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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Not much sport but great pintxos! Had the pork cheek stew, liver on toast and sea urchin (which I’d never tried before). Great place.

Great pintxo bar with excellent service from a team of friendly and helpful staff. We visited several times over the week and the highlights were definitely the beef cheeks and the solomillo steak. Drinks and food were very fairly priced and the vibe was very...good. A definite place to stop off on any pintxo trail around the old town.More

Txakoli wine again - this time with a recommended mushroom pintxo chosen from a very large selection - in a popular bar where I was lucky to find a table. This was another stop on the routine pintxo/tapas route where you can spread a dining...experience over half a dozen such bars.

We were recommended to this place by our hotel front desk staff as the best place to go for pintxos, but we were warned table reservations are not taken, and that because it gets very busy, if we wanted a table, we might have to...wait a while. That was indeed sound advice. We got there to find total mayhem. To say the place was “very lively” would come nowhere near close. People standing up to eight deep, along the full length of the counter, perfectly happy to eat and drink standing up. The same outside into the street. Unbelievably, we managed to bag one of the tables, as one became available at the very moment we walked in….there are only five tables in the whole place, so how lucky was that. The menu has an English section, so it was easy to follow. We were immediately attended to by Marco…..an incredibly efficient staff member, sharp as mustard, who assisted us with ordering some delicious morsels, such as the squid, the savoury meatballs, the pardon peppers, the baked cod, the anchovy on tomato, the foie gras, and the absolutely astonishingly good sea urchin….a first for me. All washed down with local cider. An incredible experience…..a great chance for a foreign visitor to meet and mix with the locals, who it has to be said, are the most friendly and helpful people you will find anywhere…..I urge you to try this place out….but be warned, it will be a pretty intense experience…..😀 Go visit the place, you will then see why this place is so rightly regarded by the locals…..More
