Loved this place. The bartenders were friendly, the pintxos were plentiful, and of good quality. I especially enjoyed the fried peppers (made upon order), and the classic San Sebastian tapa with the red pepper stuffed with fish on a toasted baguette.

Small, crowded- expect to stand up but definitely worth a stop on your pinto crawl. Known for its mushrooms and stuffed peppers.

Very good bar in the square of the old town so a nice location. Had a number of tapas but the cod in a very light batter was sublime. Good wine great cheese and good value.

We sat outside; the food was EXCELLENT and reasonably priced. We loved every morsel of everything we ordered. Tried cider, a bit vinegary for my liking but a fun travel experience. Make sure you go inside outside also. A true tapas experience.

This really is all about the mushrooms - absolutely delicious and a nice surprise as we were actually killing time before heading for another bar. The bar inside is very traditional and the better for it. As another review notes the staff were pretty grumpy...More

Stopped in whilst doing a pintxos crawl. It was a rainy cold evening and the plaza seating wasn't good so we went inside. Not sure if we caught them on a bad moment, but the bar man scowled at the patrons from behind the bar...More

We stopped by here for a few delicious pintxos. Mushrooms, peppers filled with tuna and various other seafood pintxos. All very tasty, and the staff was very friendly.

A typical pintxos bar, small bar, but with tables on the plaza outside. Rather good pintxos, and nice to be able to sit outside in the fresh air. Worth a visit in a pintxos bar hopping route
