At Pintxada you’re spoilt for choice ~ Eat alfresco in the Square or cosy up in our Tarantino booths to share an elegant range of tapas and pintxos. They call it savouring a dozen heavenly flavours in one meal and that’s what we do at Pintxada.

We serve small plates of food, enjoyed over glasses of wine or vermut among friends in the evening or at lunchtime. This starter-sized creative concept for eating out is hugely popular in Europe and London. Its ancient culinary roots are tapas from Barcelona, pintxos from San Sebastian and cicchetti from Venice.


At Pintxada we offer a taste of Barcelona, San Sebastian and Venice together with wonderful South African wines and local craft beers. Peep into our open-plan kitchen to watch our wonderful chefs at work.

At Pintxada you can expect comfort, style and a taste of Spain. Our restaurant has been designed with you in mind. To achieve this, we commissioned award-wining designers from Egg Designs to create this beautiful bespoke restaurant.


From our op-art tiles to our brass lighting detail to our inviting hot-pink Tarantino booths contrasting boldly with our egg-yolk yellow leather tapas-bar chairs, we hope you feel warmly and most stylishly welcome.

We are proud of our beautiful bespoke rotisserie hand-picked by our chef on a visit to France. We love it so much we want you to enjoy our slowly roasted chickens and chorizo equally at home.

P.S. It’s pronounced: PIN-CHA-DA.
