What to expect

With 18 Michelin Stars within a 25-kilometer radius, cider houses, gastronomic societies and hundreds of pintxo bars, no wonder why San Sebastian gained the fame of culinary capital of Europe!

This experience is not only about eating – it is about diving into the history of Basque culture, traditions and customs. What events, over the years, made Basques become food fanatics? What are the pillars of Basque cuisine? What were pintxos back in a day and what do they mean to us today? You'll get an answer for all these questions and many more for you to truly understand what it means to feel Basque.

You will switch from traditional and family-run to modern, award-winning bars. From seafood delicacies through elaborated meat pintxos, to finish with one of the best desserts in town. You will enjoy textures and flavors of the highest quality, seasonal ingredients turned into artsy creations recognized as haute cuisine ‘in miniature’. You will indulge yourself in San Sebastian social life hopping from bar to bar, laughing, chatting with vendors and making friends with locals. This is what we call ‘txikiteo’!

During the evening you will not only taste excellent dishes but also try a selection of our local, favorite drinks: beloved by Basques apple cider, crisp and sparkling ‘Txakoli’ and wines from Rioja. Moreover, the guide will give you a complete course on how to choose, order and eat pintxos. Let us tell you a secret – it isn’t as obvious as it appears to be!

Pintxo night out is a delicious and entertaining experience that leaves you with a handful of practical information and tips to make the most out of your stay in our beautiful city!
