Pamplona is slowly coming out of its shell, and little by little new restaurants are appearing to shake up the conservative dining scene in the Navarran capital.
One such place is the charming Bar Asador Katuzarra, located on Calle San Nicolás, probably the most vibrant street in Pamplona’s old town. This has become a fashionable place for tapas Basque-style: having a drink and a few pinchos standing at the bar. In its quiet dining room, there is also a sidreria-style menu, where steak reigns supreme.
We decided to go for the weekend menu which, for 25 Euros, gets you three courses. Starters included artichokes with jamón, salad and scrambled eggs with vegetables, and all were delicious. We weren’t so convinced by the mains: the hake was quite obviously reheated rather than fresh. Desserts and service were good, and we were offered a cork to take our leftover wine home.
If you go to Katuzarra for dinner, bear in mind that the kitchen opens quite late, from 9pm onwards.
