“Best pintxos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Full of character, has absolutely the best pintxo bars. Great atmosphere any time of the day, especially in the evening when everyone gets out for a drink and bite to eat!

“Idyllic - yes, tourists - yes.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Old Town is really nice and it has many good restaurants. Unfortunately it's slowly becoming a tourist trap. Good food and excellent Pintxos are available, but pick your restaurants carefully... Prices are going up and locals are fading away. Still worth a visit, check out the churches and local marina.

“Stunning city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

SS is awesome! This part of the town is so rich and interesting!

You can walk around for ages - just stopping by in different places for a cold beer and some pintxos - sitting outside the bars watching the time goes by!

There is so much so see and enjoy - my favourite bit was this courtyard that reminded me of Piazza de San Marco in Venice!

It can get quite crowed - but if you are on holiday it is something you have sometimes to put up with!

“To visit San Sebastian and not the old city is just plain dumb. . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

The highlight of San Sebastian, by far, is it's viejo ciudad (I don't know Basque). My wife and I enjoyed exploring the alleyways, sampling the abundant gourmet treats of the numerous Tapas bars. Wow. Lots of great shopping opportunities too. Loved the infectious spirit of the place and local people! Go, have fun and enjoy!

“Great pinchos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Great buildings and hundreds of bars selling the best pinchos ever. You pay more than other parts of town, but food is fresh and well presented. A must if in San Sebastien.
