Bar Nestor has limited capacity but if you are there on time you will enjoy an excellent and traditional gastronomic experience. Don't miss the chance to taste the tomatoes, the green peppers and of course the "txuleton" (T-bone). Totally a must in San Sebastián's old...More

You won’t regret eating here - only serves tomatoes, peppers and steaks. Only two tables and the rest eats standing on the bar. We went late in the evening around 10:40, and they still served us.

The beef was amazing. Ensure you have it medium rare or rare. Don’t let the hotplate sizzle away the meat. Leave it on its side while you devour the rest of the meat. The padrona were fantastic too. Definitely try this once at least.

This place is a must when visiting San Sebastián. The best thing is to arrive early to have a good place at the bar. It is famous because its owner makes two tortillas a day. To try it you must go through the restaurant one...More

Hands down one of the best steaks I've had in my life. The wait here may be long. We waited 1.5-2 hours just to stand and eat a steak at the bar. But it was worth every moment of the wait and will recommend the...More

Hi Jason Not sure that they are open at that time but if they are it would be the only time to get your group in. They really only have one table inside that would take that size which is always booked during normal times... More
