Basque cuisine at its best

Beautifully presented delicious pintxos, coupled with cidre. Our favorite place in SS.. Reasonably priced too, 30€ got us 10 pintxos and 2 glasses of cidre (enough for a light lunch for two). Slightly touristic but don't let that put you off.

Fantastic, modern (bordering on post-modern) pintxos. Everything was beautifully presented but it was incredibly crowded. Try and go early as it opens at 7pm. A nice touch is that they represent you with the selections you made at the bar as individual serves, and reheat the items that are best served that way. That does mean that it takes a... More

A different take on tapa & pintxos - Modern place packed to the rafters with plates that you won't see anywhere else in the city. Exciting concepts that really work and give theatre to the place. The salt cod that you smoke yourself was fantastic. Go and see !!

Go. You won't regret it. Try the hot. Try the cold. Amazing presentation. Slick service. The only problem is getting through the crowds to get in.

This crowded bar with modern interieur is located in the the heart of Donostia just 2 minutes from the Plaza Constitution. Everybody is having a different opinion or preference when it comes to taste, but what you'll find at Zeruko is perfect in its optical presentation, combination of flavour and surprising texture! My friends and me had the opportunity to... More

A truly creative and extraordinary food adventure; best pintxos for originality and variety. We loved the solomillo y foie. Delicious food and great fun for foodies. Just a taste or full-on feast; up to you.

We visited Zeruko, a pintxos bar, during a food walking tour of San Sebastian ("San Sebastian Food" reviewed separately) there is so much food I can't go into all of it but the lobster on a smoking tower of rose water was great as was the sea urchin. The place was heaving (personal space does not exist in Pintxos bars)... More

The pintxos were best in San Sebastian. The personnel very kind and considerate also towards foreigners, who did'nt know the pintxos-culture.

Great pintxos bar, it was our favourite and we went back a couple of times. Not traditional pintxos - very modern and experimental. All of our dishes were excellent and beautifully presented. The bar was able to cater for gluten free diet (coeliac) by advising on suitable pintxos options.

We decided to take the degustation menu in this Pintxos bar. This was one of my best food experiences in my life. The Pintxos were very varied and they ably catered for a pescatarian in our group. This was a memorable food experience. Can only be described as superb
