This place was the best pintxos bar we visited by a long shot . It looks very old and authentic from the outside and inside, it is not particularly big but it gets extremely busy because the food is outstanding. The tortilla with onion is the best we have tasted , the fois was perfect and you must try the... More

My wife and I spent just a few hours in Pamplona on our way from San Sebastian to Barcelona. Although it was a little early for lunch, we stopped by Bar Gaucho as our search for a good restaurant was pointing this place at the heart of the old town. We found some of the tapas quite different than what... More

So good pintxos in here! It is just off Estafeta street and it isn't as expensive as the restaurants in that street. Every year I repeat the same place; Gaucho!

This is supposed to be one of the best "pinchos" (tapas) bar in Pamplona and it is surprising the wide variety of different creations they have. We enjoyed the experience a lot and tasted some excellent food!

In the heart of the old town, Bar Gaucho offers tapas that is a little different to that which is on offer in the other bars. Very popular with the locals, it can get very crowded so finding a seat can be tricky. If you do manage to, sit back and enjoy the entertainment watching a really professional team at... More

My favorite tapas was the Foie. Most of these are premade and re-heated. The Foie is made upon order. We had 5 pintxos and 2 wines and 2 waters and the total was 22 euros. Great price. Bar keep spoke a little English

I have gone around Pamplona for pintxos a year now and Gaucho is the one we always go back to. Never a pintxo which is boring and all are really well made. Naturally, you must try their foie - if you want a better one you will have to go to Sanse and even there you must get lucky. Service... More
