Mussels and octopus ready to serve
Octopus two ways, another octopus, plus ham/mushroom and pepper/sardine/olive
We continue on our pintxo crawl (it is my birthday) and, at the next stop, have a glass of wine as we watch the diners inside and the passing traffic in the street. The sausages on baguette look good, but we're full
The next night, we decide to try San Sebastian fine dining and wander the streets of Old Town in the afternoon, reading menus posted outside the restaurants. We choose La Muralla and return in the evening for an incredible experience.
We start with Iberian ham cut by hand and mushroom and fungi ravioli.

The starter is followed by roasted hake on confit potatoes and sliced squid in black ink.

And, for desert, baked cheesecake and a Basque cheese plate.

At the end, a glass of local liquor for the happy diners.
Wow, we have to do this more often! And, we do!
For our final dinner in San Sebastian, we wander back into Old Town and pick another pinxtos restaurant for great assorted plates of ham, vegetables, shrimp, sausages, and cod.
Final pinxtos stop
We then wander through Old Town and stop for a glass of wine at a familiar spot, before heading back to our hotel.
The walk back through Old Town and along the promenade is beautiful and we enjoy the sound of the water in the bay and the sights of the city as we stroll along.

Along the promenade
What a great city!
