Amazing value and yummy food! All the food is out on the counter so you can see if something looks good or not and there is an endless stream of different dishes to choose from coming out of the kitchen both hot and cold. It's self service so you just get up and take whatever you fancy back to your table and pay at the end for what you've had. At lunchtime it's £5 for three tapas style plates which actually was enough for me so it's brilliant value for the area.

Having lived in Spain I'm a huge fan of tapas and Pintxos and it's good to see it in London.

They all a huge variety of pintxos rotatiing all day and if you want something specific you can ask.

Huge fan of the sweet potato tortilla.

The concept is simple and extremely effective.  Pintxos, served buffet style.  The longer you stay, the more different offerings appear - and they all taste great.  From melted brie and foie gras mousse topped toast, to deep fried cheese balls, the food is quick, simple, impressive, and extremely tasty.  Fill your plate, head back to your seat, and once you're done, head back up for more.  At the end of the meal, they use the wooden sticks to work out how much food you ate.  First three sticks are a fiver at lunchtime.  My only criticism is that service is added automatically onto your bill, no matter how few of you are eating ... which I think is rather cheeky in a self-service restaurant!

Very good addition to London's growing tapas and now pintxos bars. Original and delicious pintxos, well priced and, but much smaller then its Spanish siblings. Room for improvement on the wine list, for a wine bar restricted choice of wine, wine regions and offered by glass.  


Excellent pintxos not tapas! Went there with friends after the cinema. We were looking for a place to eat on a Saturday night in Central London. Foolishly enough we hadn’t booked anywhere and we stumbled upon Pix who were very accommodating and found a place for us in a few minutes. We were totally wowed by the food. The pintxos counter kept on changing as different ones kept on coming from the kitchen and we were spoiled by the choice and quality. We went overboard and lost count how many we ate. All we know is that our glass with all the sticks from the different pintxos we had was full. We stopped eating when we literally could not have any more. We would have very gladly carried on as new pintxos kept on coming to the counter. The wine list was also impressive. We went for an Albariño white which enhanced the taste of the tapas we had. The atmosphere was cosy and intimate although a little loud. Wear very light clothing when you go as it is definitely very hot inside. Definitely will pay a visit again.

To eat exquisitely presented food served delicious cocktails by beautiful staff is the reason why I will be back with as many friends as I can gather. London's best kept secret but Mark my words this will not be for long. Favourite dish: Foie Gras mousse with pancetta, Brie and pistachio Favourite drink: hendricks dirty martini

Brilliant concept superbly executed. What an amazing place this is. No question whatsoever, Pix is one of the top twenty restaurants in Bateman St to open this year.
