Second visit and food remains incredible. Simple dishes, but amazing flavours - pigs ear, foie gras, beef cheeks, risotto with smoked cheese, I could go on and on. Only thing we didn't like is tripe, but that's just a personal preference. Don't be put off...More

Best pintxos in San Sebastian. Get the ravioli, the pig ear, and the risotto. Always crowded but worth waiting for.

They serve more complex, cooked pinchos. Absolutely worth it, although can be overwhelmed in evening, with crowds waiting outside.

When I was there they had a few English menus sitting around the bar! They are very friendly and can speak some English so don't worry!

yes they do have an English menu behind the bar you just need to ask the bartender lady for it - it's not awkward or anything :)
