Before our bar crawl in San Sebastian, I read many reviews about the highly rated restaurants in the old town. La Vina was highly recommended for its cheesecake. So it was in our list. The restaurant was very busy, but we did not wait to be served. They were very friendly. My wife and I enjoyed the restaurant very much.... More

Another excellent pintxos bar which we visited to sample their baked cheesecake which we had heard about. Well worth the visit as the cheesecake lived up to it's recommendation and would merit a return visit if we find ourselves in San Sebastián again.

Busy but not frantic. Superb tapas cooked fresh and served by attentive and friendly staff. There are many Tapas bars that serve all their food buffet style with plates of food on the bar. How long that has been out ,who knows. Here you order your tapas fresh and the quality shows

Wow. I mean WOW!!! . There's only one place that serves better cheesecake - that's my home! A great place to finish a Pintxos tour with the sweet cheesecake- baked to perfection. A portion can easily be shared by two. Washed down with a sweet wine. Perfect.

The pintxo selection was small but varied with a few very good choices, particularly the anchovy cream cheese concoction ( we couldn't eat just one). A steady flow of customers so seems to be a popular place.

Possibly the most delicious cheesecake ever. I wasn't a fan of baked cheesecake until today. If you're in San Sebastian then I definitely recommend. Melts in your mouth and surprisingly light. They sell some pintxos too but for me this is all about destination cheesecake.

Had the yummiest cheese cake here while on a pinxtos crawl in San Sebastián. My husband also tried some of their sea food pinxtos which he said were delicious also, I was too full myself to try another other than the cheese cake. Staff was friendlier here than at most pinxtos bars.
