    While in San Sebastian, head for the old town/old quarter section. This area is packed with bars along its narrow, pedestrian-only streets. Go with a group and make your way to the Tapas Bars, where you sample a few appetizers along with a beer for a short-time before moving onto the next bar. The atmosphere is new and constantly changing as you go from bar to bar and it will undoubtedly lead to a memorable night!

    Very cool town with a surf beach on one side and a protected beach on the other. The town has two scenic lookouts that provide a view of the entire area

    You really shouldn't stray from the local food, but if you hate it (which I doubt you will) or if you really crave Italian, this is the place to go.
    It's a simple setting but it makes you fell like you're in italy, with checkered tablecloths and murals galore.
    Fresh, homemade pasta is their specialty, and it's delicious.

    Very casual, usually filled with big groups celebrating something. When you enter, the first thing you'll notice is the wall lined with what look tapped wine barrels. That's where you'll line up to fill your glass with some cidra.
    The first time I ate here, there were several raucous parties that eventually, as the night went on, started competing for what seemed to be the title of best singing group. We almost got caught up in the singing too! It was a great time!
    MAKE RESERVATIONS!

    Favorite Dish: The txuleta is a must if you go here and you eat meat. It's a big piece of beef that you won't regret ordering. The lemon sorbet in champagne dessert is delicious and light after such a hearty meal.
