Sidrerías, or cider houses, are traditionally only open between mid-January and the end of April, when the cider is ready for sale. Our favorite—and one of the Basque Country's oldest—is Zelaia, just inland from San Sebastián, in the town of Hernani. The simple interior has cider barrels out back and a dining room with rows of wood tables, but don't be fooled by the humble surroundings: The cider, food, and atmosphere are unbeatable. As in all traditional sidrerías, Zelaia serves a set four-course meal that includes a cod omelet followed by fried cod with green peppers, grilled steak, and to finish, a plate of Idiazabal cheese with walnuts and quince jelly. The whole thing, of course, is washed down with lots of cider.—Guy Fiorita

Open daily January 21 to April 30, 8 pm to 12 am.
