We fancied a meal and a lot of places in Laguardia quite rightly seem to do Pinxto's. Nice and efficient service, meal was quite nice without being brilliant. As title suggests, probably more suited to daytime when the views of the surrounding vineyards would be spectacular.

We stopped in for lunch. They were expecting a group and the service was slow for other patrons. They did not have a couple of the appetizers we requested. We tried the vegetable stew. The broth was tasty but it was simply an expensive bowl of overcooked veggies. The croquettes all tasted basically the same. Perhaps we ordered the wrong... More

I can't comment on the food as we didn't get that far... We had a lovely wine tour and tasting at Yssios today and thought we'd round it off with lunch here and take in the great views. Despite there only being 2 tables taken at 3.30pm, a very rude and grumpy waiter tried to give us a table on... More

Absolutely the best grilled Hake we've had. The owner personally took care of us, and gave us an outstanding evening. Too much food. We shared a salad, traditional potatoes with peppers, chorizo and pork spareribs to savor a local dish. Could have only had the entre as it came wth potatoes and vegetables. Or, shared the grilled fish as it... More

We arrived there after a couple of other spots were not on the mark. The server appeared grumpy at first but warmed up. They had a Riojan option which was a set 5 course menu featuring the highlights of the region complete with wine. The food was extradition and the wine while, not a top wine, worked well with the...

Excellent pick up and return service to this centrally situated restaurant means no need to drive or worry about taxi. Great service and wonderful selection of food and good rioja wines. Ideal place for a group dinner.

Found this place by chance. Most of the poor reviews are old and we found nothing to fault. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent. My husband and I shared a turbot and our friends had salted sea bass. Both very good, beautifully cooked and huge portions. The views from the restaurant are spectacular and the local wine... More

We were a party of 5 trying out the restaurant. The view is great but our food was average to poor. I had the baby lamb which came with sliced potatoes. It was clear the lamb had not been reheated very well and the potatoes and plate were almost cold. I sent it back to be heated up. It was... More
