    We found this restaurant through reviews on TripAdvisor. We are visiting Bilbao, but do not speak much spanish. Thankfully the waitress very helpful and patient with us; she spoke a little english. The owner was very friendly and spoke english fairly well. Food was great and the staff was attentive. We would highly recommend. We made a reservation for a table, but could have easily walked in and stood at the bar to eat and drink.

    Bar El Globo offers the most amazing pinxthos and tapas. It’s no wonder they are one of the best in Spain according to visitors from all over Spain. We did let the waiter choose our dish and that was a great choise

    This place was mainly recommended as a pinxtos bar but we sat outside and had the tapas which were also excellent and reasonably priced. Great wine selection too and unbeatable service. Would love to go back next time we're in Bilbao!

    Very good and original pintxos, friendly staff, good prices :) I liked in particular the pintxo with Morcilla and peanuts, and the one with crab au gratin

    Faboulous taste, very creative, typical basque food in warm atmosphere. Of course it is noisy as everyone is laughing. I recommend

    We reservated the table two weeks before and... it worked (without confirmation) - really impressing. The Pintxos (Tapas) and Wine are delicious! Very special! Very different, friendly & nice guests!
