Private pintxo tour

big flavor, small size
San Sebastian has every right to be incredibly proud of its culinary heritage, and going out for pintxos is a fun and delicious experience. Pintxos or Basque tapas, are small morsels of food and people will typically visit three or four bars, sampling a different dish in each place. Originally pintxos were held together by a toothpick but nowadays there are all sorts of variations and they are best enjoyed with a wine, beer or a glass of txacolí - the lightly sparkling wine typical of the Basque country. We offer you a funny and informal way to discover this part of our gastronomical coulture taking you to our favourite 5 pintxo bars carefully picked for you.

Itinerary

It all started here

When the bars and wine houses that abound in our cities started to offer small snacks as a way to earn customer loyalty…but it was a man named Aranburu who came up with the idea of putting together an anchovy, an olive and some chili peppers with a small skewer. Named the “Gilda”, it was an instant hit. This new skewered invention became known as “banderilla” after the spiky wooden sticks used in bullfighting, and  as later simplified into the name “pintxo”.

Pintxo hopping

Walk through the old part of Donostia and eat in 5 of the best establishments in the city, from the most traditional to the most avant-garde. In each of them we can enjoy a pintxo and a drink looking for the perfect combination between our famous pintxos and your favorite drink: wine, txakoli, cider, beer.

Pintxo hopping

We continue with our funny and original way to explore Basque cuisine. Every bar, restaurant and café offers something different. There are elaborated and sophisticated haute-cuisine pintxos, a reflection of the chef’s creativity. Others opt for tradition with typical recipes featuring meat, fish, vegetables… there are pintxos out on bars that diners can pick up with their hands, pintxos that have to be ordered from the kitchen, cold pintxos  and hot pintxos…
