During a recent trip to Donostia this was an absolute favorite. Loved the Chipiron alla Plancha and the Gambas. The server was great too! Loved everything about this place!

The txipirones (small squid which seem to be grilled in garlic butter with bread) here are shockingly tasty! I would recommend either those or the mambas (prawns), which seem to be very popular too! Try them with a local txakoli (local aperitif-type wine) and you will not be disappointed! The atmosphere is fun and the staff efficient! I plan to... More

Must get the Brocheta de Gamba!!!! Most of the Pintxos bars have the pintxos out on display and everyone browses around. This place is small and quaint has moderate selection of food on display, but they also have a menu. The Brocheta de Gamba is not on display, but it is a MUST HAVE! If you like shrimp, you will...

Good pintxos. Their speciality is a prawn skewer you order and have freshly fried and seasoned. Good meat skewers are also available. We also tried some mushrooms and crab. Nice, but failed to make a big impression.

This restaurant did a roaring trade, very small compact bar with fab gambas, lovely red wine & good atmosphere. We went back each of the nights we were there which is a good sign.

Have the prawns and you will be very happy indeed. Have it with a nice refreshing glass of Txakoli and it's a perfect place to go before moving onto the next pintxo bar. Good times!

A simple pintxo (mari juli) but nearly perfect, slice of bread, slice of roasted padron, slice of salmon, a fresh anchovy with a drizzle of tomato garnish was so good not only did I have it several times each visit, but I visited 2/day for several days. I hope it is still there if I can make it back.

You don't always expect it to be as good the second time round. After all, 18 months had passed since my last visit. I shouldn't have had concerns. It was perfect. We stayed across the road in some apartments. I thought I'd surprise my daughter who was still getting ready so I popped in and got her a takeaway portion... More

Good little pintxos bar. Try the gambas and croquetas. Both the food and wine are reasonable priced.

Great place, the best pintxos were the gamba, morcilla and pintxo moruno. Everything cooked at the moment. Good atmosphere and nice staff!
