“Fun experience in San Sabastian”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

What a fun time, and the food was delicious. Best pork ribs, ever. The meat was tender and favorable and fell off the bone. We had to order more. We also had the cheese risotto that was very favorable. The wine was so-so, but we were there for the food and experience. There were no tables, rather shelves within the restaurant and shelves outside. We chose outside for a more interesting experience with others dining at similar pinxtos bars, etc., and we were not disappointed. Service was fast and everyone was friendly. You can't beat the price for some amazingly tasty dishes. One of our favorite experiences in Spain.

“Spectacular”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Don't miss this pintxos bar. Food is off the charts. As many others have said, the ribs, the pig ear in romesco, the risotto, etc. my wife and I went three times in two days. We ordered every tapa on the menu at least once. The octopus stuffed ravioli was our favorite.

“Best Ribs Ever!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Borda Berri is a little different than some of the other pintxos bars in that you need to order everything off the menu, but the food was spectacular. The ribs were the best we've ever had, and both the risottos and veal cheaks did not dissppoint! A must when in San Sebastian!

“Small place, great pinxtos”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

A small place, only a few places to sit. More of a place where you stand by the bar and eat a few pinxtos. Easy to find location in the middle of the old part of town. Nice rustic atmosphere. Very good warm tapas. Try the risotto, ribs and veal cheek, among others. Everything we tasted was either good or great - and it's cheap as well!
