It is a timeless restaurant in the old part of San Sebastian. First the parents created it and now the children are the innovators. José Antonio is the great chef and Marili manages the staff.
The name of the restaurant comes from the name of the boat that the family used to own.
About the cuisine: the bar is phenomenal, the pintxos are colorful and delicious. In fact, José Antonio has won many trophies from the “cocina del pintxo” (the pintxo cuisine).
The restaurant is small, with only ten tables. It is recently renovated.
When we go to Zeruko we go crazy with the foie gras and its two magnificent formulas: the impeccable and splendid foie gras mousse, wrapped in Modena cream, and bread with seeds; or the exquisite foie gras terrine over a sensual and aromatic bread with orujo de hierbas (strong alcoholic liquor distilled from herbs pressings), sherry and raisins.
The codfish with salad is also delicious: toast with smoked codfish with a shot of liquid salad that you have to sip using a small tube.
The smoked eel canapé with zucchini and champagne cream is incredible.
The desserts are all freshly made; I prefer the arroz con leche (rice pudding) and the Catalan cream.
The price goes between 25 and 40 €.
For sure, once a month we end up in Zeruko.
It is a cozy place where you can try some of the famous pintxos of the city… The one I liked the most was the pork’s ear. I recommend it, although the others are delicious as well and everything is prepared the moment you order it.
You can’t come to San Sebastian and not spend some time strolling through the old part of town going from bar to bar eating pintxos!
Our route was quick, we only had one hour and a half before we had to go back to class, but it was intense. First we visited Goiz-Argi, and then we discovered this place, where the quantity of pintxos in the bar is impressive.
What can I say, when you get to a place like this the best thing you can do is grab a plate, fill it with curious and delicious pintxos and wash it down with a good txcacoli (white wine). Enjoy!
The place is great and the food amazing. It is a minimalist restaurant. We really liked the way they prepared the oysters. We went there for our 15th wedding anniversary and it was certainly the right choice. Afterwards we slept in the María Cristina Hotel for a great ending.
My partner and I thought this restaurant was the best thing about San Sebastian. The cold pinchos are the best but the hot pinchos, are spectacular. Gourmet skewers: it is making me salivate to remember. Order: sirloin skewer, duo, croquettes (better than my mum's. Sorry Mum!) Nice waiters and ...you have to go!
Luis and Gema follow family tradition, along with their children, in this restaurant located in the pier of San Sebastián.
It is a very nice open space place under the arches of the port. While you eat you can see the people strolling and the fishing boats on the side.
The seafood and fish are excellent, fresh and of quality. You can get an idea from the pictures.
The restaurant Arzak serves signature cuisine worthy of tasting. The chef, Juan Mari, is the master of masters. He can easily transport you to a world of gustatory senses unknown to most mortals. I think a person ve likes these kinds of sensations has to visit. It's simply orgasmic.
The decor is typical of San Sebastian, very charming. Reservations are advisable, since it's usually packed. The maximum height is 1.40 metres. The most interesting thing to us was the exercise equipment in the water (rowing machine, bicycles). And the most impressive were the views from the Jacuzzi. It was a real treat!
It is a spectacular place with an amazing gastronomic level. The wine menu is good, the fish incredible. Leave a space for desert.
The price is in consonance with what they offer. Don’t forget to drink coffee or a glass of wine in the terrace.
I really recommend this place…it has everything.
It is a beautiful place with great views, amazing quality food and the people ve manage it are fantastic. The cider season is great not only because the cider is exquisite but also because the Kupelas (barrels) are is very typical and it creates a fantastic atmosphere.
Behind Vitoria Eugenia Theatre, this restaurant/cafe has marble tables and a bar where you can read the newspaper. Not only is it spacious, but the snacks (small), with ham and peppers are excellent. Its walls are lined with images of artists from the cinema. Good atmosphere and friendly service - a good, quiet spot to take a break. They have a lunch menu at a good price. Next door is a library that it's perhaps better not to enter, as they only speak in Basque there, in a mission to restore the language.
My partner comes from the Basque Country, so we've visited several times. During one of our trips, we went with three other couples to explore the coast of Guipuzcoa. During our stay in San Sebastian, we found Txalupa. This typical little restaurant is located in the heart of the city of San Sebastián, more specifically in the old part of the capital next to the Plaza de la Constitucion. Here you can find some great examples of the famous Basque pintxos: skewers of meat, tortillas, and plenty of examples of regional cuisine. The dining room is rather small with only 15 tables available. In our case we wanted to try a bit of everything, we sampled mixed salad, seafood paella, beef and chips, haddock in sauce, and for dessert we tried their delicious strawberries and cream and rice pudding with cinnamon.
One of best things about San Sebastian is its cuisine, and in the old town, beside La Concha beach, is paradise. Bartolome bar is not the most traditional, but its good pintxos make it worthwhile. It is also very well priced. We tasted the tortilla, octopus and hake. All were to die for.
