“Eat as you like - and have great fun in the process”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

No vacation to Fuengirola is complete without a night at Pintxos.

It's a fun and very affordable way to have tapas. The idea is that the waiters circulate plates full of Tapas between the tables and if you like something you simply pick it up. Each tapas has a stick which you keep and by the end of the meal the sticks are counted and you pay for what you took.

For a non-spanish speaking Dane like me then I get an unique chance to see what I order before I grap it.... fun, easy and very cousy.

The quality of the food is avarage, but given the concept and the very friendly staff then it deserves good ratings.... I will for sure come back - again and again .. :)

“A good place to try different variety of tapas”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

This place has been around for almost good 10 years. We have come here every now and then with family and on weekends, finding a table can be difficult.
The variety is very wide so you can sit enjoy a sip some nice red wine while the waiters bring a tray with different small dishes each time and rotate. You might want to sit close to the entrance of the bar area when if you want to popular dishes. Being at the end, popular dishes tend to be empty by the time it comes to the terrace area.
The prices are reasonable. For each tapas (or plastic sword that mark the cost of the tapa), you can be full with 6 or 7, which is about 9-10€ per person.
I like coming here when I don't what to eat and decide as they come around with different things to tempt and tease my eyes.

“1st Stop for Tapas Lovers”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

Tucked away on one of the side streets this is with out a doubt my favourite Tapas Bar in Fuengirola.

As soon as you arrive you are made feel very welcome and put at ease by the staff. If you choose to say yes to "Tapas?" very soon the waiter is brining tray after tray of offerings. Each one is explained in either English or Spanish and there is no pressure to choose straight away. Hot offerings are also brought round or you can order from the menu board outside.

Each item is between €1 and €4 which gives you plenty of choice and value. Be sure to keep the cocktail sticks though as this is how you are charged!!!

We had two lunches here and chose then to return one evening for our dinner. Sitting outside, chatting over a bottle of wine with little snacks being brought to your table was just heaven.

1st stop on any trip to Fuengirola in future.
