Would definitely return. so much choice and fantastic value. Bar tenders were very helpful despite being extremely busy. Great choice of wines at ridiculously cheap prices - but maybe I shouldn't say as such in case they increase their prices!

But great tapas for all - we enjoyed their variety and well managed table allocations which allowed us to sit without reservations rather quickly. Our waiter Jose was really efficient and helped us have a great time.

We didn't book but managed to find a table for six. Service was very good and the food was excellent. Great mix of food available and the drink was lovely. Especially enjoyed the beef cheek on mash and olives and anchovies. This is a very busy bar but worth pushing your way to the bar for. Highly recommend.

It is always daunting doing the crowded pintxo bar thing with little kids but we were happy to find a table outside and a waitress that quickly arrived to take drink orders and bring us an extra stool for seating. Cocktails were yummy... More

This place was recommended by the agent who checked us in into our apartment. It is beautifully located next to Iglesia de Santa Maria at Parte Vieja (old town). It is the busiest pintxos restaurant in the area. Very funky with good music. Great selection of pintxos which looked much fresher than the other bars. There is also a menu... More

Atari is one of the top pintxo establishments in San Sebastián. The smoked salmon tartare and the foie a la plancha are absolutely amazing and the bao is incredible. The place is lively and crowded yet, in spite of the crowds, the staff and patrons make a person feel very welcome. As in all popular pintxo bars, one has to... More

Tapas or dinner, stand or sit, inside or out, music, wine or cocktails...in a town of many choices this one place has them all. So head up to the Santa Maria Church in the top corner of the old town in front you'll find Atari at the top of its game. Whatever you fancy you'll have no need to to... More

this place is a great place for a drink or snacks or even dinner. it is located in the heart of the old city right opposite the church. there are tables outside and people grab a drink and sit on the steps outside of the church to eat and drink

We came here every day that we were in San Sebastian. Not only was the food and music good, but the gin and tonics are the bomb! Smuggle them over to the church steps or hang on the patio. It's perfect!
