This is a small bar with a terrace on the Plaza Nueva. In the late afternoon we sat down on the nice terrace and enjoyed the plaza. We dronk some wine and ate a few pintxos. Great option in this area.

My old friend Teresa that, since 30 years, prepares me a wonderful tortilla each time I visit her, will certainly disagree: here at Zaharra, I just had the best tortilla you can imagine. A little restaurant, with some dehors table and very few toddlers inside,...More

Lovely pintxos bar with super friendly and helpful staff. Really good selection of pintxos. The tortilla are standout and a good range are offered, including the ham & manchego and the morcilla (black pudding) we tried. Both were excellent. The other pintxos are also excellent...More
