Great bar with " pintxos", you even get served to the street. Appetizers in the counter washed with beer and txakoli were fresh and tasty We tried artichokes combined with anchovies as first and the txipirones (squid) in black ink sauce combined with hake ( merluza), the hake alone was worth the dinner as a single dish. Very friendly and... More

Looking for something simple, tasty and well priced? Here's the place to go. Super fresh ingredients and simple dishes served in a friendly atmosphere. Freshest tomato and tuna salad I've come across, at great price of €9. Filet steak with pimentos and freshly fried potatoes chips €8. Nice glass of cava €3. We ate in the restaurant, but they also...

Our grasp of the language isn't great so we took a chance... More

The best place in San Sebastián for Pinxos -- amazing value great flavours and stunning value. Populated by locals well away from the touristy rip off of the old town.. Less than 4 euros for 2 glasses of wine and delicious Pinxos ... Made my stay in San Sebastián

Absolutely the best croquetas and tortilla I've ever had (and I've had a lot...). Bar staff really friendly and patient with our minimal spanish, lovely inexpensive wine, good music. Much more relaxed and personal than any of the bars in the old town. If you're in Ondaretta you should definitely go!
