This unfussy, hard-to-find bar offers miniature nueva cocina vasca (Basque nouvelle cuisine) from a supremely creative kitchen. Unlike many San Sebastián bars, this one doesn’t have any pintxos (Basque tapas) laid out on the bar top; instead you must order from the blackboard menu behind the counter.

Don’t miss delights such as carrílera de ternera al vino tinto (calf cheeks in red wine), with meat so tender it melts in your mouth.
