On the Plaza de Castillo in the think of things, this café has a beautiful and large early 1900’s interior. In the back and off to the right from where you enter off the plaza is the Hemingway room/bar with full-sized statue of the man...More

We came for a breakfast on a Sunday morning so it was no surprise to find it fairly full. There is no ordering at the table and the few staff at the bar look severely over worked. Understandably, ordering took some time and collecting the...More

This place doesn't have to work hard for its popularity - it's got it all:history/location/beauty. Our only quibble was poor service. Could do better!

We had lunch here just because Hemingway supposedly used to hang out here. Located at the Plaza del Castillo, it looks great from the outside, at the floor of a beautiful building. The decorations inside are also very classy. It was a beautiful day so...More

First visted for breakfast when I feasted on a massive slice of tortilla, a montadito de jamon and a freshly squeezed oj for just 6 euros, then I went back in the afternoon for churros (off the menu and very kindly made especially for me)....More

We enjoyed an afternoon drink under the umbrellas in the town square. The interior is beautiful, as if from a movie, and the staff is friendly and efficient. Can't comment on the food, but the people watching and relaxation rating were very good.

This is a very attractive, classic café’. Great for a drink or a lunch. Excellent people watching. I don’t know how Ernest Hemingway found time to write. He seems to have spent most of his time in café’s and bars.

Spectacular interior with efficient service but not of the "hurry up" kind. Decent three course meal for about €16. Food good without being anything out of the ordinary. Wines reasonably priced. Nice outside area for fine weather providing lovely view over the city's main square.

Founded in 1888 by a group of locals, was the first settlement with electricity from Pamplona, "opened to the public on the eve of San Fermin by filling to the porches", say the Chronicles of the time followed year after year, and still is the meeting point of all the locals, and all those foreigners who want to see the local who became world famous writer Ernest Hemingway.
