The best and most recomended visiting the old part of the city is, without doubts, the cheese cake they make. I cant tell how many daily, but amazing taste and texture. I need the recipe please!!!

Even though I still don't understand why San Sebastian Cheesecake (Tarta de queso) has become more popular in our country than original city San Sebastian. Anyway we had the opportunity to try it in San Sebastian. La Viña is where the story begins. This little...cafe / bar in Donostia area of San Sebastian, is starting point of the dessert love of millions in Turkey. Let's talk about the legendary dessert: quite different from what we eat in Turkey and incomparably delicious. The quality of the cheese and oil are the basis of the difference. Well cooked, not too unburned and an incredibly light dessert. La Viña deserves praise for Tarta de Queso. €5 / per service. . Nedenini hala anlamasamda ülkemizde, ortaya çıktığı San Sebastian’dan daha fazla popüler olmuş San Sebastian Cheesecake (Tarta de queso)’i yerinde deneme fırsatımız oldu. La Viña, hikayenin başladığı yer. San Sebastian’in Donostia bölgesindeki bu küçük cafe/bar, Türkiye’de milyonların sevdiği tatlının çıkış noktası. Mekan hayli kalabalık ve oturma alanı kısıtlı. Gelelim efsanevi tatlıya: Türkiye’de yediklerimizden oldukça farklı ve çok daha lezzetli. Kullanılan peynirin ve yağın kalitesi farkın temelini oluştuyor. İyi pişmiş, dışı fazla yanmamış ve inanılmaz derecede hafif bir tatlı. La Viña, Tarta de Queso ile övgüyü hak ediyor. Porsiyonu €5.More

Great cheesecake. It was a busy night when I went, staff was patient with my usual fluster yet they were quick and efficient. I chose take away but hope to come back and sit down.

The most uncivilized service i’ve experienced until now. Taking into consideration that i always make sure to treat people nicely no matter what, i get what i give Not this time though, the person behind the bar (owner i assume by his attitude) was extremely...arrogant, making remarks about questions i asked about food to other customers right there while i was ordering. Behaving like a typical bully. Highly recommend NOT.More

We stopped for a bite late morning. I stood in the line for food, but the man behind the bar regarded me as invisible... he waited on every single one of the other customers -- several who were in the queue behind me -- before...he acknowledged my presence. I speak Spanish. I greeted him when we arrived. He had no reason to behave this way. When my order was finally taken, it was not brought to our table, as he did with other customers; I had to go and retrieve it from the bar after this man barked at us in a crude imitation English accent. Average food. There are few foreigners in town due to Covid-19 restrictions. With this kind of rude treatment, they will not be back anytime soon.More

We went here for the cheesecake but they had some other nice dishes like the potato tortilla and obligatory gilda. The staff were also very friendly.

As simple as it is, this is the best cheesecake ever. Makes the stuff they call cheesecake in North America seem like a dollar store pastry. And the other pintxos are great quality too. Always packed, but the chaos is well organized and the staff...somehow remain calm and friendly, except for the occasional line jumper. Well done! We went last September, but during this time of "social isolation" we found the La Vina cheesecake recipe and managed to make an acceptable version. Looking forward to trying the real version again some day!!!More
