Picture this: you've walked the length of San Sebastián's three beaches, and you've worked up quite an appetite. Only problem is, you're two beaches away from the pintxo bars you know and love—in Antiguo. Antiguo has its share of good spots, both new and classic. Bernardina falls somewhere in between.
You can judge a pintxo bar's commitment to excellence often by its ham and wine, and Bernardina boasts one of Spain's top bodegas' legs hanging as well as a wine list that is distinctly upper crust. Their pintxo selection is far from avant garde, but it's pleasantly edible and a solid spot to either snack or sit down for a full dinner. Always with a good crowd.
