We had an awesome dinner at Ni Neu. San Sebastián on a Saturday night is packed with tourists, making for a bustling, crowded environment. Ni Neu was a nice refuge next to the water, down the boulevard from the all-night insanity in Old Town. We enjoyed phenomenal osso buco for two with creamed fennel and green salad with mint; two glasses of refreshing Cava, and a bottle of Rioja red. They presented us with a box of tasty treats after dinner. This was all less than 100 euros, which is unheard of where we are from (San Francisco/Healdsburg). Highly recommend making a reservation here!

Ni Neu is a perfect example of the proverb "Don't judge a book by its cover". It looks beautiful from the outside but the food is lousy. The restaurant offers only set menu or tasting menu at 29.50€ and 42€ respectively. Luckily we chose the cheaper menu. Service was average to poor. One waitress just dumped the whole tray onto our table with the basket of bread and my starter spoon on it. Another waitress walked by and quickly took the tray away looking embarrassed.
Food was not prepared in a high quality way. It's either very bland or very overwhelming . The lamb was very salty. The desserts were not any nicer. The French toast's coating was very sweet but once this was removed then it was actually quite nice. So the combination of flavours were still up to a proper standard yet.
Wine was included in the menu but again it was not great.

The food was very good but the experience was ruined by really rude staff. From the moment we walked in and were completely ignored until we paid the bill and left every single staff member was very unpleasant. It is a pity because the meal was actually very nice and very good value.

Being near the seaside in a high tourist area we thought it would be over the top expensive here - it wasn't! The set menu is recommended - beautiful food & an excellent price although that was in early October '16 so the prices may have changed with many good reviews? Hopefully not. I usually review a restaurant like this shortly after we go there but I must have forgotten - better late than never. It has fine dining cuisine in an elegantly casual setting. Also excellent service from friendly, attentive staff who speak English very well...appreciated that as our Spanish is limited to v little more than basic greetings. Book in advance as it's very popular. Many thanks to all the staff...a delightful ending to our 5 night stay in beautiful Sans Sebastian - one of our favourite places in Europe!

Considering we had eaten some fabulous food in San Sebastián this was a bit of a let down. Fair enough it was a set menu for San Sebastián day but started with 3 fish courses in succession, 2 of which were cod.
The shredded beef was tasty but nothing special. 2 reasonable desserts followed
Wine was either a bottle of red or white with no option to have half and half.
Staff were lovely. Would give it another go on full menu.
