“lives up to the hype!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

if you're pintxo bar hopping in Bilbao, Gure Toki is a must! We had the foie and mushroom risotto, which were excellent! The hot pintxos are made to order (not displayed on the counter like the others) and listed on a blackboard. They are very reasonably priced at 3,25 euros each.

“Interesting and delicious pintxos”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

It is quite difficult to get good pintxos in Bilbao. In fact, too much of it is disgusting. Often it's mostly a huge chunk of bread and not much else. Gure Toki is way ahead - delicious, different food and fast, excellent service. We had beers and all we could eat and it was about 15 euros each. There is a big area outside with chairs and tables which is actually outside another restaurant so make sure you look for the sign saying Gure Toki in the square to the right as you walk out of the restaurant.

“Incredible pintxos”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Why are you still reading this review? go to Gure Toki NOW. It has without doubt the best pintxos in Bilbao. Exquisite key presented,, incredible taste, and served with a smile. The pintxos on the bar are great - saltcod, stuffed squid, jamon of course, quails egg and cheese soup. But don't forget to order from the board too. We tried the ostrich carpaccio. Amazing. Even if you can't read the board just pick something randomly. It will be delicious, I promise!

“A great surprise for pintxos...”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We were agreably surprised by this tiny pintxos bar located in the old town of Bilbao!

Until now, the pintxos we had were a little too fat and simple cooking...But we were impressed by the fine food they served, creative, and the price wasn't that high!

I'd recommend:

- SOPA DE IDIAZABAL (mushroom soup with a small boiled-egg, trust me that's good)
- COSTILLA DE VACA CON ALGAS (beef with green japanese seaweed, the meat is incredibly "soft", it melts in mouth. You have to order it as it's a hot pintxo)
- LANGOSTINO

We didn't try all the hot pintxo, but I think the best is to ask directly to the waiter what he would recommend.
It was definitely the best finest food we had during the whole trip in Spain! Do not hesitate a second to choose this one instead of an other!
