Pamplona Quick Review

Went to Pamplona last night for the first time. I live around the corner so I was hoping to make this into my own neighborhood tapas bar (something like Las Ramblas). We had the iberico and manchego cheese fritter which was good but nothing oustanding. We got the mixed olives and a crostini topped with chorizo and shrimp. Everything was just okay. But the service was terrible. We were practically the only ones sitting at the bar and it took the awkward bartender about 20 minutes to take our drink order. Then he couldn't even recommend a wine. Our food took a long time to come out and the olives, which were located behind the bar were not given to us after we finished our first 2 tapas. To make matters worse we ordered a 3rd dish that never actually came. Because the service was so bad and the food was overprice we left and finished up at a different restaurant.
