Our gastronomy is one of the main reasons why our guests come to our holiday rental apartments in San Sebastian.
Lots of them go to Arzak or Berasategui and most of them have lunch at least once at La Muralla restaurant. Bar Nestor, Akelarre, Rekondo and Kokotxa are places where lots of them go too.But there is something that all our guests do: go for Pintxos.

What’s a Pintxo? it’s a snack we eat in bars while hanging out friends or family. Usually people think that Pintxos and Tapas are the same, but there is a difference. Pintxos are much more elaborated. Tapas is the snack they give you for free when you order for a drink. With PIntxos it is not like that. We have to pay for each pintxo (snack) we eat and the price goes from 1 € to 3,50€.
For those who do not like going by themselves, we organise a pintxos tour on Friday evenings. We usually meet around 19:00 / 19:30 and the Pintxos Tour lasts more or less a couple of hours. We go to 6 different pintxos bars. All of them are at the old part of the city and we stay around 20 minutes in each bar. We have a drink, we eat a pintxo and we move to the next one. That’s the way we do our “poteo”.
These are some of the pictures we have taken on our pintxos tours.
