It was crowded. It was dirty. It was loud. But the food sent me to heaven. Delicious, fresh, and simple. Even though it was so busy, our server found the time to play with our little baby and keep her busy. 5 stars.

Back here for the second time this year and still rating this as one of our top 10 bars in San Sebastian. Patatas Brava, Mussels Tigre and Calamari fly off the counter at an amazing rate but the quality remains impeccable and constant even at the busiest of times. Very good beer at 4 euro per liter ! Plenty complimentary... More

Cool bar with really quick service. This was the only place in San Sebastián we saw patatas bravas and they were delicious. A must visit for vegetarians!

It's a typical Spanish crowdy place so you are sure it's good food! Nice thing is that they serve also half portions (medio racion). Try the calamaris con pimento de padron. Very good combination!

The service is pretty good, so no matter there was really crowded, we didn't wait a long our meals. We ordered the... More
