Having visited many a bar across the San Sebastian old town, my friends and I were lucky enough to find this one which has Pinxtos like no other - it brings the Tapas into the New millenium in an astounding way. Coupled with that, the staff are attentive and helpful and we cannot wait for a return visit next time... More

We got here just after it opened for the day and it was already busy. Everything looked so yummy and fresh. Definitely recommend visiting this spot.

Pintxos bars are a thing, and a lot of the fun is in walking from bar to bar to sample the different specialties. I remember Zeruko being a bit more expensive than the others, but it was 100% worth every euro, and moment, we spent inside. I can't remember any misses, but the one hit we talk about, years later,... More

One of the many Bars in old town that you need to stop and sample the Pintxos, the problem is that there are too many choices that look delicious. The selection here had a few more different and interesting mixes over the standards so well worth a visit.

It's fun that they use molecular gastronomy but I think the fun takes a little more priority over the final quality. The artichoke looked pretty and just tasted like a dry artichoke that was burnt. The fish that's raw and you smoke and drink from a little vile was the best item. Fun but there are better places. I would... More

Pintxo - A pincho (Spanish: [pinto], literally "thorn" or "spike") or pintxo (Basque: [pinto]) is a small snack, typically eaten in bars, traditional in northern Spain and especially popular in the Basque country and Navarre. Donostia / San Sebastián is know for it's gastronomy (among other things). Seeing as this gorgeous coastal city is home to two of the world's... More

Loved this place! Modern, innovative and beyond delicious! Understandably one of the busiest bars we visited - it's a real experience. There's no place for inhibitions, get stuck in and enjoy!

Like all the reviewers note, this place is delicious and very creative. They have so many options that it can be a bit overwhelming, especially when it's crowded. They will give you a plate, you load it up with the pintxos you want and they will take the plate and heat up the ones that need heating up and you... More

Returned to Bar Zeruko and impressed again by their innovative and creative approach to pinxtos. The food is outstanding and, of course, the atmosphere is superb.

On a repeat visit to San Sebastioan, and Zeruko remains firmly entrenched in our top ten favourites. Delectable fine aromas and delicate flavours in the Hoguera (bonfire) and the Anguilha Ahumada (smoked eel). The langoustine in katafi pastry is unusual but very good. The stuffed and fried artichoke hearts demand a second serving. The anchovies and txipiron mango were up... More
