Eating the first ice cream of the season: One of our spring and summer traditions is to eat the wonderful ice cream of Donostia. A ice cream cone or a tub of ice cream?

You’re in San Sebastián! … The foodie Mecca, the crème de la crème of good eating and finger-licking cuisine. Here you'll find whatever you want, from Michelin stars (did you know that San Sebastián is the city with most Michelin stars per square metre in the world?) to pintxo bars, vegetarian options, cider houses, restaurants serving international cuisine... As many suggestions as there are colours. Don’t waste time, consult our Restaurant Guide.
You still have time! There is no tradition more typically Basque than going to a cider house. This means tasting some of the best Basque ciders that are poured directly from the barrel to the shout of Txotx! This custom began as a private tasting session among wholesalers who came to the cider houses to pick the best ciders. Over time, this custom really caught on and became the most famous gastro-event in the Basque Country.
