Goiz Argi

There are a handful of San Sebastián “musts,” like booking a surf lesson, realizing surfing is not for you, and heading to Goiz Argi afterward for a grand consolation prize: grilled seafood. The tender baby octopus is a fan favorite here, with its smoky char marks and garlic lemon sauce we could drink off the plate. But the main attraction at Goiz Argi is the excellent shrimp skewer coated in a vinegary tomato and pepper sauce that soaks into its sliced baguette. It’s a simple pintxo with enough acid and brininess to make you crave three more, or however many it takes to heal a bruised ego after a first surf lesson.
