Stopped in a for a couple of drinks at the bar. A really nice place to come and enjoy a drink and some tapas. There is also a full menu available. The staff were very attentive and helpful

My two business colleagues and I, who were in town for a conference, must have walked the streets in and around North Beach for an hour looking for a place to eat. We looked at the menus at least a dozen restaurants, and none fit...More

After several trips to Spain we are always looking for the flavor we experienced there. Bask is the real deal. Of course, great croquetas and paella. But it was the squid in ink and the mushrooms in cream sauce that took us back to Spain....More

Great place for Basque tapas. The lamb mestballs were very tasty and so too was the Calimari. Wine selection was okay.

I was wandering around San Francisco for an hour as I wanted to find somewhere for a really nice lunch. Too much choice. Anyway, I finally plumped for Bask - what a great choice. Great service, great beer, great food. Mega thumbs up. Loved it.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
