“Great bar close to Guggenheim”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Lovely bar frequented by the locals. Dishes are written on a chalkboard, hence the name of the place. Pinxtos were good although nothing extraordinary. Wine and cava were excellent value for money.

“Pathetic”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Went here based solely on the rating on trip advisor. Very dissapointed.

No fish available (which was an issue as it comprises about 50% of menu and one of our party is a pescatarian. ) Offered tuna salad instead - which was basically tinned tuna doused in oil with some greasy peppers (€12). Croquettes were tasteless - better available in any pintxo bar in town. Finally, the ambience was poor- stark, super bright lighting- waiters mobile phone left ringing aloud incessantly near by for about 10 minutes !

Risotto was nice though, and the waiter was kind of gruff in a charming way! All in all- pretty disappointing. Really don't understand how this place got such high ratings!

“Great option for enjoying the real Bilbao!!!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

In the very centre of Bilbao, this restaurant with a recent new decoration offers all the options that any visitor should enjoy once visiting the new Bilbao... quality meals with local flavour, perfect space to live in all its essence a good wine and the clasical "pintxos",...

All with good prices and in a great ambience.

Don't lose the opportunity of living an Athletic's match inside... as this restaurant can also be transformated in the best local to live this authentic experience for anyone that want to enjoy the real Bilbao.

“Great!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

I have been told about this restaurant and I wanted to check out by myself. I really liked! Dishes are complet and, the menu varies and they have really good prices. Staff is very nice and the the location close to the Guggenheim musaum makes a very good option to have lunch , dinner, or either have a break with a good Pintxo!

I reallyy recomend this place!
