Great pintxos

Archetypical "pinchos" restaurant. Chaothical service and extremely good and tasty dishes. Ask for the foie; you won't regret it...

We went there by a recommendation from a local lady, she was right, the service was excellent very quick and the taste of the food was as expected. It is very cheap compared with other similiar places around Pamplona and on top of that they have the recognition from a local contest of the "best pinchos of the year" during... More

For the first time I tasted pintxos in Spain, and I did it in Pamplona at the Gaucho. After that one, I ate a lot of other pintxos, but never as the firsts... The local is pretty small, but with a long counter, above which a lot of different kinds of pintxos are shown!! Good choice!

I am sorry to say we only popped in for a drink but I was eyeing up the pinchos on the bar, huge variety and they looked fantastic. Waitress was bionic serving about 4 people at once, clearing tables and making drinks - where were her colleagues though as clearly she is way too busy!!

The best pintxos bar in Pamplona. Seafood pintxos at its very best. Among them sea urchin cream, crab and a great goose liver pintxo that melted in our mouths. We went there for a second time and the experience remained at the highest level. This is a place I recommend to everyone as outstanding.

This is the place to be to enjoy complex Pintxos and to experience the real Spanish way of going outdoors to have a drink, a bite and a chat with beloved ones. Pamplona is great to visit but if you are in Pamplona you must visit Bar Gaucho

An enjoyable lunch stop at this popular bar, with a nice range of tasty pintxos, but the food of every dish was puréed. One of my fellow diners commented that it was the best pintxos for babies due to the consistency of the food. The atmosphere was very buzzy, with a mixture of locals and tourists keeping the place lively.... More

Lovely tapas or Pintxos, very different. We had the truffled egg, a prawn and spinach pancake, a duck rillete cruistillant, the house lasagne, the fois gras, the bomba (meatball) and chorizo. They almost paid us for the wine it was so cheap! Would love to go again if I visit Pamplona.

The good selection of tapas are presented at the bar. It was not outstandig but solid. Some tapas were way too creamy, cheesy and therefore shallow in taste while others with truffles or foie gras haven't had a chance to develop their full potential. Prices range from 2 to 3.20EUR per portion and the ambiente is cozy.
