Brunch, Lunch, Dinner
Granted food is tasty but it is way over priced for the portion size. The uni panini is basically a breadstick. The shrimp fritters are two dinky pieces. The croquettes are like the size of a pinky.
Great food, drinks and DESSERTS!! Service fantastic
Underwhelming. House wine is mediocre but all you can really get without buying a bottle. Cocktails are sugary. Tapas are overpriced for their lack of creativity and flavor.
EQP is a tucked away tiny spot, a little hard to find, but a gem! Some of the good tapas and sangria I've had in the big apple; great for dating or a catch up with buds
El Doble, $12 If gussied-up, ethnicized burgers are rarely good, this is the Basque-inspired exception. It comes with Idiazábal cheese, pickled onions, cornichons, and “salsa especial.”
Delicious deviled eggs and pan con tomate, washed down with a pomada that packs a serious punch
Oh that uni sandwich
Cozy little wine bar
Nice vibe and a great stop for a glass of wine with cheese. The food is great, escpecially if you have the shrimps with parsley and lemon. 🍻🍺
The croquetas are the closest thing I've had to legit outside of Spain. Also, don't let the anchovy scare you from the queso fundido - it's delicious.
Amazing tapas to share! Get the octopus!
It's all amazing. Especially the paella dish!
Great drinks.. Get the horchata brandy freeze, boozy sweet and cool, they go down easy.. So pace yourself. Good bar nibbles..
Uni Panino is very good however it is 1.5" wide x 5" long. So it's a small plate.
This restaurant has a very "you're in Europe eating in someone's kitchen" vibe to it. The Picos y Taquitos, croquettes and Arroz Brut de Conejo are all incredibly flavorful.
Yes.... to it all
Very authentic tapas! Delicious tortilla española and croquetas. "Specials" rotate highlighting Spain's culinary regions. Genius!

Uni panini!!! Creamy uni with spicy mustard sauce on crunchy bread. What's not to love???
Delightful basque pinxtos (tapas). The fideuas and Uni sandwich are musts.
El doble or morcilla with eggs for brunch!
Alubiada de caritas, picos y taquitos (spreadable sausage w honey) and cheesy potatoes
Get the deviled eggs and fried potatoes.
I first came here in 2010 and it hasn't changed. It's a lively place with a very Spanish vibe. Absolutely must get the uni sandwich.
Impromptu Chelsea happy hour. #nyc #summer #happyhour #elquintopino #lovelife #sangria #tapas
Chef Alex Raij is one of our heros! Do not miss the Uni Panini or the Pringa Cubano! We also dream about the Gambas al Ajillo and the Garbanzos Fritos.
Alex Raij and Eder Montero, came up with the “uni panini,” easily one of the greatest sandwiches of the past decade.
The uni sandwich is what all the kids are talking about. I dig it.
Horchata frozen cocktail (!!) sounds like a winner, but I was a little underwhelmed. The garlic shrimp will more than make up for it tho.
It's cozy, but the food is out of this world. Perfect date spot to lean in close, share small plates and learn more about each other. Or go with girl friends and eat and drink your hearts out!
Great tapas and a cozy date spot.
Nice vibe and a great stop for a glass of wine with cheese. The food though is not fantastic and expensive for the really tiny portions.
The "bag of bacon" is sort of a cross between bacon and pork rinds. I order a second bag and ate it myself.
Basque tapas/pinxtos. From Eater: All of the tapas are worth trying, but make sure to order the uni panini, fideua, and braised tongue.
The Uni Panini is out of this world delicious... definitely one of the top 6 things to put in your mouth in NYC
Come early leave late
Eder Montero and Alex Raj recently expanded their Basque tapas parlor. All of the tapas are worth trying, but make sure to order the uni panini, fideua, and braised tongue. [Eater 38 Member]
uni panini, Lang Whitaker rec
Date vibes in the back but don't neglect the bar. Sweet staff with excellent recommendations...bravas and squid in its own ink owww owww
New dishes include dirty rice with rabbit, flash-fried shell-on shrimp, and soft scrambled eggs with sea anemone. Favorites from the old menu are still available, and they plan to serve lunch soon.
The tongue, soft scrambled eggs with anemone, and uni panini are all amazing- the anemone especially cooks up like a nice clam belly or sweetbread. Also, bet you can't say uni panini five times fast.
Don't sit at the bar unless you want a view of the kitchen (hint: microwave!). Can someone please buy them a curtain? Been coming here for three years and still an issue. Great cocktails though.
The pomadas are amazing. I will never tire of them!
Small, but great food. Try their frozen gin drink & patatas bravas.
Don't come in a group of more than two or three, because a) you won't be able to sit together and b) you won't want to share.
An excellent tapas joint; don't miss the uni sandwich or patatas bravas.
