We are disgusted by the treatment that we received here. When we arrived, we asked for a table for two, and were told that we'd be waiting about half an hour, as there were three more couples ahead of us in the queue. However, we had to wait longer, and people who arrived after us were served ahead of us - they even put tables for two together to create a larger table to seat a big group who had been behind us. When we reported our dissatisfaction to the waitress, she replied rudely, raising her voice. CONCLUSION: We arrived at 21:40, and after waiting more than an hour, 23 people who arrived after us were served (1 group of 3 people, two of 6 and two of 4 people) the waitress mistreated us, and we went without dinner. Shameful. We certainly don't recommend this restaurant!
It fills up quickly, and gets pretty cramped (less so at weekday lunchtimes). The sandwiches are great - the best are the Autonomo (pork loin, mushrooms, green pepper), the Sarriegi (fried egg with homemade tomato sauce) and the Trini (tuna, anchovies and chili). A good bottle of cider or cane beer to accompany it, and you'll be delighted. The bread is from the best bakery in San Sebastian: Galparsoro, which incidentally is very close to Narrika, in the main street of the Old Donostiarra quarter.
