We thought it would be nice to have a sit down dinner so we asked around an received a couple of recommendations for Gandarias. We had our Hotel make reservations for us, which I recommend as when we showed up the place was very busy. We were seated promptly and our food and service were great.

You could spend along long tine here and possible never come out. Super range of tapas, matched by a vast range of exciting wines backed by very knowledgeable staff and service. Tapas to be eaten standing up but there is arestaurant at he rear. Great atmospere and the place is always packed

We had read positive reviews so thought it would be worth a try. The red wine was very good but the pintxos....
We picked 2, a crab and a black pudding. My friend took a bite of one, I tried the other. We asked each others reaction and it was the same, watery, very cold, & flavorless. We threw away the rest. Such a disappointment, especially after the deliciousness of Artari next door. We can admit the wine was very good (actually we haven't come across a bad red wine in Basque Country yet!) but the food and the impersonal device was very disappointing!

We travelled from Biarittz to San Sebastián in Spain with a friend who lives in Biarittz and she took us to Gandarias on a day trip.
The tapas were superb would recommend the fillet of steak, mushrooms, black pudding and foie gras tapas but we tried heaps and they were all delicious. The local white wine and red are really good. A tip for those who go to try the tapas bars, you throw your napkins on the floor and you can tell how popular the tapas bar is by the number of napkins on the floor when you go in. Something we did not know before we went. Great value there were three of us and our numerous tapas and two glasses of wine only came to 36 euros. San Sebastián is fantastic go and look at the square which was the bull ring there. The units around are numbered and this is where the rich and powerful sat to watch the bull fights.

High quality pintxos and excellent wine at very affordable price. Fair to say it is also very very busy but the staff made us feel welcome on every occasion. worth having a drink just to soak up the atmosphere of the town alone.
