Basque restaurant serving pintxo, tapas and unique wines
The pintxos are superb and we are huge fans of San Sebastián and this is the real thing just wonderful.
Lovely G&T to start in a goldfish bowl. The specials one after another were superb. Wine paired with the cheese was exceptional. Then another G&T to finish. A great first visit - we would like yo live there!
Great food. Great vibe.
the food and service is great. When you are sitting in the back you are loosing some of the atmosphere and you feel your are in the "second" space - if possible try to get a table in the front part
Amazing authentice Basque cuisine. Great service and we had a wonderful evening. We will be going back soon!
Superb quality food. Lovely service
Always enjoy our dining experience in Donostia. Food deliciously fresh, staff warm and welcoming, great wine and all reasonably priced!
Wonderful restaurant. I’ve been here many times and it’s always fantastic- the food, the wine and the service. A real favourite
Great find. Very unique and delicious tapas. Great service as well.
Delicious food & buzzy but relaxed atmosphere. We will be back!
Lovely reminder of Catalan cuisine. Perfect if you’re hungry, or just want a light snack.
Really good service, and food always reliable . Great for casual get together with friends, no fuss no hype
Trendy hip place with excellent tapas and chill atmosphere. Delicious croquetas, soft as butter oxtails and great bread pudding dessert. excellent waitstaff! Would definitely return if in London.
Cuando hice la reserva, reservé mesa a las 20.30 pensando que no habría problema y teniendo en cuenta que vuestro sistema ofrecía mesa a esa hora. No caí en la cuenta de que cerráis a las 21.00 y cuando llegamos allí básicamente tuvimos que pedir todo rapidísimo y un poco agobiados. El servicio fue muy deficiente. Llegamos a las 20.20 y hasta las 20.40 no tuvimos las cartas para poder pedir, lo que nos agobió aún más. Las camareras no fueron precisamente amables, no dieron ni las buenas tardes y te traían los platos prácticamente soltándolos en la mesa. Una camarera, que parecía que no hablaba español, era la única que me pareció profesional y encantadora. Eso sí, la comida estaba muy rica aunque viendo que era un lugar vasco me sorprendí con los platos gallegos :) me hubiera encantado ver algo más de la tierra! Pero sin duda la comida espectacular, a pesar de una experiencia no demasiado buena en cuanto al servicio se refiere...
With a party of 3 we chose Donostia for this year's annual 'reunion' dinner, having been recommended to try the restaurant. We enjoyed excellent food, wine and service in a relaxed atmosphere with an authentic 'feel'. We chose across the tapas menu until our waiter suggested 'that would be enough' and the arrival of food kept pace with and complimented the conversation perfectly. We inquired if we would be able to keep the table longer than the advised 2 hours and by luck were told this was possible and although the restaurant was full we did not feel pressured in terms of time. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, we will be back and would highly recommend Donostia.
Overall nice, service wasn't great maybe because we were in the corner but we were pretty much ignored and had to put our hands up and really try to get attention for another glass of wine!
Excellent as always. Delicious food and great service!
Very friendly and helpful staff made for a good experience.
Excellent evening - a little too fast service to start but afterwards the staff understood and adjusted.
Good. But expensive
this was my 4th visit - always a pleasure.
Set menu was very good and excellent value. The white wine pairing was a really yummy and interesting wine - worth having the bigger glass for a small extra charge. Friendly staff, pleasantly efficient service. The only small negative is that the menu was a bit short on green veg choices to add as a side to the mains/larger plates which came without any veg at all.
Absolutely delicious meal with a wonderful gin and tonic to start -- and lovely, helpful staff to boot.
Great food, service, special tastes and options.
