This bar near the market was packed out with locals when we arrived. There was a good selection of tapas/pintxos on offer - nothing fancy but really cheap & tasty. The bar seemed to work on the traditional honesty system to calculate your bill.

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
