I decided to go here since there were good review on TripAdvisor. The place was located near the main church of San Sebastian in the old town. It was a pretty spacious space, but only eating at the bar standing. There were no seats. They...More

Very simple premise! Walk in, find some space, look at the big pics on the walls (varieties of mussels or calamari), point and order and eat! The food was so tasty and again great value for money! It was very busy in the evenings so...More

Deliciously uncomplicated place serving just mussels and calamari, mastered to perfection. You have the option to let your calamari have its final swim in a equally delicious homemade 'bravo' sauce.

This is a very well known pinxtos bar specialising in mussels and lives up to its reputation. It is not particularly large and as is the case in many of these pinxtos bars, it is mainly standing only. Well worth a visit

We just ate a few of the many varieties of mussel dishes, tossing the shells on the floor as is the custom. Each choice was delicious. Fun place!

If you are looking for a quick cheap bite, you can go here. The muscles, patatas and calamares were nice, although for me it would've been better if the sauce was next to the meal, because it was a little much for me. The service...More
