Very disappointed with this pretentious kip - got great review in the Guardian and in the Timeout .pdf online - so what could go wrong? Arrived at 3:45 - manager behind bar pointed us toward sit-down area - extremely hostile waitress snapped during my order, that there was only 10 mins left on the cooks shift - same with my... More

We had the 14 dish tasting menu in which three dishes were edible. The rest was an horrible experience. One dish for example was raw marinated chicken. I was a little skeptical to try it in a place that had served brown edged sallad and popcorn? the dish before but I still took a bite. It tasted salt... The waitress... More

This place is really cool. Interior, employees and food all are cool. I had a few pinxos here one afternoon (Makcobe and t-bone popcorn salad both 10/10). We then reserved a table for the tasting menu the evening after. The tasting menu was good but a little disappointing after my initial experience. Everything was presented great and the idea of...

We had the rice with olives and seaweed, and it was outstanding. Quite a big portion too for the price. Would definitely go back!

I first visited this bar/restaurant 3 years ago and it was top of my list for a return visit once I had booked flights back to San Sebastián. It is an extremely cool bar but don't let that put you off. The food is fun and modern with quality and taste at its core. The mini burgers are the trademark... More

Visited this place last July and was so impressed with the first quick meal that came back a couple of nights later for the full menu. Every course was delicious ( except maybe Lambs brain which was just a bit too "out there" for me and my partner). The waitress who served us was excellent, very helpful and knowledgable about...

This is where I take my guests when they come to visit me in San Sebastian, because they do not make standard pintxos, they make art of every bite!

Slightly more expensive than your average cafes but lovely tapas. Funky and busy. Probably not worth the cost but the tapas all look so colourful and inviting. Very crowded - we don't like crowds, so we ate only 2-3 and left.

The ambiance and the decor are very nice, but thr food is horible. Go there to have a drink or two, but does not worth to try the food. There are many other good restaursnt arround.
