Stumbled upon this Pintxos bar by accident, but after a five day stay and numerous visits to various other establishments it soon became my favourite place for a bite to eat and a drink. Service is friendly and it is reasonably priced with a wide...More

Friendly staff, good service. Located in old town Bilbao. The pintxos served are delicious and innovative. Not wery traditional, but the best we tasted in Bilbao.

The old town is great and I think I'd choose here as my favourite pintxo joint. Great to look at, unusual combinations, taste fantastic. You can get good drinks or just a coffee. Love it.

We visit Irrintzi before dinner and it was a local festival period. What a great ambience we found there. The pintxos were very good and the service was super

Saw some negative reviews but I can't understand why. Simple place, great cheap drinks, lovely pinchos that are a little different than most places. Lively atmosphere and cheap.

Maybe we didn't arrive at the right time of day but pintxos looked unappetising (compared to other places we have visited) and were very limited. There was a gluten free menu, but nothing on that menu was available so we left.

We have been here three times, the start and end of a three week basque tour. The food is great, you never get the same. The prices are fair, the staff is friendly. What's not to like about this place?

Fluorescent lighting, no special decorations, we tried a few pinches. I didn't get what's so special, maybe we went at wrong time of the day. It was very quiet and so little people. Couldn't get the hype.
