This tapas place well deserves its reputation. Pintchos are all excellent, and despite the huge rush of clients (local and international), the staff was very patient with us non-Spanish speakers.

Like others we stumbled on this restaurant in the middle of nowhere! But what a luck! It was crowded with people inside and outside, but when we saw the plates with pinxtos (tapas) we had to give it a try. Often when things look delicious, it's not that good. This, however, was just great. We where in San Sebastian the... More

Your loss if you pass by this remarkable palace to cuisine. Hondarribia isn't not on anyone's map but no surprise. We love it here. A couple of New Yorkers looking for something. And here it is. Perfection. I wish I knew it in basque. Not necessary due to the committed staff here. It is is the universal language. I love... More

Ed. Discovered this place by accident. As we all know that often is a the best way. The taverNa connected serves f old from the same kitchen. This food is exceptional. I have had the pleasure of dining at Boulay and the creations of Daniel Lee. This food trumps (sorry for the Clinton people) anything I've been blessed to eat... More

Excellent "pintxos" and cheerful bar staff. You can see why they've won so many awards. Try the foie gras and 'false sushi' - both favourites.

This place is a must visit when in Hondarrabia. These are the best pintxos in basque country, better than San Sebastian. The trick is to order off the kitchen. Get the Foie Gras with caramelized onions, amazing. Get the one with the pouched egg!!! Amazing!! Everything fresh and tasty.

Grand Sol is a bit upmarket and classy compared to the bars along San Pedro. There is space to breathe. Only thing was the portions were somewhat small, though very tasty.

Not being fluent, it is always a little intimidating ordering, but the pay off is something out of culinary dreams. We grabbed a small table inside and ordered the pork and the egg hot pintxos which were both excellent. They do have a paper menu if the chalkboard is too hard for you to read.

Now this is a little embarrassing but we started her about 1.30pm and left at 6.30pm!!! We did leave after about an hour to scout other nearby Pinxtos bars but simply wondered why we wanted to be anywhere else than Bar Gran Sol. We know our tapas & Pinxtos & these are as good as we've had anywhere. Great selection... More
