What a pity to have such a lousy restaurant in the most beautiful spot in the world's gastronomic capiral. Serice lousy, much too expensive, dirty toilets, poor variety of menu... I promise I will never return

We were attempting to get a seat at the restaurant next door. For visitors not knowing how to get a table, we found both restaurants confusing. There didn't seem to be any hostess. Some people just seated themselves and when we asked we were told to wait. When no one acknowledged us we went to a waitress who was just seating another group. We arrived right at 1 PM when they open and were seated inside at a fabulous table overlooking the beach. Once seated our experience changed. Food was good, view was fabulous and desserts we wonderful. Would recommend hiring a hostess to help guests with seating options.

After a long walk on the beach, we were triggered by the menu of this place, which was put at the entrance already at noon. It took us 10 minutes to receive the menu, it took another 10 minutes to hear that the menu at the entrance was not available until 20:30.

The woman who was "serving" us (or should I say "snarling 4 words") was absolutely terrible. It seemed like she hated her job, and tourists even more. Her attitude was incredibly disturbing, and during the 20minutes we were waiting, at least 5 coupes left the place as well, because there was no service, long waiting times, and when someone finally did show up, they were rude and ignorant.

We stopped off at this cafe one evening after a stroll along the beach, for a drink and some pintxhos When we went into the cafe we found a table and sat down. The waitress didn't even acknowledge us and the man cooking was the same. Eventually my husband went up to the man cooking and ordered 2 drinks and some pintos. When they were ready the cook put them on the bar and just left them. Eventually we asked if they were ours and the man just nodded. I would not recommend anyone to go to this bar, it does have an amazing location but the staff are rude and the prices are expensive.

This is the absolutely best place to stop for a coffee when walking the beaches of San Sebastian. Service is normal for N Spain (slow for UK) but you can get cofffee and snacks straight from bar. They just (June 2013) won bronze prize for their Pintxos - and this is the best town on the planet for bar snacks.
