We tried a lot of pintxos during our 2-day stay in San Sebastian. A lot. These were the absolute BEST. It's away from the more popular part of San Sebastian, and you could actually sit down and enjoy yourself! Everything was so incredibly tasty, and my husband and I still can't believe how cheap everything was. We ended up striking... More

Delicious pintxos you could choose any of the tantalising treats on the counter and not go wrong. Paired with a lovely crisp cava perfecto.

Freshly arrived in San Sebastián, this restaurant was a great place to spend time on a wet Monday night. Their Pintxos are real works of art and tasty too. I'm not sure what the food is called but it was all good. The restaurant is quite functional - clean and bright and with simple tables and chairs. The staff were... More

Smallish, bright, friendly bar with excellent pintxos and wines, in a quieter part of town. We ate here twice, and the food was consistently excellent.

This was the best of the Pintxos bars we visited in Saint Sebastian. The pintxos we ordered were all amazing. You should not miss this bar, though the way from the old town is far.

We stayed in Gros and it just so happens we were just a couple of blocks away from Bar Bergara, not to be confused with Casa Bergara. The pintxos were great, especially the carrillera. For 5€ you get a chunk of tender beef, smothered in a delicious sauce, yum!

As other reviewers wrote, have to walk 10-15 min from old town to get here. But would simply it is worth it. Great foie gras on the risotto, just so impressive. We went here early evening around 1600h which was easy to get a seat. Otherwise maybe so crowded you will have to stand. Anyway, a must go place.

Possibly the best pinxtos we had in San Seb. Bar Bergara is in the Gros part of town and serves contemporary pinxtos, the best of which were little shot glasses of crab or prawn cocktails and other seafood on bread. Good wine and good service and a nice outdoor seating area. 3 other bars here in a little square and... More

This pinchos bar is quite crowded, and for a good reason. The tapas are creative, with whatever is looking good at the market being incorporated into the daily menu. The service is typical for a crowded tapas bar, just work your way up, check out what everyone else is ordering, make eye contact, and place your order. There is some... More

Quite hard to find without the help of Trip Advisor/Maps but well worth the effort. Some of the very best Pintxos I've found in Bilbao or San Sebastián and a nice setting to eat them in the outside seating area. Great friendly service too.

Thank John W
