Located the old quarter this tiny place has a limited menu and don't expect to get to sit. It epitomises the street dining culture of the region. If you don't like super fresh tomatoes, pimento peppers and beef, then don't go there; if you do, then this is near heaven. Great wines too. Highly recommended.

Wow. Was there 5 days ago and still close my eyes to dream of the amazing taste of that beef. Tomatoes and peppers awesome, wine great and all reasonably priced. It's a bit crazy and way too small for its popularity so you might have to wait for some standing space at the bar (you won't get one of the... More

Whenever I visit San Sebastián, Bar Nestor is top of my list for food. Good value, fun and lively Mr Nestor always has a smile on his face as do his staff. You can choose the beef chop that you want, enough to feed 4. The Tortilla is as good as any you taste but you have to put your... More

Good quality but crazy expensive. No price visible in the bar you don't know what is the price and you have a bad surprise after eat. I don't think the prices are good, in my opinion is over priced for foreign.

All you need to know is that the tortilla here is magnificent. Each mouthful is a delight. You will never eat a better tortilla.

Low key, informal dining with friendly staff...also easy/welcoming for those who don't speak much Spanish. Steak is good - see photos + also try the tomatoes & grilled green peppers. As you can see from the photos, nothing particularly Chefy or fancy just home style cooking. Turn over seems good as the place (like most in this area) is often... More

Good fun staff, nice drinks and amazing food. You need to get in early to get a seat, and their daily food is top quality, but limited stock.

They only serve steak, tomato and fried peppers, sometimes tortilla if you order in advance. People only visit for these combination and its crowded all the time. I have never eaten that delicious tomatoes any where else, meat was so soft and melts in your mouth. There is only one table inside, we were lucky to find seats. The owner... More

In the old city, part of the usual round of bars. Bar Nestor offers a great chuleton (ribeye) Cooked to perfection I was amazing. Not on the cheap side but definitely worth it.
