This old established Tapas Bar features in numerous periodicals and is well work a vist. Great old oak beams, half finished brick walls, truly excellent tapas selection and great wines. Cheaper than touristy squares etc and is a real experience. Tapas from 1.80 Euro and wine from 1.60 Euro a glass! And its all top end quality. Staff speak some English but just point at what you want, pay at the bar, and enjoy!!

This place is not just a pintxo-bar. It is THE pintxo-bar. "Pintxos" are typical Basque small appetisers, the local equivalent of Spanish well-known "tapas".
At Berton there is an amazing variety of pintxos, and the quality is amazing.
Best deal in the house: "grilled mushroom and alioli" for just 1 Euro.
Good fast service, good choice of beers and wines.
A must when in Bilbao.

Only had a drink and some pinxtos here but then what else would you do. Lovely selection of food and nice atmosphere I would have returned for more but simply didn't have time Certainly one to try

Our first experience of pintxos and not a bad place to start just after mid day on a Tuesday! I think we were trying to find the main square but Casco Viejo is a busy network of streets radiating from the Metro to the river side, fortunately we were tempted in by the displays visible through the doorway. Frustratingly I did not notice the wine menu board; so I think I was into the semi generic 'Red'. The first selections of olives and anchovies and cod(baccaloa) did not last long but it was no hardship to move along the bar for something else. I was please to see that we did not cause any more confusion when it came to paying, smiling and trying Spanish albeit in the wrong accent and dialect appeared to work. I had hoped to go back and get thorough the Riojas-fortunately we did find some alternative venues!
