You need to arrive promptly at opening time to get a space at the bar or be prepared to wait along with everyone else. The wait is worth it though. Although it seems chaotic, there's a method to the madness and the food is mindblowingly...More

Jk - few smiles from the woman behind the bar. Still a fantastic experience, authentic pintxos experience with top-end food and drinks, with a low price. Easy to see why its crowded.

After good reviews on trip advisor, decided to give it a try! Had the Kebabs (pork ribs), risotto, and ravioli. The Kebabs were excellent. Tried local wine. Drinking cup was a bit unclean. Overall pretty good.
