Since this company is already rated rated #1 in the category, I don't think it's necessary to write too much except to say it's obviously excellent. I joined the Essentials of Pintxo cooking class. The facility is superb, the staff/chefs are extremely friendly & helpful, this class is very conversational and a lot of fun. The class & staff doesn't feel like they're following a strict script; they genuinely enjoy what they do and truly want to show you a good time and how to cook their local dishes. Amazing experience that I would highly recommend to anyone!
