This place is awesome, without question and don't hesitate to visit. Just be warned that the beach s packed with a mix of locals and visitors, and the restaurants at the beach front are priced accordingly. Venture a block or more back and you will find more reasonably priced, and more authentic food.

Thank you Vicky for a wonderful Pinxto's hunt! We took our two little girls on the evening tour and it was a great family experience. The food was outstanding - even if Vicky's favourite bars weren't all open (Monday night). Vicky's local knowledge provided the perfect background for us to understand more about the Basque region and the Pinxto foods.... More

Andrew. Thank you for a lovely evening of wine and wisdom. We enjoyed sharing the wines you selected and talking with you about them around the table with new friends. We told our Tauck tour director about your shop so we're sure you will be seeing some more folks alerted to your offerings. Our best wishes to you as you... More

The Pinxto hunt with San Sebastián food was a standout in our travels through Europe. Our guide Agus was a local Pinxto genius, great for a laugh and incorporated local history and stories into a great evening. He showed us Pinxtos, local wines and bars my partner and I would never have found with our very limited Spanish speaking ability... More

I booked this months ago, and by the time we showed up in the gourmet shop of the hotel Maria Cristina in San Sebastián I was cursing myself. What was I thinking? I didn't want to spend the evening with a bunch of strangers. So if you might feel this way, let me assure you that it is totally fun.... More

Eli did a fantastic job teaching us a bit about San Sebastian, feeding us and even getting us a little drunk! My wife and I had a seriously fun time with Eli and the rest of the group trying food and drinks all around San Sebastian. Great time all around. I highly recommend you take the Pintxos hunting tour when... More

Went on the Pintos Tour with Agus. By chance all 4 couples in the tour were Aussies and this meant a lot of drinking. Agus took us to a range of bars from traditional to modern and we had a range of different Pintos paired with different ciders and wines. As they say, no one will go home hungry or... More

My wife and I are still talking about our evening of Pintxos hunting with Lourdes last week which will probably rank as one of the most memorable dining experiences we have ever had! The evening just flashed by as we sampled a variety of pintxos and wines in six different bars. We talked non stop about food and drink (and... More

If you go to San Sebastián you must do the Pintxo tour with San Sebastián Food it is very worthwhile. We had Lourdes as I guide, history teacher and fun master! We had a ball - learnt a lot, ate a lot and certainly drank a lot! Well put together tour and very informative.

Just had a great night on the Pintxos hunting tour. Went to great bars and our guide ordered off the blackboards and discovered some great pintxos that we would have never tried or found on our own. Met a great bunch of people in our small group of 7. Was tossing up between this and another cheaper private tour, but... More
