We just wanted a quick latte and a bite to eat. PERFECT.

The staff/owners were really friendly, the latte's were very good, my wife's chocolate pastry was perfect, and my breakfast pintxos were good. This was a perfect stop in the morning before a large sit down lunch. Thank you Oquendo.

We enjoyed Christmas 2014 at Oquendo so much that having decided to go to San Sebastian again in 2015 we telephoned in advance to book Christmas lunch. We were so pleased to be there. Marthe runs a very happy restaurant serving good food at a reasonable price. We popped back several times during our 10 day holiday and were always... More

As a family of 5 , we wanted to rest up before the rains really hit. The kitchens were not open until 6pm, but we came at around 4.30pm. That being said, friendly, english and spanish speaking waiter, with a lot of character and a smile for the "english". Simple foods, quiche and some much needed drinks all on offer... More

it was quite busy at the bar so we opted for table service - we were provided with menus and then ignored for about 15 mins until we went back to the bar to order food. Food itself was of okay quality but portion size was on the small side

Great food and great service😊 wonderful food, and a restaurant with atmosphere. Great choices, we were in the more formal dinner part, still not too formal. Highly recommend this place.

We had been wandering around looking for a non-pintxo restaurant where the children could eat. It was early evening. We went into Oquendo as a desperate measure and it turned out to be a good choice. A good variety of food both real and snacky. Good service too. We got in about 6:30 - early! By the time we left... More

The kitchen also served up the best ham and cheese toasts the kids ever had. A boon when travelling with tired hungry kids. Recommended

This was a good option for lunch (we had dishes with eggs which were quite tasty) and we also popped in for some dessert in the evening after we were feeling a bit "pintxod" out by going round the bars in the old town. It looks like it's a good option throughout the day (opens about 9am) and has lots... More

We could not find what we were looking for, so the owner put together a special meal, just for us. Wonderful food, great staff, good location and good value.
