We came in for a plate of papatas braves and delicious muscles. We had the green sauce with them. The sauce was a little heavy, but the muscles themselves were delicious and fresh. This is a solid choice for inexpensive pinchos before dinner.

Very casual, practically hole-in-the-wall restaurant with a variety of mussel dishes. They do a good job!

This is a budget tapas/seafood bar where we went two times during our short stay in San Sebastian. It was full of people standing right from the entrance so no way to move.

It was crowded. It was dirty. It was loud. But the food sent me to heaven. Delicious, fresh, and simple. Even though it was so busy, our server found the time to play with our little baby and keep her busy. 5 stars.

Back here for the second time this year and still rating this as one of our top 10 bars in San Sebastian. Patatas Brava, Mussels Tigre and Calamari fly off the counter at an amazing rate but the quality remains impeccable and constant even at the busiest of times. Very good beer at 4 euro per liter ! Plenty complimentary... More
