Right on the best location of san sebastian: la concha beach
Unbeatable location in San Sebastian for visiting one of the grandest cities on the Cantabrian coast and tasting its renowned pintxos and tapas. Book our rooms and suites with views and enjoy a privileged viewpoint over La Concha beach.
EATING PINTXOS IN THE OLD CITY
A visit to the bars in the old part of the city to taste some of the delicious pintxos is also a very typical tradition. Enjoy all the small dishes packed with flavour and great cuisine. We present the best bars to try if it’s your first visit to the city.
What people usually do is go from bar to bar eating a pintxito with a drink. Our recommendation is you drink txakoli, a young white wine produced in Getaria. A delight!
31 de Agosto Street
- Bar Martinez A bar that’s been here forever, where the quality of the cooking combines with great service from the friendly staff. Be sure to try the gamba gabardina (prawns in batter)
- Bar La Cepa. Kind and helpful staff and a great choice of pintxos make this classic bar a must. Iberian ham, tapas and very elaborate pintxos
- Bar Gandarias. Incomparable quality and fantastic service. Essentials include the sirloin pintxo, foie gras, brochettes, and especially the duck brochette. I recommend ordering the Duo (goat cheese wrapped in bacon served on roasted pepper and toast)
- A Fuego Negro. Something more avant-garde. Experimental cuisine for lovers of new flavours. Try the mini-hamburger and duck salad
San Jerónimo Street
- Bar Gambara A pintxos bar to make your mouth water. Discerning diners will appreciate the high-quality ingredients. Croissants stuffed with ham, varieties of mushrooms prepared in a thousand different ways, baby cuttlefish and chistorra sausage in pastry
- Bar Txepetxa. Anchovies are the stars of the show in this classic bar in the old town. We recommend the anchovies with spider crab cream. Really good!
- Bar Zeruko One of our favourites. Traditional and elaborate, avant-garde pintxos combine in a bar which is always crowded
