In a sea of pintxos this was one of our favourites. Its small with a casual atmosphere that lends itself to chatting with strangers. The service was really friendly and we enjoyed snacks from the bar and also ordering from the menu, which is helpfully written in multiple languages including english. The best gambas a la plancha.

One of my favourite pintxo bars in Donostia San Sebastián. The pintxos are fresh and tasty, and the white wine is decent too. The house red wine is disappointing however. The place is small and crowded, with no seating, but has a great atmosphere.

We came here following a recommendation to try the brocheta de gambas (fresh cooked prawn topped with red pepper sauce) and it didn't disappoint. Simple but delicious.

This was our first stop on our Pintox tour, they cooked some delicious Pinctox to order, but strangely nowhere to sit down?

We had some very disappointing tapas: the albondigas (meatballs) were tasteless and the mushroom wrapped in bacon wasn't any better as the bacon was overcooked and almost tooth-breaking. It's a small place without a lot of atmosphere. Walk on, there are better places in Donostia!

With the distinctively colored blue lcd menu(in english as well), there is no doubt that "tourists are very much welcome" here! However, where many other similar places abuse this, this pintxos bar does not compromise on its food! We liked the several fish pintxos and padron peppers. The garlic gambas was a bit too small and not particularly spectacular! Apart... More

We were advised by our hotel concierge to start our tapas evening here , this was by far the worst bar we visited . It is small , has a limited amount of pinxtos and the speciality prawn skewer was not particularly good . Walk on and there are so many more great busy bars .

In the old town of San Sebastian, this little pintxos bar is absolutely one of the best. Seafood a la plancha with exotic flavors and wonderful tastes will wow you. The staff is amiable, fun, and always cracking jokes. We had a great experience.

A tiny bar, with an open kitchen so you can see your order being cooked. Prawns and Morcillas are two of the specialities here , but our favourite is the freshly fried green peppers. Also €2.30 for a glass of Alberihno is fantastic value.

We were recommended to this Tapas bar by our B&B host. The Tapas were really delicious. The Gambas de Bruschetta (prawns skewer with bread), Tartaleta de hongos (mushrooms tarts), tartaleta de txangurro (crab tarts), and Caldo de Pescado (Fish Soup) were all great! The small bar was really crowded when we went.
