Packed out by locals all day and night, mostly partaking of drinks and fellowship. We found the pintxos rather plain and uninspiring. Very well located just behind La Brexta market, but did not succeed in enticing us in more than once. THE ROUTE : We personally researched and selected 5 of the most renowned Breakfast bars in San Sebastian (Bar... More

Food was very good, tried like 6 different pintxos and all of them were good. Octopus, salmon, Spanish tortilla, txangurro, txaka, zucchini… Txakoli wine is also very good. Only thing is you must eat standing but not bad thing.

This is a very good traditional pintxos (Basque version of tapas) bar/restaurant. Great selection of local and Spanish wines and ciders. Friendly staff.

I seem to have a thing with Bacalao but what can I say? It's amazing!!! This place is just in front of my hubs family home that is why breakfast is to this place everyday that we were there! They open really early unlike the other bars. Around 7am to be exact! I highly recommend!!!

We had noticed this bar for years but tried it for the first time last night. Had a few pintxos and a caña. Friendly service and relatively uncrowded.

This is a long-running, casual bar for locals operated by locals, but taking a touristy twist. It lies in a corner right in the middle of a pedestrianized crossroads, next to the fashionable marketplace, the Bretxa, and other local traditional clothing retailers. This frequently busy bar is visited by locals and tourists alike, specializing in delicious pintxos (bites, canapes) spreading... More

Okay so first in best dress, come early to get a spot in the tapas bar, there's an excellent vibe up there with chefs producing the finest most amazing looking tapas I have ever seen! We were unfortunate and had to sit down at the restaurant however we were still able to enjoy the tapas upstairs! The venue is really... More

Our first taste of pintxos was here. Delicious! This location is close to the market so they explained to us that's why we see more locals there than tourists. We figured if locals like it it must be good. And it sure was! Thr staff are friendly too.

Visited during a pinxtos tour. Looks touristy because of the coca cola sign but actually is mostly frequented by locals. Tiny inside so be prepared to stand and be up close with others. Had a lovely navarra rosado wine and a pintxo with goats cheese. Yummy.
