Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

El Tubo is a very known neighbourhood in Zaragoza, where there are a lot of bars, restaurants and nightlife. We came here in the evening on Monday and up to 19h, there were a lot of people, so we could enjoy a lot eating some pintxos and drinking local wines. We walked around the streets and squares and we went to 4 bars: Gran café Zaragozano, Bodegas Almau, El champi zgz and Vinos Nicolás, which were good (a bit expensive some of them). A place, where you can go, if you want to know the nightlife in the city.

This is a wonderful, lively neighborhood. It’s actually a highlight from our entire trip to Spain. Don’t stay in one place too long. Order some thing small and bounce around from bar to bar enjoying the different tapas. We didn’t know what to order, or how to read a menu at Balcon and the waiter through his arms around us, and told us he would take care of us, and we ate like kings for very little money. If you are in Zaragoza, ask around to find out exactly where this district is and go have fun.

We especially enjoyed the egg/potato dish at EL BALCÓN DEL TUBO (best waiters!!). Don’t let the organized chaos for you. He will be fed, and have fresh drinks at your table within seconds. Extremely efficient.

We also really liked the mushroom tapas at El
Champi Zgz.

You’ll eat and drink well in El Tubo without spending a fortune. Loved it!

Indispensable if you travel to Zaragoza.
The best tapas from all over Spain gathered in a small redoubt of streets.

It's nice to get lost in these streets tasting any speciality.

Lively backstreets full of bars and restaurants, many have gardens.
Found this area to be always busy, if you like to see people, this is the perfect setting.

Don't get the appeal - it's great to see the small streets, eating/drinking options, but there are better plazas and tapas bars just outside the Old Town.

Have seen a number of such drinking areas and good to feel the vibe, so glad it's there but we stayed for a few drinks and neither the flavours, price nor appeal matched some of the other fun options available in this interesting city.

We had lunch here and it was great. There are plenty of places offering different options for food and drink, so there is something for everyone here. It can get crowded and loud, but it is all in good spirit. This is in the heart of the city, so don’t miss it when visiting Zaragoza.

Right in the heart of Zaragoza is this little maze of narrow pedestrianised streets, filled with tapas restaurants and bars, all of which have inside areas and tables outside for open air eating and drinking. It's beautiful, atmospheric and fun. Stay in one place all night or go bar hopping with a Tapa or Pintxo in every place.

Lovely old city centre district with lots of traditional tapas bars tucked away down narrow streets. Close to the main attractions.

It’s obviously the tourist centre, located right next to the main tourist sites. But at the same time, because real people live within the city, it’s very much for the local people, with small shops, theatre, little streets and bars. It’s easy to walk through and choose where you want to visit - too many options to give recommendations, and tastes differ.

Very atmospheric area to eat. Lots of hustle and bustle. Found a seat and enjoyed drinks and snacks.
