This is the second part of my previous post about the best Pintxos in San Sebastian. As I said, San Sebastian has multiple Michelin Star Restaurants: Arzak, Akelarre, Martín Berasategui and Mugaritz (all with 3 stars)…. Besides these restaurants, in this post I want to talk about those that haven’t got a Michelin star but are still amazing restaurants… and not that expensive.

  • UROLA: Traditional food since 1948. 45 € avg. price. c/Fermín Calbetón, 20. +34 943 423 424
  • BETI – JAI: Means “Always party” in Basque. Specialty in sea food. Avg price: 40 €. c/ Fermín Calbetón, 22. 943 427 737
  • EGOSARI: Bar and restaurant with good food. Avg price: 35 €. c/Fermín Calbetón, 15. 943 428 210
  • ALDANONDO: Great meat (“chuletón” in Spanish). Avg price: 40 €. Daily menu: 28€. c/Euskal herria, 6. 943 422 852
  • ASTELENA: Excellent food, specially the foie. Avg. price: 40 €. Daily menu: 22€. c/Euskalherria, 3. 943 425 867
  • GANDARIAS: Excellent food and wine list. Definitely a top restaurant in Donosti (San Sebastian in Basque). Great pintxos aswell. c/31 de agosto, 23. 943-426362
  • UREPEL: Great food but quite expensive. Avg price: 70 €. Menu: 50€. Pº Salamanca, 3, 943 424 040
  • BRANKA: A classic with nice views of the bay (check the webcam). Avg. price: 50€. It’s a nice walk to get there. c/Eduardo Chillida, 11. +34 943 317 096
  • BERNARDO: Excellent sea food. c/Puerto, 7, 943 422 055

Update: Lucía, a reader of this blog, suggests two more places. THANK YOU Lucía!!:

  • ZUBEROA: Located in Oiartzun, 10 km away from San Sebastian. In my opinion it’s one of the best restaurants to eat good modern basque food
  • ASADOR PORTUETXE: a much more traditional restaurant than the previous one. Awesome fish and meat. It is usually overcrowded so it’s recommended to book a table in advance

Did I miss any special place?

Is there any place that should definitely be listed in this post? Have you got any suggestion to improve this blog? If so, please place a comment 🙂

  1. Pedro, I agree with all your suggestions!!

    But I would add Zuberoa. It is located in Oiartzun, 10 km away from San Sebastian. In my opinion it’s one of the best restaurants to eat good modern basque food.

    Another good one is Asador Portuetxe, a much more traditional restaurant than the previous one. Awesome fish and meat. It is usually overcrowded so it’s recommended to book a table in advance.
