About

Pintxo (pronounced peen-cho) is a Spanish Tapas Bar located in the heart of Belltown. Pintxo produces a vast array of small bites from traditional favorites to modern takes on the traditional dishes from various culinary regions of Spain, including San Sebastian, Barcelona and Madrid.

While a majority of the food is sourced locally, some ingredients such as the Spanish Cheeses and Jamon Iberico de Bellota (cured ham from the acorn fed Iberico pig) are frequently used to create the traditional dishes that have been made in Spain and Pais Vasco (Basque Country) for centuries.

The beverage menu features wine, liquor, beer and cider/cidra from Spain, additionally local wine and beer are also readily available and easily paired with Pintxo’s bold and flavorful food. Specializing in Spanish GinTonics and craft cocktails.

The dining room is large but intimate and features bar and table seating as well as Private Dining and a speakeasy style bar, Branchwater, located behind the restaurant.

Loved Pintxo!!!! Extremely friendly atmosphere. Wonderful ambiance and terrific service.
Opted for an array of tapas to share. Would have liked to order more but 5 items to share was more than enough for two. Have to go back to try more. Heard the paella was worth the 45 minute wait. Definitely going back. Bartender's were friendly and knowledgeable.
Thanks for the great dining experience.

Excellent meal. Flavorful, surprising, colorful, varied and well-prepared. Service was outstanding and the presentation was top-notch. Authentic, comfortable and welcoming. Had the bar set pretty high for the place as I’ve only heard good things and it was a special night - Pintxo blew us away. Fantastic experience - we will be back!

My husband and I went for dinner on Valentine’s Day. The service was great, the host was super friendly, our waiter took note of our allergies. The food was really good and had lots of variety. I am a vegetarian and had no problem finding plenty to eat. Overall one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I’ve had since moving to Seattle a year ago. I would gladly recommend!

We showed up early so the hostess directed us to the bourbon bar, what a wonderful surprise. Quite and dark with delicious drinks and comfy couches. The tapas and seafood paella were outstanding and our server was wonderful.

Went here for my girlfriend’s birthday. It’s a pretty restaurant and the food is REALLY good. I ordered several small plates to share and there wasn’t anything I didn’t love. Our waiter was very nice and patient. A few of the girls bailed super last minute and 2 of the guests were super late. I felt awful that we were tying up the table but the waiter was nice about it. Great experience. I’ll be back for the Brussels sprouts and bacon wrapped dates!!

As always Pintxo's did not disappoint. Great service from Ben, and the rest of the team. Great seafood paella, is worth the wait since it's created fresh per order. I spend quite a bit of time in Spain, and I can honestly say Pintxo's is as authentic as it gets.

Having been to several traditional Spanish restaurants, I give the following reviews:
The wine was MEH at best. Perhaps the bottles are better but the by the glass red and white were off label, bottom shelf wines that hardly harken to usual Spanish stalwart varietals. The house Tempranillo is more of a garnacha/Pinot noir. If you’re looking for a solid Tempranillo, go elsewhere. The albarino was yellow tail.
Tapas: not bad to pretty good. Decent for a date night or a snack at the bar if you’re solo.

We had three appetizers, two of which were absolutely terrible. The anchovi crustini was good but the liver pate thing and the croquettes were disgusting. Also the sangria was super watery and super crappy.

Overall a decently good tapas place with an extensive menu that should appeal to varying tastes. My one complaint is that for the price, the seafood paella didn’t have much seafood, especially considering it was for at least two people.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our date night at Pintxo. I had both the red and white sangrias, which were delicious. My husband’s gin and tonic was very refreshing. We had several tapas, all were delicious and perfectly seasoned. We had the tortilla española , the marinated manchego, patatas bravas, bacon wrapped dates, goat cheese toasts, and the mushrooms. I wish we had room for more, but were completely stuffed. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Lovely atmosphere. We’ll be back.

I will not return. Mostly because of the value. The food was passable, but for the prices it should be exquisit.
We were charged for 2 dishes not served. The beer was great.

My wife & I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary, & having just been to Barcelona, we decided to try Pinxto to kinda try & recreate some of our wonderful dining experiences In Spain. Pinxto was pretty good on its own - But it was not fair to compare. There’s nothing like the real deal.
