Less expensive but spectacular options in San Sebastian

I wil be traveling to Basque region in June. I've read through the board and am wowed by the fantastic 3* options and Pinxos. I was wondering about other options (say, 1* or unstarred or not to miss)

Our plan is below. The question is what to do Monday.

SAT: We are meeting in Bidarray, France and staying at Hotel Ostape, which seems real nice. We will either eat there or go to Hotel Restaurant Arce for dinner.

SUN: Lunch at Akelarre in San Sebastian. This is obviously our blow-out meal. We can only really afford one of these. Debated here, Azark, Mugaritz, etc. but decided on Akelarre. Hope it's good.

SUN night: Pinxos

MON: San Sebastian. HERE'S THE QUESTION. What should we do. We could do a nice meal, but not 140 euro per person nice. So what's a good option if we're not going to go to another 3* restaurant? We could do a nice lunch and Pinxos again for dinner. Debating going to Hondarriba for the meal but sleeping in SS again.

SO... What would you do for your other "great meal" in San Sebastian understanding that the other 3* restaurants are not at our price point?

TUES: Bilbao for the museum. Any reasonable dining options would be appreciated.

WED: Fly home in the AM

Thanks much!
