“Ample choices to make your pintxo-taste buds happy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

Good selection, even if you don't recognize everything. Servers are happy to help with that. Reasonable, from about 3e each & up. Sit down available for tapas plates.

“excellent tapas ("pintxos") in Donostia/Sansebastian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2011

One of the multiple bars in the old town, with a long tradition and reputation of the best tapas of anchovies (antxoas) in vinager with different covers. A real pleasure. Try the antxoas jardinera (anchovies covered with a mixture of onions, tomatos and green pepperoni). You can drink a "Zurito" (small bier) or a Txakoli (local white wine with a very special taste).
There are only a few sitting places. People usually stand while having a drink and something to eat and leave the place in 15-20 min.

“Mr anchovy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2011

Txepetxa is a local favourite. Basically if you want an anchovy pintxos in San Sebastian this is your one stop bar. There are other items on the menu but everyone pretty much comes for the house marinated anchovies. Choose from the menu behind the bar or the plastic mock ups on it. A must visit on a pintxos crawl through the old town.
