San Sebasrian restaurants open on Mondays?

I did a search and didn't come up with any answers so I am hoping someone can help me

Are there any good restaurants in San Sebastian that are open on Sundays and Mondays?

I will be doing pintxos Sunday and Monday day but I can't find any places I know open on Sunday and Monday for dinner.

Thanks in advance

  1. Go to Urepel, open Monday evenings. Reserve ahead if you can (we were lucky to get a table by having the hotel call the same day). You may need to ask about the tasting menu - it was not on the English menu, only the Spanish menu (I've learned to ask for one English, one Spanish and compare!). On the night we were there it was only 50 Euros pp for a really good and substantial tasting including house wine (2 bottles for 4 people) and a "champagne" cocktail to start. Service was a little terse and slow to begin but warmed up as it became clear we were appreciating the food. Traditional Spanish decor. Jeans OK but please no shorts or trainers.

    For Sunday, lots of good choices in the old town. Be sure to hit Goiz Argi for the brocheta de gambas to begin with, then whatever strikes your fancy (it is all delicious, nice owners, great atmosphere) and Le Cuchara de San Telmo -- amazing meat dishes, especially the foie and the braised bits -- we didn't get to anything else on our visit. The old town can be a litle confusing, so make sure you have a map and know where to look -- Cuchara de San Telmo is at the end of a little side street and easy to miss - look for the beer brand Keler 18 on their awning.
