Loved the interior decoration, our waitress was very nice and helpful, they have a decent choice of pintxos and everything was good (wines as well, we were well advised), but we still felt a little disappointed... i think by reading all the great reviews we expected something more... but it's not the only pintxos place where we had this feeling...

Try the hoguera de bacalao for a touch of drama- pintxo of cod served on smouldering piece of charcoal - don't order too many at once or you will get smoked out of the place...

We came back to SAN Sebastian and wanted to revisit since we enjoyed our first visit. This time it was not as great. The burgers were a bit cold and also the quail tasted not necessarily fresh. It's definately not bad but unfortunately did not match our first experience.

We were literally chased out for not ordering fast enough in the empty dining room (where we had ordered a snack/racion and drinks and were considering our next plans). The owner took my wife's cider and moved it to the standing-room only bar area and demanded we move there or order at that moment with him almost yelling at us.... More

This pinchos bar presents food made to order. There are gourmet variations on classic tapas dishes. For instance, there is a "slider" on the menu, and there is a king crab dish, with ffrozen avocado and fennel flavored ice creams. Very creative combinations of flavors.

we had a reservation for a table in the back for the tasting menu. it.. did not deliver, which was a real shame to end our fantastic time in a culinary capital in such a way. there was nothing memorable to write home about (good bread?) and our waitress seemed quite focused on getting us out of there asap. as...

I wanted to love this place but just couldnt... I had high expectations for this place and it just did not deliver the goods. I felt that they were trying to be different with the flavour combinations for the sake of being different and it just didnt work for me...... Examples of this were overcooked octopus which was really really... More
