A  UK poll carried out by consumer champions Which? has given San Sebastian, in northern Spain, top marks for its food culture, range of restaurants and its overall qualities as a holiday destination, placing it ahead of  traditionally foodie favorites NY and Paris.

The panel of judges, a collection of food critics and travel writers, gave each destination points in 30 different categories which included the quality and range of food, the gastronomic culture, local markets and the general appeal of the place as a holiday resort.
After looking into the choice at every price range, from Michelin starred restaurants to budget eateries serving local produce, San Sebastian came top with 81 out of 100 followed by Tokyo, Japan with 78 per cent and Sydney, Australia with 77.
As spokesman said: "On holiday, the quality of the food you eat can make all the difference. There’s no quicker route to the heart of a destination than through your stomach. The food you eat and the people you share it with are part of what makes the experience so deliciously memorable."
And it seems the old saying has proved right for San Sebastian this time, being its food scene described as 'fiercely distinct, passionately produced and on the gastronomic cutting edge”.
