We came into this bar because we were attracted by the beautiful tapas/pintxos on display & it was very busy. The dishes we ordered were so delicious & very reasonably priced. This is a really great spot for lunch.

We have selected this Pintxos bar after half day tour around fantastic narrow streets in San Sebastian. Cold varieties followed by warm ones. Octopus salad, anchoise, shrimps, bacalau fish, mushrooms, squids, piperade, are only a few ...we enjoyed a lot trying different pintxos at Munto.

This is a place I have visited when I'm in San Sebastian. During my visit in June the Pintxos were good but they slipped with the order so it took a very long time. This time it happened again, but what bother me more is the quality of the Pintxos. I had a bola de bosque, a croqueta del mar... More

We've travelled through Spain and often visited Tapas bars but this was our first visit to SS & our first taste of Pintxos. It was a wet night and we were looking for our hotel's recommendation (which we couldn't find as the mud map is too basic - found in morning!). Anyway, we were very hungry and we found a... More

We came twice with our group of 6 couples to sample the delicious tapas of this place. Notwithstanding the difficulties in getting the staff's attention in this bar where people are lining up 3-deep, we enjoyed the large variety of fresh pintxos, our favourites were the foie à la plancha, grilled sardines, or the pimento relleno de bacalao. It was... More

We went here for lunch, this is a very busy bar populated by locals & visitors, the food is very fresh & the choice of pintxos extensive. We had the misfortune to be served by an imbecile ( yes you, the bald unshaven idiot who found it incredibly funny to take the **** out of the visitors to this delightful... More

Just watching the action at this bar is entertainment a plenty. The food is excellent and the ability of the bar staff to keep track of everyone flowing in and out of the premises is legendary. Don't expect chit chat from the staff, they are way too busy. Do expect excellent food, great wine and uncanny understanding of what you... More

We had a wonderful time in the old town in San Sebastián. The old town has the highest concentration of bars in the world and I think we gave most of them a try in our 5 day visit. Bar Munto was a standout for us. We loved their food and their service was fantastic. There is a great girl... More

Friendly staff, bright and clean, food was excellent, worth trying some hot options and we enjoyed some of the best ham we found in Spain here.
