I thought we were pintxo'd out but this place is wonderful. The pintxo anchovies were amazing, the house white wine refreshing and the bar staff friendly and helpful. My interest in pintxos restored, I'm looking forward to our next snack stop! Highly recommended- enjoy.

The Anchovy Pinktos are superb. Very fresh and flavorsome. It's basically standing room only here but it's so worth it. Service is great and they explain the menu and ordering process. They can cater for gluten free. They basically remove the bread. They don't have...More

Great place for seafood pintxos, specialising in Anchovy. The anchovy combinations are truly inspired making it a unique and fantastic experience. A must visit on your pintxos trail!!

Anchovy is the king here. I tried the Anchovy with sea urchin, and it was great. I am normally not an anchovy person, but this is worth a try.

Went here as part of a Devour Spain pintxos food tour. Had three different anchovie dishes, a famous "Gilda" (anchovie and pepper on a skewer) and one with a blueberry jam sauce. Although we were a little skeptical at first, this is their specialty and...More

This was my favourite pintxos bar in San Sebastián. I really like sardines/anchovies, which they specialize in, so clearly this was the place for me, but I would implore all to visit Txepeta anyway. Their particular speciality is with creamed crab and is brilliant. I...More

The place specializes in anchovy pintxos. They are well crafted, very tasty and fairly priced. Worth a stop on your pintxo trail

'll admit I wasn't the biggest anchovy fan before coming here (and San Sebastian) and hadn't ever really eaten them on their own. This place will change that. They make all of their own anchovies fresh and is a must stop on your pintxo tour....More

Many different pintxos of anchovies plus something else. I loved the anchovie with sea urchin. The only drawback is they dont have chairs.

Do ask. We do not speak Spanish and we could somehow manage, even without an English menu. In most places, there will be someone who can communicate with you in English.

As everybody says, go there at early hours and avoid peak time, such as after 20.30. In any case, if there are already many people, just ask the people inside how to manage to have something, as they are usually very kind... More
