    Pintxos with many choices look at the 2 sides of the bar! Enjoy with a copa of white wine or a natural sidra.

    Took a few aborted attempts to get here, but worth the effort. Quickly became my favourite in Bilbao. Such good pinchos. The kids rated it joint best tortilla in Spain (in a non-exhaustive test)

    Gets mega busy, but turnaround of tables is quite quick. Queue up for the terrace seats for less sweat, shoving and volume.

    Food was ok but service was very bad. They are not answer when you make a question. They are kind of disturbed by you

    For those who got tired of pintxos, try "special" salad and squid croquettes;) Don't forget a jar of sangria .

    Awesome!!! Better than Viña del Ensanche(viña Ensanche is more Posh)" and expensive). Txangurro and Atun Rojo a must with txakoli.

    Great, great, great. El Globo is my favorite among all pintxos bars after zealously trying more than 10 of those in Basque country.

    Strongly recommended: fungus small cake, txangurro mini-toast, gratin codfish. Go there before 11 pm if you want to taste it! Enjoy tasty pintxos in the city center!

    This modern place serves very inventive and succulent small bites. They call them pintxos here in the Basque country, as opposed to tapas in the rest of Spain. Pintxos are better. Read more

    Algo sobrevalorado. Su pincho estrella, txangurro gratinado, está rico pero muy pesado y grasiento. Además, los gratinados están fríos por dentro. El resto no tienen nada de especial.

    Pintxos buenísimos. Probé los de txangurro gratinado, sepia en su tinta gratinado, tartaleta de queso y queso fundido con foie.

    Al entrar ya tienes problemas para escoger qué tapa comer ! Al final después de mucho pensar optamos por un paquetito de pasta filo rellena de couscous y versuritas al curry que nos dejó sin palabras

    Bence karşısındaki bardan daha uygun fiyatlı ve sıcak bir yer. Çok tapas yemedik ama yediklerimiz güzeldi. Buraya daha fazla lokal geliyor sanki.
