San Sebastian eating

Jump to last reply

I have traveled quite a bit in Europe but this will be my first trip to San Sebastian - we will be there on a Mon - Thurs. I have been researching and am feeling a bit overwhelmed and intimidated by the abundance of food options. I tried finding a group pinxtos tour but have only found private guide options. We really wanted a group experience partly for the social aspect as well as for some guidance in chosing from the overwhelming variety of pinxtos and pinxtos bars.

I speak some spanish - when my adult daughter and I begin our pinxtos crawl will others in the bar interact with us? She does not drink alcohol, will a glass of water be acceptable? I have read many of the establishments have their choices written on blackboards - I'm thinking that may be a bit difficult for me and I don't want to pester the busy servers with english translations.

Obviously our time is limited and the choices seem unlimited - we will be staying in the old city. We are not really fans of "cutting edge" cuisine but do enjoy food. We probably prefer to sit down (outside is best) rather than eat standing up. So I am looking for a "short list" of places to try, restaurants as well as pinxtos bars. Our budget is moderate - a menu del dia would be acceptable. Be assured I have read thru past posts but I thought if I specified my parameters it might narrow down the suggestions and choices. Many thanks.
