 This is one of our favourite bars in Donostia parte vieja (San Sebastián old town)

You will find excellent old style top quality pintxos in this always buzzy traditional bar and restaurant 

The bar is always laden with pintxos or you can order freshly cooked hot options.


Gulas (fake elvers (baby eels)

These pintxos are always good:


Gernikako piperra (Gernika peppers)

(these are seasonal and available in summer only and not hot like Padrón peppers)

Setas con jamón (Mushrooms and Jamón)

Pintxo gilda (guindilla pepper, green olive and fresh anchovy - named after Rita Haywood - hot, tall and spicy)

Anchoa vinagreta (anchovies marinated in vinegar)

Pasteles de cangrejo (crab cakes)

Crepes de Bacalao (cod pancakes)

Carrillera de buoy (beef cheeks)

Tosta de Jamón Ibérico de Bellota (Acorn fed Iberica Jamón on toast)

Milhojas de manitas de cerdo con hongos (pigs trotters with mushrooms)


The house special solomillo (sirloin steak)

A racione of almejas (calms)

In the restaurant a must have is vaca vieja txuleton (old cow rib eye steak).


Try the house red, excellent Marques Vitoria (€1.70 a glass). You can also buy top wines by the glass like Vega Sicillia (around €16)
