I found it to be like any old town in coastal Spain, except more well to do. Go to a cider house instead, or to Biarritz (French Basque)

Located at the eastern end of the Playa de la Concha and below Mount Urgull this area is full of narrow crisscross alleys packed with bars and restaurants with a spectacular basilica and Plaza and touristy shops it's a great place to spend a few hours at a time.

The San Sebastian experience is about the Pintxos and the old town provides some of the best bars to experience the food accompanied by wine or beer.
