It was extremely busy the night we visited. Too chaotic, too busy, staff had no time to explain the menu, we waited ages for a table at the back, not a relaxed atmosphere to eat food, the pintxos were good but it was not a pleasurable experience. I wouldn't go back.

We visited Zeruko twice in the past 24 hours. Yesterday, for dinner -- the place was very crowded and today for lunch. The pitxos are absolutely amazing. We loved the vegetables tempura, the lobster on toast, the figs, and the crepe with Salmon. All the dishes are superb. If you go at night, please be prepared that not all of... More

This pintxos bar rivals Michelin starred restaurants for its inventive creations. The award winning Bonfire and Lobster Rose are not to be missed.

Zeruco was one of the tapas restaurants that most me impressed . It is within the top 10 in Donostia. Creative, tasteful, amazing tapas and food presentation and excellent service. one of the pintxos I liked most was " Bacalao ahumado en su hoguera", not missed!

Bar Zeruko’s tasting menu was the perfect introduction to our culinary adventures in San Sebastian. Unlike most pintxo bars, there are a handful tables available for diners on a first-come first-serve basis. Making a reservation for their tasting menu guarantees you seating and personal service. While there is a bar full of gorgeous, pre-made pintxos and a menu for made-to-order... More

The best way to experience Zeruko's innovative pintxos is to relax, sit down and take your time choosing, learning and tasting. The place is so good that at peak times it gets really busy so none of the above are possible. It's much better to be there when quiet.

Delicious and beautiful selections - beyond the usual selections of pintxos. Try them all but I loved the lobster with dry ice that came in a shot glass and some watermelon juice. Lively bar atmosphere. Several gluten free offerings.
