It has an amazing selection of pintxos that are quite extraordinary. Other than that, it is a must to order the smoked cod fish which is absolutely amazing.

It's chaotic but cool. They bring a molecular twist to the pintxos.. I haven't tasted them all, but the ones I had were pretty tasty and spectacular.. Just make sure you don't hesitate to make your way to the bar and make eye contact with the bar person as soon as possible. ENjoy!

We enjoyed the variety and originality of the pinxhos! Crowded and hot though it was...it is certainly worth a stop for a small beer and sampling.

My wife and I spent three wonderful afternoons downing the great pintxos at this excellent restaurant/bar. We had tried others, but this place was by far the best, with an outstanding selection, some of which the staff took back to the kitchen to warm for you. Just a wonderful way to eat yourself through an afternoon. We will most certainly... More

After 4 days here and numerous pintxos bars visited , we have decided that this was our best . Get there as it opens and get done of the few tables. Many of the best grilled pintxos are by order and not on display so do your research first. Mid priced for the various pintxos places in town but from... More

Most of the tapas indeed very good, some exceptionally good. However, the room gets far too crowded and noisy to enjoy the food. Some of our orders got lost. Good value for money, but still, the atmosphere of chaos is not exactly civilized dining.

We ordered a few based on the visual extravaganza that lay before us but would recommend the tasting menu, based on what we saw on the table beside us, as we were a bit like children in a sweet shop and our choices weren't as coherent as the selection the tasting menu offered. Loved the smoked lobster and the Bob... More

The title says it all. If you are visiting San Sebastian, you MUST, MUST, MUST go here! I was actually a little bit disappointed in the San Sebastian food in general (probably because my expectations were sky-high), but this place exceeded any expectations I had. Gastronomic delights of modern pinxos - I would go again in a heartbeat.

Having been in Spain for two weeks already we wanted to try a twist on things. The adventurous take on tapas was welcome. In the end, though we liked it, it wasn't our favorite. The staff would tell us what things were sure enough, but were a little more curt and seemingly rushed than other places and the ambience of... More

BEST EVER! i loved it. The pintxos were very well presented with different types of food. There was plenty of seafood selections on display. But there are a few... More
