The old part of town is where most to the foodie action is. Lines of pedestrianised streets with ample bars and tapas (or pinxtos) bars. Go to the many where all the locals hang out, don't be put off by the crowds, muscle your way...More
Most Spanish cities have a cool old town. San Seb’s is steps from the sea and well worth exploring. There are plenty of Tapa Bars and some Top Notch Restaurants some of which are even Michelin rated. Bodegon Alejandro did the dinner trick for us...wow!
The Old Town has a very high concentration of places to eat the famous pintxos, to savour Basque cuisine and to enjoy, as well as participate in the almost ritualistic promenade (paseo) of the "natives" especially before dinner time. An experience really enriching in all...More
We spent 3 weeks touring Spain and Portugal and old town in San Sebastian was our favorite destination. The tapa bars were so colorful and it was hard to decide which pintxos to eat. The old town is a mix of souvenior shops, restaurants and...More

San Sebastián as a whole was a great experience. The streets are extremely clean, people are orderly and respectful and it seemed that everyone was having a good time. We never once saw any rowdy drunken people being lost or obnoxious. The pinxtos crowd seem...More
Old Town San Sebastian really counts its history as starting (for the most part) post-1816 when the French and the forces allied against the French nearly burnt the entire place to the ground (people spared hardly any better). Some of the Basque feisty-ness in their...More
I'd agree with Marylit20. We went to Petritegi. It was very good. The tour was excellent and there is a huge restaurant which is busy towards the end of the week and at weekends for lunch. Definitely worthwhile!
As it has been stated by other people the small streets of San Sebastian are as safe as any other small street. Use your common sense, don't go flaunting about that you are a tourist. Respect your surroundings. You can get... More
As it has been stated by other people the small streets of San Sebastian are as safe as any other small street. Use your common sense, don't go flaunting about that you are a tourist. Respect your surroundings. You can get hurt anywhere in the world if you act stupid. All the best.
