Typical pintxo bar with authentic atmosphere. We tried the famous octopus which was the best we had during our entire stay in Northen Spain! Would also recommend the risotto which is not what you would normally expect of a traditional risotto but which excellent as...well. Would definitely come back!More

We were recommended Borda Berri by a colleague from San Sebastian and it did not disappoint. It was packed to the brim during lunch time which resulted in us settling for a seat at the bar. The service ain't the best but they had an...English menu available and were prompt. We had the beef cheeks, risotto and pig's ears. Each dish were delicious and will not hesitate to recommend.More

The pork rib and the Tuna were both delicious. Wish we had more time and room in our stomachs to try more dishes.

Be sure to include this stop when pintxo bar hopping. But know ahead that every one of the seven items we called for, while each terrific and different from the next, was rich and over the top in its own way. Don't miss the Sopa...de Ajo (garlic soup)More

Best Crab Ravioli ever. We were lucky that were here for artichoke season - the artichoke with Mushroom was to die for. Highly recommended and well worth finding. The staff speak good English and there is a menu in English if you ask. No food...on the counter- everything is freshly prepared to order - you will not be disappointed.More

It was very crowded when we got here but I’m glad we squeezed in. We ordered wine and the veal cheek cooked in red wine for 6 hours. It was absolutely amazing. Just falls apart when you put your fork in to it. Super tasty...and worth the wait for a space.More

No reservations. It's a pintxos bar. Standing and eating. They are closed Mondays. Here's a tip: walk past the crowd of people at the entrance who always are there talking. Go to the back and face the bar. You may have... More
