Come for a meal right after seeing Plaza Nueva. The Spanish menu attracts people looking for positive impressions. Enjoy mouthwatering pintxos, ox and ribeye that are proposed at this bar. Nothing can be better than ordering perfectly cooked torrijas, gelato and yogurt. Delicious txakoli, beer or white wine are among the most often ordered drinks at La Olla. This place is known for good cortado.

This place is well known for its great service and friendly staff, that is always ready to help you. Here you will pay attractive prices. At this spot, guests can enjoy the quiet ambiance and divine decor. But google users rated this bar and it didn't earn a high rating.

Yep, this place was excellent.  And busy!   Huge selection of pinxtos.  It's a wide space with an L shaped bar and cold pinxtos covering every possible surface.  The chuleta is really good and rare.  The puff pastry around mini sausages made me smile -- a higher end version of the crescent rolls and hot dog appetizer I grew up with.  I had some sort of crab dish that was great.   The only miss for me was the bacalao (cod) al pil pil -- fishy and kinda boring.   Service was great.   I was impressed that a relatively small number of wait staff kept track of so many orders and customers.
Loved, loved, loved this place.  We sat outside and had a delicious selection of pintxos.  Totally recommend this bar along with the other five star places I have reviewed in Plaza Nueva. Don't miss trying this bar.  See the photos and you can tell the difference between this bar and others.  THey have some exotic looking food and it is priced right.
After walking almost 200 steps down to the main square, a girl needs some wine and pintxos! I have been to Bilbao several times and had made the rounds of the well rated bars like Gure Toki and El Globo, but La Olla really takes the cake for me. It was only 2 euros per pintxo and the bar had plenty of room to pick and choose which you wanted, without feeling rushed (like Gure Toki). I enjoyed practicing my Spanish with the wait staff and it was a lovely place to spend solo for a good hour or so. They had so many dishes that were constantly rotating. Some of my favorites included the octopus salad, squid bruschetta, "pigs in a blanket", and peppers. It was truly a delicious meal, and if in Bilbao again, it will be the first on my list to return to.
