With Arab food and live shows, this restaurant has everything for those who want something different.
An exotic place for a different night.
If you get tired of the typical 'pintxos' (tapas) plus the Basque-Navarre cuisine and you want to try some different flavours, a great alternative is the Alsafir Arabic restaurant on the street named 'calle Castillo de Maya', which is a truly exotic place in the middle of Pamplona. Each Thursday, you can enjoy a dinner accompanied by a belly dance show, but it's in your interest to book a table for these Arabian nights, as the restaurant is always busy. They offer a tasting menu, which includes the 'Ensalada Alsafir' (Alsafir salad), couscous of lamb and brochettes, accompanied by the classic tea, without forgetting their menu that includes hummus with date and nut tajine. Although the prices justify the quality and the presentation of the dishes, there's always a more affordable option if you order a 'durum' (filled pita bread) at the bar with a plate for sharing.
