Best meal of our four days in San Sebastián. Manager Bea was really helpful and friendly. Great choice of wines by the glass

I am surprised by some of the previous reviews but perhaps we were lucky. We dined here last night, when Spain were actually playing in the World Cup, and the place was great. Wonderful atmosphere, our waitress was excellent, and the food was top quality (Patatas bravas, octopus, fish soup, paella and very well priced rose wine and sangria. There was way too much food for us and we left feeling that it was good value. The paella for 2 with seafood/ fish is nearly €50 so that will eat a hole in your budget, but everything else seemed well priced, especially given the location right in the centre of the Old Town when you want to sit down slightly away from the packed pinxos bars. We also had a child with us, and they catered well for him.

We went for a “Degustacion” menu. We ordered red wine, we first got white wine.
Starter should have been a croquetas de jamon iberico. We were served jamon iberico with bread.
Second dish was supposed to be Volovan with langostinos. When we asked the waiter what dish was served it was a Solomillo! However, a second waiter confirmed the dish. However, the langostinos were missing. After complaining a single langostino came, as a supplement, after nearly half an hour.
The fourth dish was a solomillo, or whatever it was, it was certainly very chewyand not tasty.
The cheesecake was Ok and so was the bread.
Finally when we should pay the bill the amount for the menu was incorrectly specified.
It was a very bad experience and a profound disappointment. Cannot be recommended!

This place is often crowded inside, so we took a chance to have dinner on the terrace. We were not impressed with what we received.

I had a salad that was trown together in the kitchen, heavy decorated with mayonaise. My husband had a entrecote, with soggy French fries on the side.

We were not impressed. I wouldn’t recommend this place. There’s much better food to enjoy in San Sebastián!

The service was Ok.

Walked past here one evening and it was buzzing so we booked for the next night. Staff were great and we started with the Iberian ham and cheese croquettes which were tasty.
We then then shared a sea food paella which was poor.
It was a dark brown colour unlike the vibrant colours I’ve normally seen in a paella. Flavour was ok but just ok and there was a distinct lack of sea food.
There are many good quality restaurants in SS and I’m afraid this is one I would walk past to get to them.
