I would almost rate this place as the best pinxtos bar in San Sebastián. Each pinxto is warmed up and prepared delicately before being served. Their smoked cod and lobster pinxtos are highly recommended.

What an amazing introduction to pinchos! I am vegetarian so did a little research into the best pinchos bars in San Sebastián prior to going to Zeruko. It was recommended on many travel sites and by some locals. The staff are extremely friendly and don't mind speaking a little English if necessary. The food is presented beautifully and there are...

The number of tapas bars available in San Sebastian makes it incredibly difficult picking places to eat. It's a nice problem to have - but with limited time, you don't want to make a wrong decision! Bar Zeruko came highly recommended, so we thought we'd give it a try. It's quite a big bar compared to many of the bars... More

Bar Zeruko stands apart from the majority of San Sebastian's pinxtos bars, more modern looking with a cafeteria feel. The food reflects this, it's quite daring and deceptively delicate. We only stayed for 3 dishes as we we were bar hopping and I'd heard about the cod. It's served raw over a tiny smoker that infuses the fish with a... More

A rather small little tapas bar but the food did not disappoint. The servers were friendly and happy to help out by explaining how to select the food and what the more complicated dishes were. The tapas itself was delicious. Each dish was beautifully presented and the flavour combinations complimented eachother incredibly well. If you are hoping to sit to... More

Zeruko had some pretty amazing looking tapas but not all of them tasted as good as they looked. The exception was a large prawn wrapped in crunchy crisps which tasted even better than it looked (went back just for that). There was also a lobster and smoked cod which you have to order as they prepare it in the kitchen... More

The tapas were beautifully displayed but tasted very average. It was a nice alternative if you eat tapas often and are looking for something different but it is not the traditional spanish we were looking for. The food was perfectly edible but they were not the best tapas we had ever had. The only problems were that they said one... More

Amazing!!! The food is wonderful... One of the best meals I've ever had. The pinchos are so good that you just want to try everything and spend the whole day in the restaurant trying everything.

I ate nothing but drank like fish, bartender was kinda hot after a few jars, the toilets were a bit far from the bar when you've been over served

Bar Zeruko is a small tapas bar in the old town section, an easy walk from the harbor. They serve a fantastic selection of pinxtos that are delicious and creative. It's a fun place, and a little crazy when crowded. Definitely worth a visit - an experiment for your palate - so take some time and enjoy yourself by trying... More
