Not somewhere that people would readily walk in to, we wandered in because it was so busy. Be ready to nudge your way to the bar and order. Very basic menu but they know what they are doing. Both calamari and mussels were delicious. Very...More

One of my absolute highlights in San Sebastián. For 3,6€ you will get a whole plate of your choice. Spend another 2€ and you will get a big beer (0,5). What more can you ask for?:)

They serve three main things : squids, mussels and fried potatoes (with mayonnaise + spicy sauce). Fresh produces and very tasty, one of my favorite places in Donostia.

Simple, almost hidden place specializing in mussels, but with great calamari as well. Very flavorful and fresh seafood for cheap. It is a stand up place with not a chair in the place. Fast service and giant beers on tap.
