Cute place. Love the tile work. Pintxo selection and quality was good. Friendly staff. Stopped there twice during our visit to Bilbao.

This became our favourite bar or coffee stop. Great atmosphere early evening when the pintxos are piled high to encourage locals and tourists alike to pop in.

This place was incredible. We were able to get a table on Saturday night, you can only book a table for 8 or more so it’s just a case of turn up, drink and wait. But the wait is definitely worth it! The decor is...More
