A no frills gem

We went in here as there seemed to be a lot of old, locals in which we always consider a good sign. Far more rough & ready than some of the more salubrious San Sebastian bars - paper littering the floor, noisy, bustling - but the food was as good, if not better, than many of them. And probably... read more

Interested to visit this bar as it always seems busy. Inside it's as if time as stood still, I imagine that this is how most of the Pinchos bars used to be.It looked like the bar staff had grown up behind the bar. They have a great variety of Pinchos at very reasonable prices and a good selection of Rioja.... More

For those wanting a Basque tapas (or pintxos) experience Bar Gorriti has it all. Great food, great atmosphere, great staff and authentic. You cannot do better - definitely a must when in San Sebastian.

We ended up eating at Bar Gorriti 3 different times... and yes it was totally worth it! Each time we tried different tapas and each time they were delicious. Bar Gorriti is right in the same square as La Bretxa market so it's hard to miss. It's a small space, but shimmy your way up to the counter. The staff... More

Small joint located right at the start of the old town if you're coming from the river, no thrills place with cold beer and good food.

Seeing as everyone was raving about their pintxos, it only seemed fair to make a visit. We were greeted by a crowd of Spanish men behind the bar, all friendly who handed us plates. There was a huge variety of flavours from sandwiches, seafood and cheeses. We waited until 8pm to go and eat (as that was recommended on TA)... More

This little bar is easy to walk past, but it's well worth a visit as the bar literally groans with lovely dishes. Some of the pinxtos have won local awards and they are served up with pride. The deep fried artichoke was fantastic and all of the anchovy dishes were great. It's not a fancy place, but is extremely friendly... More

If you only have time for one Pintxo bar in San Sebastian, then this should be it! A visit to this charming, but slightly scruffy bar just outside the Bretxa Market in San Sebastian will give you the opportunity to taste some very good pintxos and good but cheap wine. The pintxos were varied and so tasty that there was... More
