Where to Eat: San Sebastian Restaurants

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.
