We stopped in around 2:00 pm for lunch pintxo's. They have a good vegetarian selection, as well as plenty with meat. It's sort of a hole in the wall, friendly with cool drawings on the wall behind the bar. Nice that the pintxo's are labeled...More

Best pintxos we had in Bilbao. especially recommend the vegetable fritters and falafel with shitake. Service was good. Not the most appealing place, aesthetically, but otherwise very good.

We went for dinner and we ate delicious tapas. There is an ample variety of foods available. The place is not so big , only few tables. The price is 1.90 Euro each. I recommend it!!

You have to ask for the gluten free options and they cook it to order. We had the duck in peanut sauce which was delicious. For 2 drinks and 2 pintxos we paid €8! Packed due to carnival but still space and we came out...More
