This is the most fun experimental pintxos bar in San Sebastian pintxos scene. Black as a bat cave within and always buzzing with an international set of young look-at-me’s, no one will notice your tiny people whether or not they behave.

Start with the little black dress of Basque pintxos – the gilda. It’s a fat green olive, pickled guindilla pepper and Cantabrian anchovy on a stick. Then go nuts. Must orders: the makobe (a kobe beef slider with a ketchup infused bun and crispy banana txips), and the rabas (black squid ink mini donuts). Most fun presentation goes to the shake your own duck salad served in a hamster ball.

Your biggest problem here will be your small folk’s sharing skills, they’re going to want it all.

About author

Small Folk Travel

Small Folk Travel is a family travel site by mama and travel writer Taraneh Jerven. The Jerven family (two toddlers, one bun in the oven) travels incessantly. When researching our trips, we couldn't find the family travel coverage we were looking for. We did our own research. We wrote the family travel guides ourselves. Taraneh Jerven writes for international travel publishers including RoughGuides.com and DK Eyewitness Travel. We cover good stuff for discerning parents and their little ones. Often these overlap. If they don't, we take turns.
