Expert review of Lizarran

Excellent Basque-style tapas on one of Girona’s main squares.

I’m not normally a fan of franchised restaurants or bars but this is a rare case where I’m happy to make an exception. I first discovered the Basque chain Lizarran in Barcelona and their tapas and pintxos/montaditos (different food combinations literally mounted on small pieces of baguette-style bread) are really very good indeed.

Food and drink: 

The Basques are famous for their tapas and pintxos and there’s a great selection from tortilla (Spanish omelette) with green peppers, chicken wings, prawns, patatas bravas and jamon iberico.

Ambience: 

This isn’t a place to spend to leisurely spend an evening. It’s a lively, modern bar and can get crowded on weekend evenings so you stand or sit at the bar, have your tapas or montaditos and move on to the next bar.

Service: 

The staff are young and helpful although you might have to wait a while, like any bar really, at weekend evenings and peak times.

Location: 

It's under the cloisters of the main Plaça Independència square.

Price advice: 

Montaditos cost 1.55 euros each.

Other useful branches: 

There are Lizarran franchises in Barcelona and numerous other cities, including New York and Los Angeles - see the website for details.
