Neighborhood was awesome! Food was great once we were able to figure out how to order. Tapas bars were abundant only issue was finding a place to stand.

This is by far the place to get pintxos in San Sebastián. I found so much food here that was expensive but of high quality. There were a lot of locals here as well so not just tourists!

All of them are very good, some of them more traditional others are more modern, some of them are a bit too expensive, specially the coolest ones (like El Fuego Negro and La Cuchara de San Telmo), others, usually the typical ones are cheaper (like Gandarias). Exceptional raw materials and the finest elaboration in any of the restaurants of the... More
