As another TripAdvisor has said, the gentleman behind the bar gives delicious recommendations. We loved the seafood pintos, the green peppers a la plancha (they resembled Japanese Shishito green peppers), the shrimp toast. Will try the baby squid next time! We visited this place multiple times during our visit.

Great seafood pintxos here. Highly recommend the octopus, smoked salmon and blood pudding dishes. Ordering was a bit tricky at first as the owner did not speak a word of English but we managed by ordering by number per the menu. I would stop here again for 3-4 pintxos if in the area.

Buscheta Gamba x2, pulpo, and the #3 - baby squid... This place was absolutely ridiculous - very good and the main man running the bar will give you the proper recommendation... Enjoy!

There is no hiding in this small pinxtos bar. Not only are you elbow to elbow with your fellow customers, the lights are on full beam. So not ideal for a romantic hour or two but great for a helping or four of some classic pinxtos. We managed to get served with some nice cheap bites and even managed to... More

From the outside this bar didn't look that inviting however there were lots of people going in, including locals so we decided to give it a go. What a hidden gem! The staff were friendly, the menu on the wall was interactive and was able to change to other languages which was great when a Chinese couple came in who... More

We stopped here as our first stop on a pintxo crawl for lunch. The gambas were very tasty as had been recommended and I also decided to try the Mari Juli which again was delicious. 2 glasses of wine and 4 pintxos for less than 14 euros. Would definitely recommend.

Really friendly owner in this little bar that does lovely fresh seafood pinxtos/raciones. Clever menu on the wall as well - he flicks the screen between languages after working out which one you speak!
