This was the first bar we went to. Not used to how busy these bars to get we felt a bit overwhelmed. I found us a spot to sit long the bar and the bartender came to us. Super friendly. We had the braised beef cheek which was delicious.

Great bar with wonderful wine and food. Pictures of celebrities line the walls, with no real reason or pattern. Just a fun place with a passionate guy behind the bar serving food and wine.

It was our first San Sebastian experience when we came here as virgins. Now for the third time back we still enjoy the city and discover new aspects. About the restaurant, it is maybe nothing special but we enjoyed it very much. Ricing reasonable.

We have been in San Sebastián for almost a week and enjoying lots of pinxtos in the old town. However we really craved a sit down relaxed meal and luck drove us to Oquendo. It was cool and raining and the bar looked warm and inviting. We went in for a drink and spied a great menu. It was early... More

This place is really worth a visit. Just good food at a reasonable price with good wine available. The two of us just had a pintxo of rice which was very flavoursome. We then ordered calamari Fritos and a salad. The calamari was excellent, very tender with just the right amount of salt. The salad was yummy with excellent white... More

Places which are "institutions" are often off putting. Not this one. Bar at the front with good range of pinxtos and restaurant behind. Lunch for 5. Quiet table. Fast service. Food was good (merluza was fish of the day, done to perfection). reasonbale pricing. Well recommended.

Marthe runs a very happy restaurant serving good food at a reasonable price. We popped back several times during our 10 day holiday and were always... More
