This little bar serves many varieties of tortilla, probably the best that I have ever tasted. Try the picante, it's amazing! We squeezed several visits into a short break here, and will definitely return.

There are many branches of Zaharia dotted about Bilbao the one we visited was on a square not from El Corte Ingles. It has outside seating, plenty of space inside. The tapas weren’t the best but the staff were friendly.

Stopped there for breakfast as we had done a few years ago. Excellent food and drink and the food on the counter looked most appealing. Would make a repeat visit at lunchtime or in the evening if and when we go to Bilbao again. Staff...More

Zaharra might be a small place, red-fronted in one corner of the Plaza Nueva, but it packs in a lot. We got lucky with a couple of seats at the bar, grabbed a Txakoli and a beer, and wandered over the pintxos on offer. There...More
