The tapas were mainly of the choose from the selection on display at the bar sort, not pre ordered as at for example Cucheria de San Telmo. Very good though, but not as good as good as San Telmo

My husband ate his favourite pinxtos here. For me it is was great as they had a gluten free menu which made it so easy without feeling annoying! Delicious, friendly! Can't wait to visit again tomorrow!

We had a chuleta and ox tail. Both were very well cooked, the waiters were really friendly but what really stood out to us was the delicios olive oil and bread. We'll come back try some fish dishes and pintxos.

Specialised in beef. You have to taste the "vaca vieja" steak (old beef). Don't miss it if you like beef steak. Be careful to order too much, better share salads some dishes. You have to book in advance, it's always full.
