Where to Eat:
6 Sumptuous San Sebastian Restaurants

BY Spain | Basque Country, Rioja

Every journey has a flavour, every place a taste. Whether it’s a Michelin-starred meal, a multi-course extravaganza or fresh fish at a seaside cantina, we believe you can’t really call yourself a cultural adventurer if you don’t embrace the local food and drink. In the latest installment of our Where to Eat series, we recommend a few of our favourite San Sebastian restaurants where you can do just that.

Spoil Your Senses

From vibrant Pamplona to award-winning vineyards, the ever-changing landscapes along our Rioja Biking trip are often as dramatic and inspiring as the architecture—and in a region on the cutting edge of design, that’s saying something.

A Few of Our Other Favourites
San Sebastian restaurants, Mugaritz

On its website, Mugaritz says, “At Mugaritz, eating is a path to experience, a path scattered with histories, aromas, textures, flavours, incredible sounds, provocations, uncertainties, games, memories, desires and numerous other pleasurable stimuli.” We say it’s a path worth travelling.

Closed Sunday evening, all day Monday. Located in old part of town.
