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

We showed up here during lunch and were wowed by the presentation of the pintxos. The food appeared gorgeous and imaginative, so we were really excited to get our feet wet. Unfortunately, ALL of the pintxos tasted like they had been sitting out for a long time-- everything from fish to chorizo was soggy. The quality was terrible. I'm very... More

Bar Zeruko had the most imaginative pintxos I saw in the old part of town. Wonderful combination of flavors and textures. More seating than most bars.

Zeruko has the most imaginative pinchos in the old town. The variety is inspiring - from fresh sea food to tasty goat cheese. Always crowded, but the best places are.

We went to a lot of pintxo bars while in SSB, and while this place is VERY touristy, the food is worth the crowds. Try going to lunch just so you can sit down and enjoy the food. You really miss out on the full effect by just having a few of the bites - you'll want more!
