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

I have spent my whole adult life passionately fighting against racism. Yet here I am in Bilbao and have been eye rolled at by a rude waitress (owner take note: slim, hair up, glasses) who eye rolled because we could not understand each other. She...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

This is a small bar with a terrace on the Plaza Nueva. In the late afternoon we sat down on the nice terrace and enjoyed the plaza. We dronk some wine and ate a few pintxos. Great option in this area.

Not speaking Spanish, not knowing the local customs, we had a nice first Bilbao diner experience sitting at the counter of this small bar. Wine was ok, tapas were great, atmosphere was perfect.

Lovely pintxos bar with super friendly and helpful staff. Really good selection of pintxos. The tortilla are standout and a good range are offered, including the ham & manchego and the morcilla (black pudding) we tried. Both were excellent. The other pintxos are also excellent...More
