Possibly the best pinxtos we had in San Seb. Bar Bergara is in the Gros part of town and serves contemporary pinxtos, the best of which were little shot glasses of crab or prawn cocktails and other seafood on bread. Good wine and good service and a nice outdoor seating area. 3 other bars here in a little square and... More

This pinchos bar is quite crowded, and for a good reason. The tapas are creative, with whatever is looking good at the market being incorporated into the daily menu. The service is typical for a crowded tapas bar, just work your way up, check out what everyone else is ordering, make eye contact, and place your order. There is some... More

Quite hard to find without the help of Trip Advisor/Maps but well worth the effort. Some of the very best Pintxos I've found in Bilbao or San Sebastián and a nice setting to eat them in the outside seating area. Great friendly service too.

Definitely a gem in the Gros area of San Sebastián. Delicious pintxos that is reasonably priced and family friendly to boot. I would definitely recommend.

The Bar is located a 10 minute walk across the bridge from the old town. It is a much more civilized way of enjoying the great tapa food of San Seb. There was not a big crowd even on a Saturday, and there was actually good service. And their food is better than most of the tapa bars in the... More

We ate some of the most delicate and creative pinxtos here - almost little works of art. It's off the tourist trail and very popular with sophisticated locals.

We love all the pinxchos, i am not sure if i spelt it right but it is truly amazing. Our eyes were far bigger than our tummy needless to say. So do be careful not to over order!

The pintxhos are quite good, simple but tasty. The red house wine did not appeal to us. Good, efficient service. Limited seating inside and outside. Overall, given the majority of other TA reviews, we had expected a somewhat better cuisine, but to be honest the quality was fine.

We stayed in Gros during our week in San Sebastián, and this became one of our go-to spots for lunch or dinner. A delicious assortment of pintxos, including salmon tartare, anchoas con verduras, and carrillerra al vino tinto. Bar Bergara is as high quality as any pintxo bar in Parte Viaje, without having to do battle with other customers to... More

Dinner last night - delicious Pintxos ! so fresh and tasty, and really well presented. Great service, great wine, air conditioned (which was a bonus as it was a 37 degree day) + outside seating. This bar was a highlight for us - we have enjoyed others in San Sebastian & Barcelona, but this was outstanding ! Slightly more expensive... More
