In short. Just go, trust me, it's worth it. We are foodies from Seattle and this exceeded our expectations.

If you want details, read below:

The Ambience. It's literally down a little cobblestone alley tucked between a busy street and a train line. It's quiet enough, but definitely good amount of street noise. Which adds to the experience in our opinion vs. the silence we experienced in every restaurant in Beaune, France. We sat outside at a two top set up on the cobblestone, lampposts overhead, urban graffiti on the walls, and fresh flowers on the table. There were couples, friends, and families alike so this is good for all.

The Food. My wife is gluten free, and has many other food allergies so this was a godsend. Not just because they labeled every possible allergy in each dish, but because the quality and flavor of the food was PHENOMENAL! They only had 6 dishes on the menu, and we ordered the green beans with shrimp and the black cod. I could go on but let's just say this, we have one night left in San Seb and are contemplating going back tonight. To give context, my wife is a chef herself with a cookbook, and we travel multiple times a year and the trips focus around wine and food, so we have experienced good food, and this is right there at the top!

The wine. Small bottle list, but we opted for a bio dynamic, sulfate free Cabernet from Penedes. It was 20 euro I believe, which I was suprised to find to be he most expensive they offered. We opened it and good god! Best 20 euro restaurant wine I've ever had. Rich flavor, interesting nose, firm tannins, tasted like a $50+ bottle of American Cab that would cost $75+ in a restaurant. Wine was solid! And yes, we finished the bottle.

The experience. As has been the case in all of Spain for us, service was very warm and hospitable. We made reservations for 9pm hoping to get in on the earlier side (i swear people don't eat till 10pm here) and get an outside seat. The host asked if inside was ok, and if you knew my wife, inside is definitely not ok. So we said we wanted outside and he looked out at the full patio, looked around inside (i could see the wheels turning in his head) and he said "pardon, un momento". He snapped his fingers and 3 server picked up a full table and chairs from inside, and made us a new table outside!

I visited the Tedone Jatetxea restaurant four days ago. It was a bit difficult to locate, but the food experience made it worth the effort. I had a dish consisting of four different kinds of smoked fish, which was really tasty. The only negative was that the Summer menu seemed to be quite limited.

Tucked away down the end of a cul-de-sac, this restaurant has a short menu based on seasonal availability (7 dishes the night we went), but of the three we tried all were delicious. We want to go again during our stay to try the others. Staff were very helpful to those who didn't speak Spanish and were always smiling. This is worth seeking out because it is a very different offering than the pinxtos found elsewhere.

After a week we were tired of tapas, and were looking for some "real" food. My wife is vegetarian, and through tripadvisor we found this place.The restaurant only had 7 dishes on its menu, of which three were vegetarian. They use mostly organic ingredients. And the food itself was GREAT! We had four different dishes (out of the 7) and each one was excellent. The service was great too - they even set up a table outside especially for us as the inside restaurant was full (it is not very big). You may need a GPS or similar to find the place, but it is more than worth the effort of finding it.

Had a lovely meal full of different flavours and textures, a little more than we'd paid at other restaurants but you'd expect that for organic food. The place was clean and the staff friendly so I would recommend a visit
