“Best part of the Casco Viejo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

You have to go to the Plaza Nueva if you go to Casco Viejo. It was raining so we settled in to Restaurante Victor, and watched the world go by. It was lovely.

“Lovely spot for people watching and pintxos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Some of the best bars for pintxos can be found on this beautiful neo-classical square in the heart of the old town. Well worth spending an evening here. Café Bar Bilbao highly recommended!

“A little piece of History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Designed in the centre of the old part, as a meeting point for customers and sellers. Its a big square. In the old times the goods came by ship as the river is near and were exposed in this square. Nowadays is full of taverns and there are a few good place to try pintxos like "zugarramurdi" tavern.
