Very typical bar that serves mussels (as its name entails) in different forms, patatas bravas, and squid. Low prices and a good place to start a pintxos route through the center.
The pintxos at the bar are very good, but the ones that are prepared fresh are even better. We recommend the cod confit, croquettes, or the beef cheek.
A Fuego Negro
Located on Calle 31 de Agosto, this is more avant-garde than traditional. It attracts visitors that want to experience the pintxo in an alternative way. We recommend their black rabas, gilda, and makobe with chips.
Its specialty pintxo is the tortilla, although it is not always available. We recommend going at 13:00 or 20:00 before lunch or dinner to have the opportunity to try it.
La Cuchara de San Telmo
Elaborate pintxos of great quality. All are phenomenal but the grilled foie pintxo stands out.
Located in one of the corners of Plaza de la Constitución, this place stands out for its mushrooms with a touch of spice and its peppers stuffed with cod or meat.
Its specialty is mushrooms, so if you are a fan, this is your place.
The ideal place to end your pintxos route as the specialty here is its cheesecake. Many come for coffee and dessert but you will also find delicious pintxos.
