The concept is really good. Mix two great food cultures, one of the best sources of raw material and aim high. But Txubillo falls very short of the expectation. The bonito tatami was really good, and the winter miso with veggies and meat was nice,...More

Small little gem serving light Japanese food. Small basement with a few tables and small capacity . Nice friendly service. Great food . $120 euros for 3 people, 3 courses with wine. A great place to visit.

This place is good. They know what they're doing in the kitchen and had good wine. Their house sake was just perfect for my preference, not too sweet or too dry. I'll be back this week to order everything on their Japanese fusion bar menu...More

Went here as it was close to the apartment in Ondaretta. Did not expect much as so far food has been mixed in San Sebastien. It is in a basement so can be easily to miss. Bijou and close quarters with the tables but beautiful...More

Rather odd restaurant with odd service. The place looks very Japanese but attempts to fuse Japanese and Basque food. Food tastes ok but the more Japanese orientated dishes are not great by Japanese standards and the more Basque orientated food is ok but not fantastic....More

I've been having dinner and I love the mixture between basque and japanese food. I recommend this place, the owners are japanese and I could taste one of the best dinner during my eurpopean tour. Arigato gozaimashita

This is not a restaurant you would accidentally walk in, as it is away from the crowds, in a small alley and underground. As soon as you walk in, you could be forgiven for thinking that you have been transported to Japan, as the small...More
