    Pintxo tour at Casa Vergara

    Located next to Santa María’s church, in the heart of the pintxo’s golden mile, Casa Vergara reopens its doors with new owners and a new identity. With a nice decoration and a renewed impetus, the place is ideal to have a drink with a pintxo, either going on a pintxos route or before lunch or dinner, as an aperitif. The offer focuses around cod, main star at our ports and flagship of our typical cuisine, so we can find it cooked in multiple ways. Quality is… let’s say medium range, but prices tend to high range… get your own conclusions. Tip: Better choose those optimal detected pintxos or ask for…

    Chile meets Donostia at El Bombín

    el bombin reyes catolicos

    Reyes Católicos shines again after a while being overshadowed by the hipsterhood of Gros. But this pedestrian area full of terraces is still a good idea to spend a good time drinking or eating something in a quieter ambiance, far from the masses. As the bar is run by people from Valparaíso, you can add to your drink some typical Chilean food. Pisco is always available but piscosour only under request. Fridays and Saturdays offers theme Nikkei dinners -Japanese with Peruvian influences- so, fun is guaranteed. Easy recipes but tasty, made with lot of care and, something hard to find in our city, served with a smile, that luxury item…

    India and Middle East at Chutney Gastrobar


    NEW UPDATE (February 2020): Reopened and working as usual, great! UPDATE: Non operative since August 2019. Their Facebook profile announces a possibly delivery food service in the future. Sad closing. In Amara, more precisely close to Plaza Easo, we can find this small but recommendable place. The staff masters several cuisines – also several languages including English – so you can transport yourself at a snap to desert or monsoon places, or, at least, to somewhere more exotic than usual. The formula is simple: after being accommodated – you’ll rarely get the VIP table but don’t worry, the bar is quite comfortable- they will kindly explain you the menu and dish…

    Craft beers at Baga Biga Faktoria

    The craft beer boom had to lead later or sooner in the opening of specialized places where to taste them. Baga Biga Faktoria has just opened in April 2019 and offers a wide selection of tap craft beers, packaged as well. By June, their own beer, called Baga Biga -of course!- will be ready to go. If you find a table available, there’s also a small menu with eight simple options prepared right there at the kitchen. The price range is wide but tends to expensive -obviously, comparing with alcohol average prices in Spain-: small size (0,20l from €2) up to an special and imported 0,75l that rounds €14. However, you’ll have…

    Wines and something else at n.06 store, bar & restaurant

    n06 San Sebastián

    A nice option in the city center to enjoy an special wine. Two options available: stay at the bar having a drink with some cold assortments or going into the inside restaurant for lunch or dinner with a quite more sophisticated menu. Suitable for an aperitif, possibly a bit more expensive than others, but quality here is remarkable. Before leaving, some basque products for sybarites and a fine wine selection are available for sale.
