Initial impressions were that it was like any of the other (high quality) eateries in the old town but 2 steps in and you realise that this is no normal pintxos selection. A bustling bar and a busy couple of waitresses we couldn't work out how we were ever going to get served with a major language barrier but one dish ordered and the it was a case of point, smile and request (with at least a por favor and a gracias!) and the food kept on coming. From steak and foie gras to giant prawns with roe and foam to the smokey fish dish pictured complete with a test-tube with a bizarre green concoction it was an experience I won't quickly forget!

Modern flair, exceptional works of culinary art with flavours to match. Pintxos freshly prepared, staff happy to guide through wonderous assortment. The best Pintxos in town. €3 a piece & can be busy.

This is a modern Pinxtos bar with dishes and prices to go with that.
We went there as part of a pinxtos tour: a solo visit, even for 2, could rack up the €s.
Check out the dishes on the bar including the sea urchins, "ice cream" cones and Oreos - these ar all not what they seem.
We had La hoguera (The bonfire) is served on a small casserole topped with a metallic grid. Inside there is some smoky rosemary. The main ingrediente is half-smoked cod, that you can smoke as much as you want. To finish, a small test tube with a jus of vegetables.

I have to agree with most of the other reviewers, this place was great. the staff at our hotel recommended this pintxos bar. I wish I had my camera with me. as good as the pintxos were they looked even better. The were like modern artwork and delicious. The bartender was great in that he took time to explain to us what some of the pintxos were as you couldn't always tell what the ingredients were by looking at them. if I had to rate this place against the 6 or so other pintxos bars we went to this would be Numero Uno.

If you like modern style tapas this place is for you; food was amazing and the service was fantastic!! Be prepare to eat standing up as it is customary in all the pinxto places in SS, but when the food is this good, who cares
