Had a great time trying a small samples from place to place... Headed to places that are more crowded and you won't go wrong :-)

After traveling from England all down the coast of france is was great I be back in Spain and enjoy great food and wine at such cheap prices. Loads of Pixtos bars and a prefect way to spend a few hours over lunch and into the afternoon.

The beast part of the city to go "pintxo" hopping. Really quiet in the mornings, where almost only the delivery guys can be seen around and very alive from the afternoon on, even at night, specially on the weekends.

The pintxo bars are a must - Baztan and Bartolo are great for serving a range of affordable pintxo, but it isn't difficult to wander around and find somewhere that has something you like. Fuego Negro is a really interesting bar, but pricey. Lovely churches here and wonderfully connected to the port and San Telmo. Lovely place. Essential San Sebastian... More

My husband and I will never forget the experience of trying pintxos in San Sebastian, particularly this part of the city. It was a cold, rainy evening in July when we went, but the crowds were thriving and quite convivial! It was really fun with our group of friends picking out the different styles of pintxos and pairing it with... More

The best place for tapas and pintxo in the Basque Country but also the charm of the old city ! the Basque culture is everywhere and people are very friendly ! A visit to La Parte Vieja is a must when travelling in this area.

While there are many areas to San Sebastian, Parte Vieja is where most people (including myself) tend to gravitate towards for food and drink. There is a very large concentration of bars and restaurants and you shouldn't just come here for food in the evening but come during the daytime and enjoy the many independent shops. If you want the... More

This is the best place to stay when visiting San Sebastian. You're close to all the amazing pinxto bars, cute boutiques, two beaches,museums, restaurants, the underground market, and a great hike. We stayed on Calle 31 de agosto (August 31st Street-- weird name for a street, but it has historical significance). Even though we were just two girls, we felt... More
