“Great find - definitely worth a visit!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

The place is tucked away but it's certainly worth looking for. The bar tender/owner helped us with our choices & talked us through the lovely pintxos. We were made to feel very welcomed & wholeheartedly recommend a visit here!

“Old Town Pintxos”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

This bar is a bit difficult to find in Old town, but worth the time. Its tiny with just a few pintxos to choose from, but all choices were delicious. The bartender, who speaks excellent English (a rare find in Bilbao) is from South America, and is very friendly.

“Simple, honest, tasty.”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Having sought this place out in the old village we were delighted to have such delicious food and good rosé. Incredibly cheap and the owner was super friendly and helpful. Goes to show how delicious food can be inexpensive. Great pinxtos, but don't go expecting a huge meal.

“Very Friendly, Small Place”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Nice, unpretentious tapas bar run by a very friendly, helpful owner. Reasonably priced. Great place to unwind. Tell the owner you swear by Trip Advisor and then let the chatting begin!

“Lovely "pintxos" in a very nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Sarkue is the place to ha a pintxo and a Rioja wine while you are wandering around the Casco Viejo. Nice place to make a stop and enjoy the beautiful miniatures they cook. I'd recommend the Tortilla de Patatas, though It is difficult to pick just one!!
