Pintchos!

I've spent three week in Donostia and I've been in several "Pintchos" restaurant in its old town. It's hard to named one above the others, but if I really have to pick up one or two places, this is one of them. Typical pintchos bar with great choice and amazing taste.

We had made a reservation, but when we arrived ten minutes late they had given our table to someone else, however, after ten minutes wait they had another table ready for us. The pintxos are a not your traditional ones, but a bit more experimental. We ordered chefs choice and got eight pintxos which overall were really good and things... More

Excellent modern pintxos. Staff were always ready to answer questions about the pintxos on display and there are items not on display that are also delicious so don't be afraid to ask for lobster toast or the DIY cod.

Very friendly staff, delicious and spectacularly beautiful tapas and super wine. We got in early and bagged a table, but still worth squeezing in of you can't get one. This is the sort of restaurant you travel to visit. We can to St Sebastian for the food and if we only went here, it would have made the trip worthwhile.... More

Bar Zeruko aims for the more "gastro" tapas rather than the traditional kind and is well worth an inclusion on any tapas tour. There is a wide variety available on the counter - some can be eaten cold but most are taken into the kitchen for cooking once selected - and a further selection available on the blackboard behind. Prices... More

Amazing selection of pintxos. Each one was so creative and intricately made. My favorite was a roast pepper with calamari and ham on toast. Every pintxo bar after this just seemed disappointing although if we had gone to this place last, I'm sure we would have thought that all of the pintxo bars were great.

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
