Would help with a smile! They do not accept card less than 20 euro and they couldn't tell where to get cash :-(

This used to be my favourite pintxos bar in San Sebastian. The Makobe burger is still one of my favourite ever dishes but the Basque chicken dish came with uncooked chicken, not a good sign.

We had lunch here and ordered 6 pintxos expecting it to be enough for 2 people. The only half decent one was the mini burger, however the other 5 were pretty poor. We had one which was some type of crab meat and it was literally 3 tiny pieces of meat on a shell... Another popcorn/steak salad was literally 10... More

I normally eat medium/raw steak, but every pintxos we ordered here was literally raw, even the chicken(!) An extremely disappointing experience.

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
