Food is an important part of the culture of the Basque Country and cooking is a usual topic of conversation and a good excuse for meeting and celebrating. Breakfast and dinner are normally lighter meals, while lunch or the meal served in the middle of the day is the most important. Mealtimes are normally as follows: breakfast from 06:30 to 10:00, lunch from 13:00 to 15:00 and dinner from 21:00 to 22:30.
The Bars in Oñati are distinguished by their specialities in tapas or assorted pintxos, sandwiches and set main courses. The new trend that some establishments offer (one evening per week, usually Thursdays) is the “pintxo-pote”, one pintxo served with a glass of wine or beer.
