“Popular pintxos bar serving mainly hot pintxos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Ventured in on a busy Friday evening but the staff handled service very well. Best dish is the veal cheeks, could have eaten them with a spoon they were so tender. Would have stayed and explored the menu more but the bar was heaving!

“The problem with tripadvisor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Service was great. Food was average. Likely getting the great reviews as most tourists don't leave the central area. Venture a bit further out and you'll find bars serving much better food.

“The beef cheek!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

After lots of hype from the staff at our hostel, we eventually made it into border Berri for the beef cheek (a Spanish delicacy) for all of 3€ a serve (2 was sufficient for me) with a serve of bread. It is delicious. Only downfall was the shop was only open random hours so it took 3 days before we actually caught it when it was open. Must try!

“Great Pintxos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

This place gets a lot of hype, but it's worth it. The food is great. The other thing that I prefer over the majority of tapas places in San Sebastian is that everything is made to order, it's not out on the bar for everyone touch and cough on.

I highly recommend this place.

“Fabulous Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We ate tapas twice here, once at lunchtime when the food was magnificent and once at night when the food was excellent but slightly less "fall off the bone" as it was at lunchtime which was less busy. We will definitely go back again when we are in San Sevbastian again.
