For this visit to San Sebastian in early December, we concentrated on pintxos rather than sit down meals. We started our pintxo tour in the Parte Viejo (old town). We always prefer hot pintxos as they are made to order. There is not a problem with the pintxos on the bar but you may eat too much bread!
We tend to have no more than two pintxos and a glass of wine or beer per bar, so as, not to be too full, to early. The best time to go to the pintxo bars is 8.30 pm - 10.30 pm.
We stayed in the Hotel Niza, set opposite Playa de La Concha.

Cádiz is a city and port in south-west Spain. It’s the capital of the province of Cádiz, one of eight which make up the autonomous community of Andalucia.
The city is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain and one of the oldest in western Europe. Despite its unique site, on a narrow slice of land surrounded by the sea‚ Cádiz is, in most respects, a typically Andalusian city with a wealth of attractive vistas and well-preserved historical landmarks.
The older part of Cádiz within the remnants of the city walls is commonly referred to as the Casco Antiguo (old town).
This is a very traditional, social club, old school style Pintxo bar. There are always many local families here, the young to the very old mixing amongst the tourists. The bar is big on boxing, rugby and Basque rowing with lots of old memorabilia on the surrounding walls.
It is run by owner Paco Bueno (who was a boxer in his younger days ) and his sons.
It's lively, entertaining and a friendly atmosphere.
The specialties are deep fried seafood like calamares, but the prized dish is the deep fried gambas, you need to wait for them to come up piping hot, but be quick as they are soon snapped up!
