You have probably already done this, but here are CAMPSA's recommendations within 25km of Pamplona. The great Basque restaurants are within 75km of Pamplona. A bit further afield and more off the beaten track, but Enrique Martinez of Maher in the Navarran town of Citruenigo (according to CAMPSA about 83km from Pamplona) is doing some delicious and interesting things with food, especially vegetables.

There is now a big creative pintxo/ tapas revolution in Pamplona with places like Bar Melbourne, Bar Gaucho, Baserri in San Nicolás St.

If red meat is your thing go to Asador Epeleta, in Lekunberri, for one of the best charcoal grilled rumpsteak on the bone.

Ah, and for one of the best tortillas, Kasino in Lesaka, but you have to order it in advance when making the reservation.

I will be travelling in Spain in mid-/late-May and will have to hit both Pamplona and then Barcelona. Anyone have any recommendations for good, not too expensive places to eat/drink in those areas and cities? I will also be wandering in the countryside as well.

Any recommendations appreciated!
Gracias! :cool:

What are the best places to eat in Pamplona during Running of the Bulls? What are the "must try" foods?

A bit late now but during San Fermin Mcdonalds and Burger King are probably your best bet! I say that only half in jest, if you're drinking half as much as the locals you'll want something to soak it all up and trying to get any significant amount of food down your neck is difficult without resorting to fast food. :biggrin:
