10/10 for service, presentation & professionalism. My favourite dishes were the roasted pigeon which had a lovely flavour and the gin & tonic with mint dessert. If you enjoy molecular gastronomy you will be bowled over by the menu as almost every dish sports some form of it. On the whole I found that there were too many intense flavours... More

Delicious Basque meal with impeccable service. Amazing attention to every little detail, and certainly a special dining experience. Tour of the kitchen after the meal was a real treat to see the incredible amount of work it takes to produce a meal of this quality. One of the best (and most expensive) meals of a lifetime... worth every cent. Would... More

There are times when you spend several hundred pounds/dollars/euros on a meal - or, for that matter, times when you spend only tens of pounds/dollars/euros on a meal - and feel utterly cheated, whether it be by the quality of the food, the service, the atmosphere, or a combination of the three. A meal at Martin Berasategui will not be... More

We would definately like to point out that the service in this restaurant went above and beyond. They even noticed that my friend was left handed!!! The creations were very nicely presented and my favorite was the foies gras with eel - You MUST try it!!!

Is this one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant? YES, YES and YES. The restaurant is about 20 minutes drive from S. Sebastian. ( Donostia for the locals) So start a tad early and don't be late to this temple of food. Mr., Berasategui has reached to the zenith of his art and is the best... More

when a city hosts 3 of the best 50 restaurants of the world, it's a blessing. we opted to the gourmet menue and were very happy with this. the wines by the glas were also OK, though we had to push a bit in the right direction. the wine pricing was very reasonable. after the real flop with the mugaritz...

We were lucky enough to visit the big three on a recent trip to San Sebastian and as the World's 50 predicted this one was my least favorite. While the food was nice (and I'll admit my husband liked it) the service was terrible. From the minute we walked in I thought the service was average; upon ordering we were... More

While planning for our 2-night trip to San Sebastian, we were undecided on which Michelin-starred restaurant to dine at (Arzak, Akelare or Martin Berasategui?). We finally made a reservation at MB after reading tripadvisor's reviews. Like most fine dining restaurants, service at MB was impeccable. The food was good but not the best as a lot of molecular cooking was... More
