Overview
Figuring out where to eat the best pintxos (Basque tapas) in San Sebastián can be tough, especially for first-time visitors. Don’t go it alone; instead, let a local guide show you where to eat, while providing cultural and historical context—as well as recommendations—you wouldn’t get if exploring independently for a relaxed introduction to Basque cuisine.
