What can be said that hasn't already. Fantastic value, fantastic staff. Yes it's hectic, yes there is nowhere to sit but I went with my seven year old son and he loved it. We went at 8 and it was full to the brim. Steak, toms and peppers with lots of wine ( and fizzy water for my son). Less... More

We went in the afternoon, had the meat and the tomatoes. The quality was good but for a small bar and no seats it was a bit pricey. Spent about 45euros for the two of us. Overall it was a good experience and we would recommend a visit.

Visited this bar back in March. We arrived just as the staff arrived to prepare for the evening ahead (one hour before opening for business) in order to get our name down and make sure we could be accommodated. I can only echo what has already been said. The tortilla was out of this World. When I first read that... More

Go here with an open mind and an open heart....... Get amongst the madness....get amongst the small-town feeling, the I've-been-here-every-night-for-the-last-twenty-years feeling, the I'm-a-local, I'll-have-whatever-you-recommend feeling.... This place is awsome. But...don't expect a sit-down-meal! Orders for their famous steaks won't be taken 'till after 8pm.......why? Because the freshly butchered beef arrives at 7:50! The bar opens at about 7:15ish where you... More

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.
