At first we thought we entered Atari, then if you look closer you notice that Atari is a traditional place next doors and Sirimiri is the more delicate version (still mentions Atari in the name). Portions are rather small but full of creativity and taste, actually it's about two bites per pintxo. We tried the pulpo (octopus), vieira (scallops) and... More

We were recommended several places to visit for pinxtos while in Pais Vasco. This was easily the best of our trip. The food was elaborate in taste and presentation yet what made it amazing, was that the produce is so simple, yet obviously of very high quality. Highly recommend the salmon that smokes in front of you: this was a... More

We haven't found a "bad" pintxos bar in San Sebastián at all, but there are just a few that are really excellent. This is one of those. The bar is popular for its vermouth, and the one we were served was great. We weren't going to eat anything but we ended up having four large pintxos and couldn't manage to... More

My husband and I went to probably 15 pintxo bars and Sirimiri was one of our favorites. The octopus, croquettes, rice dish and pate plate were all delicious and I only wish we got to try many more of their items. The space is also lovely and since we went there right after it opened, we didn't have any crowds... More

Xirimiri/Sirimiri is the "lab" for next-door Atari, and has more experimental raciones. Skip the tapas that are out and explore the made-to-order menu, the smoked salmon is incredible. As a bonus, their bartenders are very skilled (also skip the cocktails listed and get a classic - they make a mean manhattan).

Popped in with my young son for drinks and snacks. We are both gluten intolerant so finding gluten free options can be a challenge, especially with a fussy seven year old in tow. Staff were friendly and understanding and went through the menu to accommodate our needs. Food and cocktails were great - especially the salmon which comes with its... More

My girlfriend and I stopped at Sirimiri every night during our recent trip to San Sebastian. Atari (their neighbor) garners alot of the headlines but Sirimiri stole the show. The atmosphere is a bit younger and more hip[ that most of the other pintxo spots in the old town. We worked our way through almost the entire menu.... the Octopus... More

Bar Sirimiri [/ caption] Among the tapas bars of the Old Town from time to time a new opening or reopening of a former local occurs. This is the case of Sirimiri Bar , a bar located next to the church of Santa Maria , on Calle Mayor 18, which highlights the wide bar full of thorns and is decorated local after redecoration. The bar, the same owners of Bar Atari , has in the back of the store with a small restaurant with a few tables in a loft, while under the dining room is a sort of miniature cider nicely decorated to making the site a irresistible to organize a good group dinner choco. As we say, they are 2 very small spaces but they do very well its function. In Sirimiri you can have a drink together with some of its cold or any of its pintxos famous toast . If instead the overnights we recommend you try one of their cups, in one of his conreto gintonics that prepare fabulously well. You'll have plenty of brands to choose from.
