Enjoyable moment at this unpretentious place, where you just go to the bar and pick the plates that you like.
Correct wine choice (though not outstanding). Friendly staff although no foreign language spoken at all.

There are a big variety of tapas to choose and all looks very delicious. Dont miss the "pan con tomate", its not on the menu but dont hesitate to ask. Also try the tortilla. The prices are ok and the mood is laid back.

Busy with a Tapas bar downstairs and a Basque Restaurant upstairs. Like most popular places in Madrid very busy but everything is fresh and great atmosphere.

I've traveled to Spain, in various regions, 5 times now. I have not eaten pinxos in San Sebastián, but I was impressed with this place. The items on the bar were varied (not all variations of ham and cheese either), and they circulated fresh items or hot items like croquettes from the kitchen regularly. The concept is brilliant! You take what you want and they count up the bill by the number of toothpicks on your plate. Kind of like a Japanese kaitan sushi restaurant. We were there early, around 9 and were lucky enough to have a table. The owner/manager approached us in English and that made it even more comfortable.

I would describe each of the items I ate, but the are really unique and it would take a short paragraph for each.

Try it, you'll like it!

A little way out of the Busy and noisy Gran Via tourist area, and without any pretention, you can find this friendly tapas place. One has to understand how it functions: get in, get a plate, help yourselves to the tapas at the counter or wait for the hot ones that the waiters will proposed. Once you finish eating, bring your plate to the cashier. Your bill will be based on the number of toothpicks (about 2 euros each) you have (stemming from the tapas you picked) and the wine you choose (excellent selection of wines as well). It is busy, noisy but friendly and adds to the experience. An a la carte menu is available upstairs, but go with the flow and stay down, enjoy the tapas and the company!
