Outstandingly creative and delicious pinchos. IT changes all the time. Recently we had a taco de bonito which came with a lucious orange and green sauce ; carrillera de ternera (cheek) in a wine sauce was great too. Eat everything and anything here though, it will be good. The menu changes all the time.

So busy though yummy tapas! fresh cooked to order, get there early as by 10:00 they are out of a lot of the dishes! the gazpacho is amazing!! Octopus delish also. We didn't get to indulge in the risotto as it was all gone and this was at 9:30pm If you don't like crowds then this isn't for you though... More

Had the pleasure to visit here as a result of a tv programme. Place is small, so be prepared to be squashed during busy times. We did lunch.....just before end of service...so it was less busy. Food was just great.....be brave and sample some 'different' dishes.... Well worth a visit.

This place has the most delicious food, but IMHO it's too busy to really be able to enjoy it. But do go and eat here...it's worth the hassle. Everything on the menu is outstanding! Check for their hours and show up early, that's probably the best technique.

We were introduced to Borda Berri through our San Sebastian food tour. The food there was so amazing we went back the next day and got exactly the same things (gazpacho and risotto). So yummy! So sad that it's so far from our home in California!

We'd heard about this place before arriving to San Sebastian and are so happy we tried it our first night.. We didn't arrive until 10:45 and almost half the menu was already sold out for the night.. so for that reason, get there early. We tried 6 dishes and each was incredible.. it was really crowded but the service is... More

Amazing tapas! Try the Foie Gras, Veal and the Kebab style ribs all considered perfection. It's hot in the bar with little air conditioning but nothing a glass of sangria can't fix. The service is average but feel for the staff they have to serve so many people at the same time. Food is perfection nothing else matters.

What a great cafe/restaurant. Without a doubt the best pinxtos of San Sebastián. You need to be patient to enjoy some great food, but you simply need to do it and experience the different tastes. What we can recommend; Risotto, kebab and entrecôte. Further advise; the place opens at 19:30 so if you are smart you be a bit earlier... More
