Wide variety of tapas, good coffee and very good beer in beautiful glasses. Tapas however should have been fresher.

My son and I went here for a late lunch after a busy morning. The restaurant was busy but we had to wait ages to order & about 45/50 minutes before our 4 plates of tapas arrived? despite neighbouring tables getting through a couple of courses in the time. Waiters avoided my eye completely & it wasn't until we stood... More

We stumbled in here hungry after arriving in Barcelona in the evening. Very busy, next to cathedral, we assumed the food would be mediocre and overpriced. The food was very very good and prices reasonable. Service a bit spotty though. We did not do the pintos bar, but it all looked good and cheap. Our wine was good too. Would... More

All but a few tapas were fish based- which is fine if that is your preference. There was little variety. Ordered a special tapa that did not come with the listed ingredients on the menu. Asked waiter and was told the menu was incorrect so basically I recived a fried shrimp tail on a piece of bread versus the listed... More

Bilbao Berria served up a wide offering of pintxos (tapas on toast) that are a visual delight and delicious too. They were reasonably priced and made for a perfect mid-afternoon snack.

The choice of pintxos is excellent, especially for those who prefer seafood. Fresh and delicious. Patatas bravas were crispy and savoury! The service is quick and discreet. However, mind 10% for sitting outside.

I like the place, the location is lovely, the service is good, its clean and all but about 90% is seafood. I personally dont eat seafood but my husband does so it was heaven for him. I had one little corner in the back that served non-seafood and one vegetarian tapa. I probably had like no more than 10 choices... More

I've been there twice and both times the food was good and tasty. The place is big and quite noisy but with a pleasant atmosphere. It is mainly self service which I like. Their large selection of fresh pinxtos are displayed on a large counter where you can choose whatever you like and take them to your table. A fresh... More

Food is not good. The restaurant downstairs looks like a retirement house. Unfriendly waiters. We don't recommend at all
