You've just got to go. We had to wait ten mins to get standing space at the bar, but had a glass of Rioja while we were waiting. We ordered tomatoes, peppers, and of course, the steak. Tomatoes with olive oil and salt was outstanding, so simple but quality ingredients, and the steak was out of this world. A really... More

If there's one place you gonna eat in this town, make it here! You might have to wait a bit, but the service is excellent and they will remember that you're queuing. Have the tomatoes to your stake. It will be worth it!

No frills, small bar restaurant - no Menu - beef tomato salad in good olive oil - excellent. Grilled side of sirloin beef served on hot plate still cooking - excellent flavour - my wife needed it to be better done & that was no problem. Don't expect any comforts but the food and service is very good indeed. Because... More

This place was packed and for good reason. Not your traditional foodies paradise, but it was one of the best eating experiences I had in San Sebastián. Local craft beer topped off my experience. Best value for money steak in Europe...

The best steak that we had during our 4 week trip to 3 countries!!!! Not only is the steak and tomato salad to die for, but the owners are wonderful hosts!! We would have eaten there at least twice if only we had dined there earlier in the week.

A must if your in San Sebastián, steak was incredible. Found the small bar after reading the numerous reviews and was not disappointed. Order a small tomato salad to start and get the biggest steak you can.

Superb meat! looks like their only dish, but that is what I call a specialty! Have some Gildas for starters. Enjoy it with tomato salad and pimientos de guernica on the side. Beats the crowdy pintxos bas in Donostia.

If you go to San Sebastian, you have to go to Bar Nestor and try their txuleton, is just the best! But beware, it is HUGE so go hungry :) The tomato salad is a must, so divine. The atmosphere is unique, even Nestor who's inside cooking, comes out from time to time to say hi, such a nice place.

If you are a meat-eating, blood loving carnivore, you have to go. The meat is perfect, the peppers and tomatoes seal the deal. Good wine, no nonsense. We had an incredible time in San Sebastian and this was a highlight. Skip lunch and get ready.
