Loved this place! Modern, innovative and beyond delicious! Understandably one of the busiest bars we visited - it's a real experience. There's no place for inhibitions, get stuck in and enjoy!

Like all the reviewers note, this place is delicious and very creative. They have so many options that it can be a bit overwhelming, especially when it's crowded. They will give you a plate, you load it up with the pintxos you want and they will take the plate and heat up the ones that need heating up and you... More

Returned to Bar Zeruko and impressed again by their innovative and creative approach to pinxtos. The food is outstanding and, of course, the atmosphere is superb.

On a repeat visit to San Sebastioan, and Zeruko remains firmly entrenched in our top ten favourites. Delectable fine aromas and delicate flavours in the Hoguera (bonfire) and the Anguilha Ahumada (smoked eel). The langoustine in katafi pastry is unusual but very good. The stuffed and fried artichoke hearts demand a second serving. The anchovies and txipiron mango were up... More

A ton of choices laid out so you can pick-out exactly the Pintxos you want. They were good but not great. We found the sauces they added, after selecting, distracted from the flavored. The staff was supper friendly & helpful. We order the fig & foie gras, sea urchin and scallops.

We ate tapas here in Oct, and having been in Barcelona, Blibao and Seville during this trip, these were some of the most interesting tapas we had! It is hopping all the time, many of the tapas they will heat up and it becomes even more interesting than what you are looking at. Lots of seafood options, they even had... More

Fantastic food whether you go for tapas or menu. Freshly prepared food and not left on bar top for ages. Very busy and difficult to find a seat unless you are early. Staff are so busy that they verge on the frantic at times.

Ok, I am a tourist too but still it is not that great an experience to enter a Basque bar to find the place heaving with British, Australians, Brazilians, Japanese, Chinese etc. But I presume that Zeruko is now appearing in the guidebooks and as a consequence is added to the must-go bars. Ok, so much for the complaints because... More
