Ate here for seafood on recommendation of our hotel. Food was reasonable - anchovies and selection of hams to start followed by sea wolf and fried calimar for the main course. Food was tasty, but not spectacular; service was reasonably friendly, but did not show anything special. perhaps it was the end of a long Easter week. Overall, the restaurant... More

We then chose monkfish in a green sauce which was just beautiful. The Millefeuille cake was gorgeous with coffee. Everything was lovely, service and food and the... More

We dined here twice May 2016. Lovely atmosphere in rear dining room. Front tapas bar is a zoo. Food nice, reasonably priced and great service. Lamb chops great. Steak excellent. But, the fried green peppers were our first and really wonderful.

After startimg with a delicious lobster salad, we had an exquisite perfectly cooked turbot. The service was excellent and made great recommendations for wine. We are going back tonight to try more dishes!

If your looking for a great basque experience this is it. Don't let them seat you downstairs if possible. The service and food are terrific. The location is right in the middle of old town which is a blast to explore before and after dinner. The fish dinners are super special

One of the premier stops on Eskerne's pintxos tour. Not to be missed. Do not miss the green peppers.

A very good seafood place. Oysters and almejas are always a delight. As a main pick a nice fish, something a bit larger fitting 3 or 4 people is a good choice. In the end the bill will not be low but you will have enjoyed great quality.

It is hard to eat a full meal in SS after going to all the pintxos bars both at Bernardo and at other bars in the old town. After several nights of pintxos hopping we decided to have a traditional dinner. And we are glad we chose Bernardo's. After a delicious, complementary Iberico ham plate, we started with the mixed...

Ate there twice. Quick, friendly service. Order from the kitchen - the hot food is best. Shrimp bruschetta, octopus, and grenadillas. And cider, of course!
