    Some of the best pintxos in the city. Don't miss the tomato/bread/cheese mixture or the burrata with asparagus. Also; the prawn and cod were delicious. Wash it all down with a cold Txacoli.

    Recommended by the locals, our first stop in San Sebastián. They have an English menu, love the Minister's feet! So tender and juicy.. Everything we ordered us too good! Suckling pig, goat's cheese..

    Superb Michelin-star-level pintxos for very reasonable prices. It gets quite crowded, but that's the usual for amazing places like this.

    The tuna, the suckling pig, the bacalao ravioli, and probably the most perfectly cooked piece of foie gras you'll ever eat for € 3.90. Best pinxto bar in San Sebastián.

    Unlike most other spots, pintxos here are prepared to order. Less traditional and more experimental deliciousness with local produce. Get the ravioli with 'morcilla' (blood sausage)!

    Their risotto is delicious. We were hopping from place to place so we didn't get a chance to try everything else. The foie and veal cheek looked scrumptious.

    Really nice place for good pintxos ;) Love the foie, the carrillera de ternera, the cochinillo and the risotto. A little expsive but totally worth it!

    Oh my! The foie a la plancha is so good here. Also the veal cheek. Not very impressed with the risotto though.

    Definitively the things to order if you need to economise stomach space: veal cheeks, pigs' ears, foie gras, pork belly and then the octopus.

    Just the most amazing place - 2 people behind the bar, 2 in the (open) kitchen. Order the ribs, the foie, the polpo... All good, nothing bad.

    "This place makes a mean veal cheek. The bacalao and bonito were also delicious. Like Borda Berri you can't really go wrong with whatever is on the chalkboard." - Huffington Post

    Very crowded, very loud, but very very good. The grilled squid was amazing, and so was the cod. A place to return to.

    10/10 pinchos bar. The smaller this bar is, the better quality we get. Don't ever go away without tasting its delicious FOIE

    Very similar to Borda Berri. There are some differences like scallops and seafood. Also better service.
