Eating in Martin’s restaurant is not only enjoying the most fabulous food you can find in Europe, it is something else. You experience the delicacy of the presentation, the environment, the views, the decoration of the restaurant, the exquisite flower arrangement of the entrance hall, in brief, the excellence of one of the best restaurants in the world.

The meal was super fabulous and all 14 taster courses were perfect. The sommelier recommended some fantastic wines and a truly wonderful Spanish Brandy called Ximenez Spinola. Would recommend this for all. It was my birthday meal and Martin came out and greeted us and even gave me a plate with a wonderful message on it which I took away.... More

Maybe the best 3 star Michelin restaurant meal we ever had up to today. We are comparing with the 9 in Paris 1 in Rome 1 in Florence 2 in Monaco 2 in San Sebastián 1 in Bilbao 1 in Chicago 2 in Napa 1 in San Francisco. All the plates and service were a 10 from start to finish.

Of the four Michelin star rated restaurants we have dined at in San Sebastián, this one is our favourite elegant dining experience ... That dreams are made of. Others were fun and approachable, classic cuisine, molecular ... But this restaurant was like finding your stride. Like a good day at work when you get a lot accomplished or a great... More

We took advantage of all three Michelin star restaurants while in San Sebastian, but of all three Martin was the most impressive and delicious. The wait staff was impeccable from start to finish, down to the angle of the forks and knives. Though they do not have to speak English by any means, their control over the language was fantastic...

I chose the degustation menu which was a great way to discover the best of this restaurant. Each plate had a wonderful presentation and full of flavor. The staff really know about the ingredients and how each dish had been created. The service was extremely wonderful and was one of my best experiences in San Senastian.
