Excellent assorted pintxos (tapas) with eggs, fish, spinach and cheese. Pintxos area also called pinchos, depending on what part of Spain you're in.

Delicious inventive tapas served with consummate efficiency by tireless staff -one Australian! Fun, busy environment. Cross section clientele which added to the relaxed mood. 9 drinks + 9 tapas for 46 euros. Would highly recommend.

Both the egg and the foie tapa were excelent. There is a discount on thursdays in almost all the bars in the old town.
