San Sebastian Ideas

I am taking my fiance to San Sebastian for our honeymoon. Have any of you been there recently? I would love to hear reports regarding food and other activities.

I'd love to go. Believe it's one of the best foodie towns in Europe.

Yeah, that is our main draw. There are tons of great restaurants in and around the city.

IIRC Bourdain visited on one of his shows.

And Bilbao is a short train ride away if you're into art/architecture.

Yeah, he did a Spain episode on no reservations, which looked awesome. I've heard the Guggenheim in Bilbao is supposed to be great, but hadn't considered an architectural tour as well. I'll look into it. Thank!

try this site, it's excellent:

http://www.todopintxos.com/

they have some maps of suggested pinxtos tours (pinxtos is basque for tapas).

There's a place called Txepexta that's pretty awesome.

You'll mostly want to drink the fizzy white wine that's the local specialty, but if you feel like cocktails there's an awesome tiny pinxtos place in the Gros neighborhood, Garbola Bar, where the bartender fancies himself a cocktail specialist and makes elaborate mojitos, etc. with his own homemade syrups while blasting 80s music.

Many thanks. The website is awesome and Txepextra looks great, especially because I am a bit anchovy fan.

San Sebastian is tactically very good for a honeymoon. Go to Eibar, order a pair of shotguns. Extra credit if 28 bore. You pick the maker. Braised
