Easily one of the top 5 places to grab pintxos in San Sebastian’s Old City. These are a modern take, full of creativity and fun. Some dishes, like the smoked bacalao, requiere the eater to interact with the food by slightly grilling it on the Smokey BBQ, which is cool. The rest are flavor bombs!

By far the best Pinxtos in San Sebastián. A must visit! Great atmosphere and the staff are brilliant. Be honest when it comes to paying your bill!!

Zeruco is a little bar on Pescadoria Street in the old town of San Sebastion. The premises are small, and don't expect to sit down, but the food is excellent in presentation and taste. Most of the wine is from Rioja or Navarra, but they do have a local white, Txacoli or Jacoli which is quite nice after being poured from a great hieght. It is hard work to get served when busy.
After there we went around the corner to Baztan, where the food was also very good, but there was more space.

Not have to say anything more: best pintxos we ever had. Everything fresh and tasty. Try the warm dish. For example the smoked cod.

Some of the reviews were glowing and maybe they were just referring to the pinxto side. We sat in the restaurant side and like others, were anticipating a creative and delicious dinner. Presentation was interesting but not all the dishes worked. Our veal steak was 50% fat, we sent it back. The wine pour by the glass was measly to say the least. While some of the dishes were tasty the service totally ruined our experience. It was quite clear that the kitchen and the servers were incapable of communicating who ordered what . All the servers were walking around totally confused and hardly looking at the diners and their needs. The two chefs at the front prep station were equally confused as well. Maybe their computers were down but I doubt that. With so many good restaurants in town, there’s no reason to go to Zeruko.
