“A hidden gem in Pamplona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

We came across this lovely meson while walking from the citadel to the cathedral along the city walls. It is a traditional building in a beautiful location overlooking the surrounding countryside and it was very quiet the day we were there. We had lunch there - the portions were quite large so if you have been used to pintxo bars then remember the portions are larger for raciones. The service was very good but the bar wasn't busy. Would definitely recommend this for anyone doing the city wall walk or in the cathedral area.

“Average not anything more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

I visited this restaurant on the back of it's stellar tripadvisor reviews. I wouldn't say it's bad but it's not brilliant. There is a nice view from the terrace area and it was atmospheric but the food was among the best of the pinxtos places available in Pamplona. Worth a look but be aware that you are paying a premium over other better places.

“Amazing view, excellent tapas, so peaceful and quiet !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

The Meson del Caballo Blanco is a hidden gem near the Cathedral de Santa Maria Real. Please take the time to find this beautiful spot ! The tapas were fresh and wonderful. The view was magnificent and it was so peaceful and quiet. It is like you are sitting on top of Pamplona ! All you can hear are the birds and you get a great breeze up there. Don't miss this beautiful place !

“great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

It is in the old part of the city over the stone city walls and overlooking the outskirts of Pamplona. You can enjoy the peace and quiet in this beautiful spot sorrounded by history. and have a nice coffee or a beer at the same time. Worth it!
