Wide selection

We spent Christmas Eve in San Sebastián and Zeruko was open for lunch. It has a wide selection of tapas. We tried 8 pintxos and all were great! The staff there were very friendly too.

Hopped 4 bars in Centro and here left me biggest impact. The pintxos on the bar counter are awesome but leave space of your stomach for raciones too.

We visited Bar Zeruko the first evening we arrived in San Sebastian having eaten a big lunch. Luckily we ate dinner late and had some room for some Pintxos here as they were outstanding. Every dish we tried was delicious and they were exceptional value - 4 pintxos and 2 glasses of wine for less than €20. If they have... More

Great service, great food! You have to admire the chefs of Bar Zeruko to be so creative! Simple ingredients but they manage to put them together and create a great harmony of the flavours! I went there in the early evening as a lone diner and had no difficulty to find a seat. Apparently if you go after 9pm the... More

My first visit to Donostia, Borda Berri was my favorite. My second visit, Bar Zeruko wins! We ended up going to Zeruko four times, and likely ate the entire menu. I know I ate my weight in foie gras. The first night was very difficult. The place was PACKED! With the bartenders working so quickly, it was hard (especially as... More

Best service, best choice of pintxos and best atmosphere. I took the recommendation of a Basque white wine which was the best to be had on our Spanish trip. This bar is a must do not miss a visit. The hardest thing is making a food choice and leaving to visit other bars.

Get there early to grab a table. The bar is piled high with the greatest assortment of pintxos you are likely to find anywhere. The staff are brilliant, extremely helpful to non-Spanish speakers and take time to explain how some of the pintxos need to be cooked. Yes, you have to do your own cooking with a few of the... More

Not only are the Tapas and real work of art here and a taste sensation but the atmosphere inside was buzzing, loud and really great to people watch. Of all the pinxhos bars I went in over the last few days this was the one for me

Stumbled in for lunch on our first day in San Seb. The best looking and tasting food we found over the week. Many of the pintxos tours visit here. Buzzy and crowded and if you don't like the crush try at a different time. It's a very simple ordering process: ask for a plate, pick whatever food you want, and... More

Pintxos were of high quality and beautifully presented. It's a bit crowded but for a reason. Some of the most reasonably priced best valued tapas we found in San Sebastien.
