Wonderful pinxtos on display of course - given the location - but I have to admit we kept returning each day for the calamari - freshly cooked to order and absolutely delicious with a side order of small fried green peppers. Great wine too and good value we thought. Friendly staff, cool interior. Very busy which speaks volumes.

Moving from another Tapas Bar across the square we were welcomed into Gure Toki. Still hungry and thirsty we had a beer and lovely Tapas and a tasty portion of baked cheesecake. Super! Staff were all pleasant and helped a non Spanish speaking couple have a great Tapas experience.

After checking a few tapas bars around the Plaza Nueva, we decided to go in to Gure Toki also because of the good reviews in Tripadvisor. There were some unusual tapas on offer. In addition to the tapas on the counter some hot dishes were also available on order. Service was friendly and the prices although more expensive than in... More

Gure Toki means something like Our Local in Basque, and there is a lot of Basque used in this bar. Even though most visitors will not be able to speak Basque, they will appreciate the pride in the language, culture and of course cuisine. The pintxos are the stars here, and they are very inventive with what they have on... More

We went to Gure Toki because it was one of the highest ranked restaurants/bar of Bilbao. We were a little disappointed. The pintxos they serve aren't bad but they aren't particularly good either. We found other places around town to have equal or higher quality pintxos. Furthermore the place was crowded and because of this not particularly clean; many tables... More

Very tasty and original pintxos, different from the regular types that you can find everywhere. High quality.

Great tapas experience in the old town (Casco Viejo) of Bilbao. Of the tapas bars in the square (plaza nueva) this was the best of the three we visited. Better Pinxos, better service and atmosphere. Awesome apple tart. We will return.

Having enjoyed very good tapas at Victor Montes and at Cafe Bar Bilbao the last two days, I suspected the Plaza Nueva in the Casco Viejo was worth further exploration. We were on our way through the plaza on our way elsewhere, when we stumbled upon Gore Toki. Looking at their selection of pintxos and learning they'd be closed tomorrow... More

Very nice both indoors and outside on the terrace. We had a couple of tapas and a drink for lunch and returned in the evening for dinner. Very helpful staff and lovely food. The place must be very popular, lots of people there.

Grab a table outside and don't let it go! Great choice of food and wine and location if delightful. Lots of places around the square but this seems to be the most popular with the locals!
