My friends took me to a bar for a mid-morning snack telling me it was one of the classic places of Pamplona, and they weren't wrong. A part of the decoration of the small local wood and many details, what stands for Bar Gaucho are your skewers, both for its variety and quality. The prepared foie, mushrooms and sardine are al tasty and fresh. A highly recommended stop for a rest. There's a terrace.
Seeking a place for breakfast we found Café Iruña in the plaza del castillo, where we strongly recommend the buttered toast on bimbo bread.
It will help give you strength throughout your travels around the most beautiful places in Pamplona. The place, beautiful!
This beautiful medieval looking building, which is a bar, was built in the 1960s. They used the remains of the Aguerre Palace during its construction. It was in New Street until it was destroyed in 1958 to make the Hotel Maisonnave. It also has decorative elements from other sources.
That is quite simply what I experienced recently in this restaurant a great dining experience, nothing more to it.
This multifunctional space that recreates in a modern way what was formerly known as a grocery store (i.e., a neighbourhood store that sold all kinds of foods and beverages) combines bar, restaurant, shop and warehouse.
The bar area is an ideal place to sample good tapas and rations in a truly welcoming atmosphere, in addition to an extensive wine list. A feeling that transports you to another era, to those antique neighbourhood shops where people gathered to talk in circles, etc...
However, if you really want to live an experience on a different level, I advise you pass through to the "Back Office", i.e. the restaurant. The decor is minimalist and elegant, creating a cosy feel, with a really evocative menu in which all dishes have a special touch.
The wine list is amazing, the longest I can remember seeing, with many designations of origin and classic Navarra wines. We chose a barrel-fermented white Navarre, from the Albret estate, very fresh and tasty, with a touch of oak that so well accompanies most dishes, particularly salads and fish.
With service in keeping with the standards of the restaurant, each dish is a surprise, full of content, quality and colour. Raw materials of the highest quality, clever and interesting flavour combinations and great care taken in decorating the dishes.
The goat cheese salad is spectacular. But if there was one thing that blew me away it was the grilled vegetables, a seemingly simple dish that because of the quality of its ingredients becomes a true delicacy filled with produce from the fertile garden of Ribera Navarra.
The roasted cod is served with the finest touch of Idiazabal cheese. But if I had to stick with something it’s the Orio style grilled turbot, clean, clean with a sofrito that gives it a unique flavour. To complete the piece, a dessert to share that will delight those with a sweet tooth, caramelized cream cheese with red fruits. A super dish to end the festivities in style. Delicious.
A quality locale, that without doubt is worth a visit so to pamper oneself whilst eating luxuriously in a very warm and friendly environment. A discovery which I highly recommend to all refined palates.
It is an amazing site, and not just for its beauty but also for its taste and tradition.The path of Estefata street is simply spectacular and the queues from the ships go out into the streets during most of the day, and this isn't a one off. If you like pasta and sweets then this is your store.
We tested several types of pinchos (which are bigger than a tapa) and they were delicious! Prices vary, they cost € 2 or so, but they are generous portions! We had four each and when we left we were stuffed!
The bar is modern, so do not expect something rustic, but we liked it! And there are many people, as in all bars, so you have to have a little patience. We recommend the chorizo skewer. Great cider!
Restaurant situated just behind the Hotel Maisonnave, but it is also accessible from the hotel. The care provided is great, the room is very elegant and the food is excellent. They have a terrific pasta dish, and their hake fillet was delicious; very tender and tasty. To finish for dessert I had the best french toast I've had in my life. We all took very good memories from this place. My most sincere congratulations!!
Really, when you enter the restaurant you're hit by its stunning decoration; it's a beautifully decorated place which has taken advantage of the old chapel. The service was correct and friendly, we expected something a bit better from the food, although it was good. It is true that the image of the chapel is a little confusing.
Throughout the year it's a quiet place on an otherwise busy street. But between the 6th and 14th of July, especially after the closure San Fermin the queues become so long they stretch out onto the pavement. They aren't as expensive as other famous sites in Pamplona and amply fulfill the role of a good breakfast offer. In addition, the girls ve serve you do not lose the smile despite the hundreds waiting to be served.
El Burgo de Navarreria, along with San Cernin and San Nicolas, joined together in 1423, leading to the birth of Pamplona. Today the Navarreria area is where you'll find the fountain into which tourists jump every year on the 6th of July, as well as parties every weekend during the year. The Mejilloneria, El Meson de Navarrería, and The Cordovilla and are some of the most famous traditional bars in the area. With the arrival of warm weather, everyone takes their drinks and tapas out to the street, creating a spectacular atmosphere.
If during your visit to Pamplona you want to enjoy the old part of the "bar hopping", which happens here, or you want to try some good wines or beers accompanied by some succulent "pintxos", you cannot miss the streets of San Nicolas and San Gregorio. St. Nicholas Street can be accessed from the Plaza del Castillo, the true heart of Pamplona. The street of San Gregorio is a continuation of St. Nicholas, St Nicholas Square is the only thing that separates these two streets. In this square you can enjoy the view of the church-fortress of the same name. Along these streets, on both sides, there are countless bars, taverns, pubs and restaurants with a very good atmosphere at virtually all hours of the day but especially midday, when people are having their aperitif or "vermouth", and evenings weekends. You can eat from bar to bar asking in each one of them for a drink and a tapa, of the many ve throng these local bars for snacks.
Cool! It is the best pizzeria in Pamplona, no doubt. In summer the terrace, although small, is very appealing. It's a pity that the beers are too small, but other than that, the quality : price ratio is great.
St. Nicholas Street begins at the church square with the same name and ends in Plaza del Castillo, Pamplona, with the Town Hall Square. Throughout St. Nicholas Street you'll find more than a dozen bars open throughout the day, offering traditional tapas, the best cuisine in miniature. One of these bars is the Otano, which on its upper floor also has a restaurant. The bar is awesome. I recommend the cheese skewers and Bassianus, although any other choice would also be equally delicious.
One of the best spots in Pamplona. Jaime, the owner, is a great professional and will make you feel right at home. I recommend the Mo burger (mini Kobe burger). I also tried the salmon sashimi, which was good, but I feel that everything here is.
In addition to some delicious mussels, they also have the best calamari sandwich in Pamplona, I also recommend trying the hot sauce. The patatas bravas are also very tasty. It is very lively when the weather is good and there is nothing like eating a sandwich and having a beer whilst siting (on the floor, of course) in Navarrería Square.
A different experience at lunchtime and their specialties are tables of meat with sauces and nachos with elaborate sauces. Fab place to eat with friends, you should ask about the amounts, but a "table" is probably enough for 4-5 people providing you get 1-2 dishes to pick at as well. Proof that a picture is worth a thousand words, I leave you with the image of one of the tables.
