Pintxos - Toldotxo


Zarautz is a great place to try some pintxos. The bartops in our local pubs and restaurants are chock-full of them! Experience the local atmosphere while enjoying the gastronomy of Zarautz in miniature.




Our local pintxo: 'TOLDOTXO'

Battered hake, patatas panaderas (sauteed or baked potato slices), green pepper, alioli, and a bread and ham crumble. Created by Karlos Arguiñano together with his children, this is Zarautz’s most representative pintxo and a tantalising snack that will delight the most demanding palates.

The name is a play on two words: ‘toldo’, the name for the iconic striped beach huts, and ‘pintxo’, the name for these miniature gastronomical delights. The main ingredient, hake, showcases the seafaring character of this coastal town.

Wash it down with a glass of txakoli and delight all your senses!
