Living history of Gros
The original business was founded in 1924, run by a family that had a network of wine cellars throughout the city that were dedicated to the sale of wine..
Gradually these premises became informal “pinchos” and “chiquiteo” bars in neighborhoods such as Parte Vieja, Gros, Sagüés, Amara Viejo, Antiguo and Loiola.
Miguel and Pili reopen the doors of the Bodega Donostiarra in Gros.
The Bodega in 1975
With the arrival of Miguel and Pili, the first pintxos began to be served and, little by little, the bodeguilla became very popular with the locals and the workers of the numerous workshops in the area.
Later, with the construction of the Moneo cubes, the business extended its name beyond the neighborhood of Gros, becoming one of the most popular and beloved places by all the people of San Sebastian.
Miguel Montorio reinvents the old “bodeguilla”.
After a year of closure, Miguel Montorio takes over La Bodega with the support of Miguel and Pili who teach the new kitchen team how to prepare the menu faithfully.
The offer is expanded with new dishes to share, maintaining the essence of the previous era, taking care of the local product that is prepared in a simple and traditional way.
Tables and portions provoke the “meeting” of our customers. In a short time, the Bodega Donostiarra has once again become a favorite place for the local public.
