studying in San Sebastion

by seross108

I will be in San Sebastion for two months, August and September, and am trying to figure out how much I need to spend on eating out. I am a 19 year old mostly vegetarian who needs to eat three times a day! I am imagining that I can eat breakfast at home inexpensively. Any suggestions for great for or lively eating environments or just cheap and good holes in the wall would be appreciated.

I couldn't believe that San Sabastian would even have vegetarian because their food is so utterly fantastic.

I Googled "San Sabastian, vegetarian" and there were many targets listed

I read a few of the remarks and it sounds like there are great places.

In retrospect, since San Sabastian does such a great job with the foods that I like and eat, why not vegetarian?

It's one of our favorite places and the food only makes it more so.

In spain you have what we call "menu del dia" at lunch time every restaurant offers you this option, it could cost between 10 and 15 euros and includes, an entry, a main dish, dessert, bread and a drink, afterwards I don´t think you´ll need a big dinner, you must know that lunch in Spain is between 13:00 and 15:00 and the people go for dinner at 22:00... Good luck and enjoy!!

Travel Tips for San Sebastián

PARTE VIEJA (Old Town)
In the...

by SirRichard

PARTE VIEJA (Old Town)

In the pedestrian old part of the city (north of the Boulevard Avenue) you can enjoy 'tapas' for a delicious original lunch. This is the way: go in a bar, ask for a drink and start choosing among the huge variety of small portins of seafood, chorizo, tortilla... Take the ones you want, and when you finish, tell the waiter what you had. Then, go to another bar (10 meters away) and repeat all the movements. After 3 or 4 bars you already had lunch!!

Nice restaurant with a panoramic view of SS!

by ilovespain about The restaurant at Hotel Mount Igueldo

While staying at Hotel Londres, one evening I went up to Hotel Mt. Igueido for dinner. The view of the La Concha Bay was magificient. The restaurant opened at 8:30 in the evening. But it wasn't very busy until 10PM. I had fish soup, tournedo rossini and a half bottle of wine. The tab came out to be 60 euro. It was well worth it. The service was attentive and friendly. Will definitely come back next time when I am in town!

Harbour

by andal13

Donostia has a small but nice harbour; along the docks there are several sea-food restaurants. At the end of the dock there is an interesting naval museum and an aquarium.

Donostia tiene un puerto pequeño pero muy lindo; a lo largo del muelle hay numerosos restaurantes. Alfinal del muelle hay un interesante museo naval y un acuario.

Plaza de Guipuzcoa

by mikey_e

In some pictures, especially those destined for tourist consumption, the Plaza de Guipuzcoa is made to look airy and larger than it actually is – as if it were not smack in the middle of the orderly Ensanche. It is bordered by Martzial and Arrasate in the part of the Ensanche closest to the Avenida de la Libertad, so it shouldn’t be too difficult for anyone to find if they are walking through this area (it is about a block east of Urbieta). It has a bit of a Plaza Mayor feel to it, but it is not the city’s Plaza Mayor (that function is fulfilled, rather, by the Plaza de la Constitución in the Parte Vieja). One reason why it is not the Plaza Mayor is that there is a pretty little garden in the centre of the square, replete with fountain and gazebo. This is frequented largely by children with their parents and the noise from the surrounding pedestrian mall makes it even harder to pretend as if this were a place were you could sit and relax away from the hustle of the urban setting. That, of course, you can do at one of the many cafés that ring the square. Although three sides of the Plaza have various shops and cafés, the fourth side is an official building housing the province’s Diputación, or governing council. Again, this isn’t an official tourist site, just another place where you can enjoy the city’s leisurely attitude.

The pearl of the Basque Country

by Peret

Donosti (San Sebastian), is a charmer city. As the other parts of basque country, is not to much touristic, maybe for the political conflict, i don't know. But the buildings, the beaches, the landscape of the arounds, the parks in the city...All have a charm that will make your visit unforgettable.
Take a walk, you won't be disappointed.
Donosti és una ciutat encantadora. Com altres parts del país Basc, no és massa turística, potser pel conflicte polític. Però els edificis, els parcs, la platja, tot allà té un atractiu que fa la visita inolvidable. Feu un passeig, no us decepcionareu.

TXORI TXORIA (bird)

Hegoak ebaki banizkio / if i cut their wing
nerea izango zen, / he colud be mine
ez zuen aldegingo. / he couldn't scape
Bainan, honela / but in this way
ez zen gehiago txoria izango / he couldn't be a bird
eta nik... / And I
txoria nuen maite / loved the bird

Song of Mikel Laboa, basque singer
