Good sidra, tasty pinchos and a fun sidra pouring contraption. Also very reasonably priced. Definitely worth a stop in while walking around town.

Stopped in here for lunch as we liked the look of the pinxos on the bar. They were excellent as was the local wine and at €2 a Pinxos and same for a glass of wine it was super value. Nice buzz with locals chatting away.

Called in for a cider and some pinchos after walking around the town. Good selection of pinchos reasonably priced and very tasty cider which comes with its own pourer. bar man was helpful and he made some fantastic G&Ts for a couple who came in later. Had to rush otherwise we would have had one as well. Worth a stop.

Took us a little while to work out what to do as we had never eaten pinchos before and were not sure what people were drinking. Soon got the hang of it and loved the vibrant atmosphere. You just point at the food you fancy and at what others were drinking. The cider proved to be good and the food... More

Had a quick drink but no food - there were a few flies about so we were put off but it did look delicious aside from that! The cider pouring contraption was good fun - we drank the bottle within minutes by shooting sips!

Been here a couple of times now. It's few thrills, which is just as it should be. Bottle of Asturian cider costs €4.50, though you will be expected to pay a tad extra if you want the staff to pour it, complete with the over-the-side-of-head-not-looking technique. Food, pinchos on the counter plus a small kitchen menu, available.

Always looked appealing so we popped in for some pinxos for breakfast. They were very nice, and seemed reasonably priced, served with good coffee and hot chocolate for the kids. Spoiled a little by being overcharged for the pinxos, which they quickly corrected and refunded when I drew the waiters attention to it. I like to think it was a... More

Impressively acrobatic barman pouring cider from over his head, relaxed vibe, spectacular array of tapas laid out on the bar. Lots of tourists eating there.
