You know it's going to be great food when it only serves steak, padron peppers and tomato salad. The dining experience at Bar Nestor was super memorable. We walked in at about 8:20pm (naturally the place was already packed to the rafter), gave our name...More

I can't even put into words how special this place is. If I could go back to San Sebastian and eat at one place this would be it. No competition, no second thoughts. Their menu is small but they have mastered each and every dish....More

Make sure you line up early before the restaurant opens at either lunch or dinner. To avoid disappointment when inside you need to give your name to the guy behind the bar for one of the much sort after “16 slices” of the delicious potato...More

This place doesn't have a menu, they only serve peppers, tomato salad, some cheese and STEAK. Need I say more. A place that specializes in one item is bound to get it right. They have very few tables so be prepared to eat standing up...More

This is the best steak I’ve ever had, period. Had it the second night too and it was just as good. It’s the quality of the meat and the way they prepare and cook it. A fantastic value and would go back to San Sebastián...More

A very different type of bar, no pintxos or tapas. You grab a place at the bar, or one of the 8 seats at 2 tables. Choose your piece of meat... they are big! You are then offered tortilla as a starter. Then you have...More

The signup list is very confusing. Not sure what you're really signing up for. Turns out it's for a piece of their supposedly famous tortilla which has limited quantity. They make one huge tortilla (one for lunch and another for dinner) and carve out 16...More
