We were literally chased out for not ordering fast enough in the empty dining room (where we had ordered a snack/racion and drinks and were considering our next plans). The owner took my wife's cider and moved it to the standing-room only bar area and demanded we move there or order at that moment with him almost yelling at us.... More

This pinchos bar presents food made to order. There are gourmet variations on classic tapas dishes. For instance, there is a "slider" on the menu, and there is a king crab dish, with ffrozen avocado and fennel flavored ice creams. Very creative combinations of flavors.

I wanted to love this place but just couldnt... I had high expectations for this place and it just did not deliver the goods. I felt that they were trying to be different with the flavour combinations for the sake of being different and it just didnt work for me...... Examples of this were overcooked octopus which was really really... More

We booked a table for 6, for my boyfriends 30th and our waitress was fantastic, she served each and every course to us (as well as the rest of the dinners without cracking... More

If you don't mind waiting around for an hour for 2 pintxos and a glass of wine, including 30 min to try and pay, then come here - otherwise stay away!
