the Turbut was absolutely the best fish we've ever had, the crab was brilliant and so was the tuna starter, bread was very good an dolive oil great, and the cheese ice cream was amazing. The cocochas were good, but i guess this is an aquired taste, and i'm not there yet. absolutely amazing and great VFM

Elkano is located in Getaria which is a small town about 25 KM west of San Sebastian, where we visited recently. I had seen Elkano referred to as one of the best fish and seafood restaurants in Spain, so we decided to eat there. We weren’t disappointed. Elkano is a great example of a wonderful family restaurant that doesn't need... More

We had lunch here. The lady of the house looked a bit stern, but was very friendly in the end. The cuisine is focused on seafood. A lot of food is prepared on the wood grill outside. Excellent quality. The atmosphere is a bit "bourgeois" but the food is fine and to-the-point. We drank an excellent white wine from nearby... More

If your reading this well then you probably have already heard about how great and worthwhile it is to visit Elkano. Everything you heard about Elkano is true. What you may not know is how passionate and caring the staff is. The son of the original owner now caries on the tradition of this great restaurant. He created for us... More

If you are in Bask Region of Spain, please do not be bothered to get to Getaria, very close to San Sebastian, and to try Elkano, a fish restaurant. Is it a fish restaurant really? I do not think so. Because, I did not eat any fish in this restaurant, but sea and ocean. If Elkano is a fish restaurant,... More

In an interview in VOGUE Thomas Keller called Elkano "the best fish restaurant in the world." High praise from the chef of the French Laundry but I think he is right. Located in the pretty fishing village of Getaria about 25 kilometres west of San Sebastián, the restaurant serves only the freshest fish available from the area, much of it... More

This is certainly the best fish restaurant in the world, if you like your seafood completely fresh and totally unadorned, served without any distracting frills and from-frous. We drove down from San Sebastián only to eat here and visit a txakoli winery. Worth it, and how. Loved, loved the kokoxtas pil pil, the specialty jowls cooked 3 ways which just... More

If you are looking for a first quality product and probably taste the best fish and seafood done on a grill, this is the right place. Tasty and well cooked. We started by a sample of hake "Kokotxas" cooked in different ways and then some of us had a "wild beach grilled Turbot" while my wife and I chose the... More
