BAR PACO BUENO
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!
Drink with a glass of the local, extravagantly poured, Basque sidra.
Deep fried gambas
The other pintxos are ok but fairly average, so it's best to enjoy the gambas, sidra or the slightly sparkling local txakoli wine, the friendly atmosphere and try some other pintxos elsewhere in the old town.
The buzzing crowd spreads out on to the noisy street during busy periods.
Calle Mayor, 6, 20003 Parte Vieja de Donostia (San Sebastian)
