It’s not the city’s best-known Basque restaurant, but nearly two decades years of hard work have certainly paid off here. The bar at Lagunak has a range of almost 30 tapas, as well as good mini-casseroles, all made under the watchful eye of owner Peter Bellver, a native of San Sebastián, the Mecca of tapas. 'This is a traditional bar, deeply rooted in the culture of pintxos,' he says. Though not innovative, the pintxos are very well made. The croquettes filled with stewed crab are a perfect example; you can catch them freshly made at 1.30pm and 8.30pm.
