Hondarribia or Fuenterrabía, is one of the most characteristic villages near Donosti and undoubtedly one of the most beautiful. Located on the western shore of the Bay of Txingudi, it borders almost with France, being one of the border towns that separate Spain from France.
Both the center of the town, its port and the beach are worth visiting. But Hondarribia also has some of the best pintxo bars and restaurants in Guipuzcoa.

It is one of the references of Hondarribia’s cuisine. In it we can enjoy a pleasant meal at a good price. Its terrace is spectacular and on sunny days it is well worth having a drink there. To emphasize between its plates as much the Sea bass as the Turbot. If you have a sweet tooth you can not miss the caramelized torrija with rice pudding ice cream. Undoubtedly the best I’ve ever tasted.
