“Good food, nice view”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

It suffers from being a bit "Basel". i.e. it noramlly quite quiet (even though busy), but food is very good and view excellent.

“Excellent food and Atmosphere!”
Reviewed 19 December 2011

My partner and I stopped for a lunch of salad and beer. It was so good that we returned another day for the dinner. Dinner is the only time that they serve tapas. Usually, I don't like tapas, but this was great! The salad alone is worth the trip. The dressing is outstanding. It comes with a Spanish tortilla slice (?) with an interesting texture and flavor. The tapas offerings include an eggplant dish sliced very thin, crisp, and drizzled with a cheese sauce. Unusual and very tasty! The view is of the Rhein. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is easy to find and directly on a tram line. I wish I were there right now!

“Wonderful tapas, wonderful service”
Reviewed 3 December 2011

A lovely little surprise which made for a nice break from the traditional sausage, rosti, and general heavy food local the area. Wine was very expensive, but it seems that is common for Switzerland. A very nice little place.

“Fine for a drink and small talk”
Reviewed 30 November 2011

The atmosphere is well intended. Good tapas and drinks.
Might get loud sometimes but that's the Spanish warmth the space provides.

A (Swiss) colleague recommended I go to Don Pincho...I'm glad we did, it was a great surprise. Nice location with huge windows overlooking the Rhine, great tapas food, fun atmosphere and very welcoming, friendly service. A great night out!
