About

Pintxo in Montreal, Quebec, takes its name from a small slice of bread that is used in Spanish cuisine to hold another food item intended to deliver a burst of flavor to the diner. Chef Alonso Ortis brings traditional Spanish taste to the menu items at Pintxo, with appetizers like tartare de salm�n and revuelto de bakalo.

For mains, try the bacalao negro en salsa virgen or chulet�n de res. If you have a hearty appetite to bring to Pintxo, the menu d�gustation is sure to satisfy. It includes four pintxos (chef's choice) and your choice of a main dish (with the exception of the chulet�n de res).

I had really enjoyed this restaurant the first two times I went for a nice get together with a friend. The third time, the service was not as good. It had been stellar the first two occasions. I found this last time that the server was less attentive and not as helpful, which put a bit of a damper on the evening.

We had a lovely evening enjoying a variety of the pintxos (tapas). We chose our items randomly and included several of the evenings specials. All of which we found to be tasty and delicately seasoned.

One of the outstanding dishes of the evening was gazpacho made with strawberries and red peppers. It was a seasonal treat that married well the sweetness of the strawberries and with the more savory taste of the peppers, and, ending with mild but refreshing acidic finish.

Are only reservation was that the portions are small and some of dishes would have benefited by having an extra piece on them, because if you are sharing, it is always easier to divide even numbers by two than odd. Depending on your appetite, plan to order at least to ten pintxos, for two people to share. For desert, I had a poached pair, which was perfectly prepared and served with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and nut crumble.

Food was good, not all dishes great.
Octopus was not described as brined and cold.
Lobster tails were fresh, but had way too much butter.
Portion sizes were good overall, but waiter advised us into ordering much more than required.
2-3 tapas per person is more than enough. Not the 4 recommended.
Ask if dishes are cold or hot.
Expect a long drawn out dinner, with tapas dishes coming in progression, with few in parallel.

We sat outside w/a little rain & a delightful series of pintxos. Memories of San Sebastian, Spain. We never went inside so can't say whether that's as nice - or maybe even better.

The place is very small, but staff was very kind. Prices are quite reasonable. We shared 9 pintxos for 2 persons. Preparation and presentations were very fancy, but most of them were not impressive and some were outright disappointing. Our octopus was overcooked, even burned. For tapas aficionados, I would strongly recommend Taza Flores on du Parc instead.
