What can I say...it is all about the cheesecake. Best I have ever had and nothing comes close. We had to end each evening with a late night stop at La Vina. You cannot visit San Sebastián without experiencing. Don’t plan on sitting. Just find...More

The tasting menu here is out of this world! So creative and sophisticated. La Vina looks more like a corner bar for casual socializing yet the food and wine were top notch. We arrived early (around 7pm) and the place quickly filled up on a...More

We arrived here hungry and hungover after a recommendation from a friend to go try the cheesecake - we failed to try the cheesecake but we did have an incredible light lunch of octopus, frittata and Parma ham! All washed down by some alberino. We...More

This restaurant was just outside our pension, yet somehow we missed it the first night! The staff were more mature than at other places ad the décor a bit more old fashioned. But the quality of the food was exceptional - evidenced by the fact...More

We went here purely for the cheesecake. My husband raved - it is true - it's the best cheesecake ever!

I'm sorry but I didn't inquire however one slice is more than enough for two people as it's so rich and filling.

We were there during a very busy service and there were about 10 cakes sitting on the counter with more coming out the oven. I doubt you need to order ahead. The cakes are like custard consistency in the centre, with a... More
