Arenales feels like an oasis from the busy, standing-room-only pintxo madness of the Old Town. The owners greet you right away when you walk in the door, and you can find a short menu on a chalkboard that’s hanging above the bar with a bunch of different small plates. 

The chef-owner always picks up fresh produce from the market in the mornings, and the whole philosophy here is less is more—a prime example being the roasted carrots that come served over labneh and garnished with torn herbs. Definitely explore the wine list, as they have an impressive selection of natural bottles that are hard to find elsewhere in San Sebastián.
