Fantastic and friendly
Around 11 pm on a Saturday night, we walked around the area in search of dinner.  Prime dinnertime here, I am learning, is btwn 10 and 11 pm.  Pinxto bars start closing up shop around midnight, it seemed like. We walked in and there were ppl sitting at the bar and at the outdoor tables.  It wasnt overly crowded (like other bars we passed) but the lady said they were closing in 10 minutes. Fortunately we met an American.  She was visiting her friend, who lives here.  They were a huge help!   We ordered a few pinxtos and the lady offered to heat them up and we ate at the bar.  We got 2 beers too, which we learned we could take to go.  Open containers allowed, while walking around the city!  And tipping is not expected. The pinxtos were ok....  but I imagine they would taste better fresh versus when we ate them, just before they closed. This pinxto bar is known for putting fried quail eggs on their pinxtos.  We had a croquette, one with fried cheese and two with ham on them.  They were all tasty and made my hanger go away. One of the 2 women behind the bar spoke English.  We had no issues ordering (u can also order them to go). Would come back and try their food and drinks again, for sure!  The bars/restaurants are small (compared to American standards)... so be prepared to squeeze and be intimate with others at the bar, when ordering. This was our first eating experience in Bilbao.  Looking forward to exploring more tomorrow! This is my fiancee.  He looks like he could be from here, so people come up to him and start talking Spanish.....  but then they are surprised when he opens up his mouth and hears his very American and West Virginian accent.
I don’t understand why this place is rated so highly. Pintxos were mediocre, no ambiance, it feels like you’re in a cheap fastfood joint. There are much better places to get your food in Bilbao.
