Gaucho Review

A legendary address for tapeo (tapas grazing) and txikiteo (wine tippling), this small tavern serves some of the best tapas in Pamplona. Just off Plaza del Castillo, in the eye of the hurricane during San Fermín, there is a surprising sense of peace and quiet here, even as the fiesta spins out of control outside. Tapas range from the classical chistorra (spicy sausage) to contemporary creations such as the deconstructed vieira (scallop), an apt metaphor for Pamplona's blend of old and new.

    Gaucho Review

    Consistantly one of the best pintxos bars in the city and a favorite stop, but like all of the bars and taverns in the old city, the Bar Gaucho can only a limited menu during the fiesta. If you want to sample some of their excellent pintxos, and are planning on attending the fiesta, then you need to be there on or before the 5th of July. Expect a crowd anytime.
