I had a dinner with my wife. It took about 15-minute walk from my hotel located in the center of the old town. This bar had a menu with color pictures and it was very convenient for us to order the meals. We ordered around 10 small meals and most of them, both of cold and warm plate, were very... More

We heard that Bar Bergara was one of the best places for pintxos in San Sebastian, so we went there twice for dinner during our stay in Gros. There was a large array of pintxos on the menu (and on display in the bar), so we were spoiled for choice. You get a plate and help yourself to the cold... More

Everytime I go to sanse, I insist on going bergara for aperitivo before each meal. Their most amazing pintxos are the hot ones you have to order from the bar. Txalupa (mushrooms with Bechamel with a topping of crispy cheese) is so amazingly good I could eat it everyday. My next favourite is the Viera (scallop). My bf's favourite is... More

This was my first foray into Pintxos in San Sebastián. I was so in for a treat. Everything was fresh and tasty. Could believe my first mouthful. Wine was great too. It was a little crowded and a small space, but that just added to the atmosphere. The gentleman behind the bar was very helpful and friendly. Loved the way... More

When you go walking around in the heart of Donostia/San Sebastian looking for good pinchos and a fun place to be, don't miss Bergara Bar, one of the best in town. Even though San Sebastian and its surroundings is the most restaurant starred location in Spain, I can't spend a day there without going from bar to bar tasting all... More

A friend recommended this place to us, it is not in the main / old town, it is across the bridge in the residential area, so a bit of a walk. Pinxtos was extremely tasty, not cheap, but definitely worth it.

Our first introduction to pintxos and what an excellent choice,turned out to be the best of our trip. Is located in a residential district and you tend to find less tourists here.About 10 minutes walk from the river. The sdevice is superb and the barman explained to us clearly how it works. It's self service and you use the plate... More

This place was recommended to use by a lady in reception at our hotel, she even recommended what we should eat. We had Txopito, Udabari and Txalua all great dishes, not the cheapest place, but quality worth paying for. Staff very helpful too.

We loved Gros, and we also loved Bar Bergara, even though we only had a few pintxos and a couple of txacolìs. But, although few in number, we could tell that the quality of the pintxos was above average. The one with foie gras was truely excellent. How can one tell if the pintxos are of a good quality one...

Nothing more to add: they have the best pintxos in Donostia. The cold ones are really creative, completely different for what you may find the (touristic) Casco viejo. What about the hot ones? Forget all those pintxos wormed in the microwave: here you have to order them and you will have cooked for you. You cannot miss them!
