Bar
“While visiting Pamplona, do not forget to see Estafeta Street and taste their Spanish tapas (here called 'pintxos' in Basque language). My favorite is 'Gaucho' established since 1970. Around this bar is a meeting point of all Americans who travel to San Fermin every year. But remember the first Festival days (July 5-9) bars and pubs will be crowded. There's so many people in the city this days.”

“All best restaurants in Pamplona offer to you traditional local dishes. But If you look for something special you can try at 'Alex Múgica' in the same hotel La Perla, where Ernest Hemingway was lodged. Here we are a typical Navarra food but twisted into the Nouvelle Cuisine similar style Ferra Adriá. Delicious! But remember that first Fiesta days (July 5-9) will be almost all booked. If you do not book in advance your best option is to eat and dinner at your hotel.”
