I’m visiting the city for five years for one week and Borda Berri is still our favorite place. The quality is always great and therefore we have to go there at least once a day to taste something from there menu. Next to the constant quality of the food the service is also a constant factor and it is a... More

This was the best pinxtos we had during our trip to San Sebastian& I would HIGHLY recommend it. All dishes were of a very high standard& were cooked on the spot. Definitely one not to miss. The queue at the door at opening time showed how popular the place was!

All I can say is this was one of the best restaurants I have been to so far! It’s much more than a pinxto bar. The food was exceptional and service was impeccable. It would be unfair to mention about just few dishes, but I can’t stop raving about the Pork ribs, Gazpacho soup and the Mushroom rice. Pork ribs... More

A must try when visiting San Sebastian. Do not miss the chance to try costillas, risotto, pulpo or carrilera pintxos. Be patient, and wait for your turn. It is worth the wait.

Borda Berri is typical more than a typical pintxos restaurant. You have to work for your food, fight for your food. Of course "fighting" in the means of making your way to the bar and if you manage to find a place to stand there and have your food in front of you, you are lucky. If you find 2... More

Brilliant meat and mixed taps. Slightly more upmarket yet still very good prices. The entrecôte & duck are special. We have visited many recommendations and this is up there. It's feels chatioic but the staff are well prepared and make you feel comfortable. Get there early as dishes run out. Wine ok but food amazing. Definitely worth the find.
