BAR & BISTRO From adventure in Basque country to a restaurant in Belgium, we serve world-food in pintxo portions. Curiosity is key to exploration in our bar & bistro! Our concept is inspired by Spanish food culture, but our chefs fuse foods from all around the globe, often seasoned with a Pintxos personal twist. Everything is fresh and home-made, seasonal and ever changing. THE KITCHEN Is open 12u till 22u. Pintxos is open thursday-friday-saturday-sunday. RESERVATIONS Alas we can not take reservations under 10 persons. We do apply fast service, tables come and go at a pace that makes your waiting time spent with a drink fly by like a non-intoxicated jet pilot. From 10 to 20 persons reservations
$11 - $33

A very nice restaurant, staff is very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We came at rush-hour which meant that we had to wait for approximately 45 minutes. This may seem long, but there was place at the bar, we started with an appetiser. We ordered "tafeltje dekje"...More

Because this restaurant is closed in the early part of the week, I have not visited with business, despite 18 months in Mechelen; they could certainly make more business trade by opening on a Wednesday. The atmosphere is nice and service good. You order at...More

This is a trendy hot spot during the weekends and the restaurant looks like an old warehouse which is much larger on the inside than the initial impression from the outside. We took the fresh soup, the chicken roll and fresh salmon with a mango...More

Based on the feedback of others we did not go for the 'tafeltje dek je' formula. We chose our tapa's piece per piece and were very happy with what we got. Good qualitative and tastefull food. Maybe the not cheapest tapa's but well worth it!

Food was delicious, but not worth the price. It all looks great, but nothing stands out enough for that price. It's all tapas styled dishes, which you have to pick yourself at the bar. After that they prepare it and bring it to your table....More
