will definitely revisit when back in Pamplona.

Great tapas bar. Cold Kronenbourg, great wine selection by the glass & lots of tapas/pinchos choices. Great recommendation for someone eating a quick bite any time of day.
