Tinto's Chef Menu

We have reservations at Tinto in a couple of weeks and I wondered if it would be better to get the tasting menu or to just pick anything? Any suggestions/previous experiences?

    My husband and I got the chef's tasting menu since everything on the menu looked so good and we could not decide. Especially with just 2 people, it's hard to try a lot of dishes. All of the dishes from the chef's tasting menu were delicious and was a ton of food. If we return, I'll skip the chef's tasting menu and just order a few dishes.

        A must get - the Piquillos Rellenos - crab stuffed peppers - to die for. All of the cheese and cured meats are wonderful. No matter what you order you won't be disappointed.

          I was just there last night and some standouts were the bocadillos de salmon, montaditos de pato (duck), and montaditos de panceta (pork belly). I'd also recommend getting the mixto of charcuterie.

            We have been often just so we can try everything on the menu. We always have a craving for Arroz Bomba.

            We consider it the best cuisine in the area. In parallel, the wine selection is very exceptional and unique. Especially the Irouleguy and the lowly rated Txakolina.
