    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.

    One of the best in SS, get the seared foie and the crispy suckling pig. If you want more, grab Iberian ham and the risotto as well!

    Fucking fantastic. Seared foie gras, crispy suckling pig, "tomato" roasted with Iberian ham and cheese. Really, just eat everything.

    The sweet breads stood out, but everything we had was stellar. Sit down for half or full portions, stand up inside for tapas and the daily specials. Get there when they open at 8pm. Busy!

    Bad news- you have to fight for your food, good news - the food is worth fighting for. If you're not into this stand-up-n-eat-tapas thing, there're some tables outside. I fell in love with their squid

    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 top 3 items (tough choice): veal cheeks, duck ravioli, suckling pig. Drinks: sidra y Rioja.

    This was an expirience! The food was on a different level. No pinxchos at the bar. Suckling pig, octopus and risotto were heaven. Came for early dinner (7:30).

    The best food we had in San Sebastián. It's a little corner, full of people and full of amazing dishes. Worth the wait, definitely!

    All the hot pintxos are delicious ! Meat and foie gras perfectly cooked. Try to get a seat at the 2 big terrace tables and they call your name when order ready:-)

    Hard to order for your food and find a spot to eat it. Keep in mind that it worths the struggle; veal cheeks is amazing!!

    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.

    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.

    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)!

    Probably one of the best tapas restaurant in the city! The tomato salad and the pulpo were memorable!

    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.

    Highlights include the foie gras and veal cheeks. Tiny spot tucked away in the heart of the action.

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

    "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

    Tapas here are excellent especially their octopus & squid. Half portions are big enough to be shared by 4.

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

    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.

    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.

    Two words: veal cheek. Melty as hell and one's never enough. The foie is pretty damn fine too...
