Words are not very useful in this case. Great food! Great taste! Great visual experience. In fact, everything is just great about this place.

I made a visit here with my friend after seeing the great reviews on TA so I was expecting nothing less than leaving with a top notch experience! Having tasted fantastic pintxos in Bilbao, I was really excited to try out the pintxos in Saint Sebastián. Upon arrival, the bar was filled but not overly packed, food was beautifully displayed...

Was in San Sebastian for a few weeks. Obviously the food in this town is excellent...especially the pintxo's. Bar zeruko is definitely one of the better ones. Ate here several times, and each time it was great. Each time we asked the kids where they wanted to go, they would say zeruko's. Definitely worth a try.

This is the most impressive pintxos of the old town. They are very imaginative and delicious. Look at the blackboard to have some of the tapas cooked which are not on display on the bar buffet. The fillet steak with foie gras is an absolute must at a very good price.

This busy bar is very modern and popular among tourists. I went with several friends visiting SS for the first time. Of the 3-4 pintxos I tasted nothing was as good as it looked I'm sorry to say. I tried their salmorejo as sort of a baseline, having just had it in Cordova, Sevilla, and Granada. It was very disappointing... More

Take the pinxtos bbq fish or whatever it is called. Really good. Like all place it is very busy so high likelihood you end up standing like the rest.

We planned to go to this place but it was super crowded at our arrival so we went to the place next door which was not crowded. We were dissapointed by the pitxos so we decided to go back to Bar Zeruko and try the nicely designed tapas and they were definitely better. The only thing is that you don't... More

Our family recently spent a week in San Sebastián and ate most nights at the local pinxtos bars. Although Zeruko was always crowded, we passed it by at first because we didn't recognize most of the offerings and weren't sure what to order. With a little advice from our guide, though, we plunged in and were so glad we did.... More

Went here after reading excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. Order the mixed set menu (7 dishes); fish, meat, bread, dessert, wine. Must say we were disappointed. Especially since we had awesome, awesome pintxos at Zazpi. Ok, the dishes were like nothing we've tasted before. That's a plus (if you like to try new stuff). But, come on, spunge with squid ink?...
