Try the Voll Damm Double Malt beer served here. In Spain, where most bars have only one brand on tap, Marakay offers a flavorful option. The bar keeper is friendly and enjoys trying his English.

One traditional bar where they really care about their coffee. Always prepared with care, always excellent. It you add their famous Iberico "pintxos" and the equally great "tortilla" you get a "do not miss" place

Been coming here every single time I'm in Bilbao and it is certainly one of the best bars in town. Their small "bocatas" may be a little pricey but they are sure worth it. The coffee is the best I've ever had, would recommend it...More

Probably the very best ham we had in any bar. Very plain and simple Pintxos but the quality of the ham was enough. Yet again lovely smooth local Rioja to wash it down.

Customer friendly, good value, simple and tasty tapas, air-con and free wi-fi... We went there every other day during our 2 weeks stay in Bilbao.

Nice place, a little bit old-fashioned. Great ham rolls and good beer. Close to the Huevo Frito, a crowded tapas bar around the corner.
