The very first thing that you have to decide is: what do I want to eat? San Sebastian is known for its pintxo bars, either on the Old Town or downtown. I, personally, am normally not of those who go eat pintxos, I eat the pintxo, just in case, before lunch, around 11:30 AM. To then have lunch at 2:00 PM with the plates we want to try out.
