“THE place for tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

I love this place! The wine is excellent. I love the way that the waiters come around with tempting trays of tapas, and you pick the ones you would like to try. All have little sticks in them, and at the end the waiter counts up the sticks. Be careful though, as the price quickly mounts up!

“Too oily”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

We sat outside for the tapas and each tapas was prices from 1€ up. Most were too oily and served too often with bread. I think it's too touristic and fast food type of tapas. You can enjoy better tapas in restaurants where all the locals go for lunch. Te service and atmosphere was pleasant.

“Good selection of tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Our family of four had 26 tapa dishes at Pintxo, and they were all very good. In particular, the chicken pate, squid, mushroom crepe and steak were excellent. The house white wine was also quite good and reasonable as in most places in the area. The service was friendly and good as well. Parking was a bit hard to find even on Christmas Day, but everything else was good, including the short walk to the beach after a very full meal and the prices (all tapas were under 2 euros each). A great place to have a drink and some tapas right by the beach.

“Fantastic Tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We have been here and Fuengirola lots of times now, it is fantastic, they bring the hot and cold dishes round for you to choose. Then you pay by how many sticks you have eaten. They also do a limited menu of spag bol, chicken etc which is equally as delicious and very cheap. Will be back everytime we are in spain.
