This is the perfect dining experience. We have been here twice, to visit this restaurant was the main reason we went to San Sebastian this summer.The ambience, the tasting menue, the suberb wine suggestions from the very attentive and most knowledgeable sommelier, everything here is close to perfect! We had the tasting menu both times, the peak of this menu... More

An elegant restaurant is located at hill side of San Sebastian with totally different view from well-known coast. Excellent and creative use of foam and sauce made dishes distinctive in taste and presentation.

We had 8 coursed and all of them were wonderful. We had to kids with us and they were prepared to make anything for them they wanted (they wanted french fries!!). We had a lovely, memorable evening.

The place is not easy to find but it is definitely worth trying. This was the best of our choices in San Sebastian. Although a few other restaurants are more known and favorited I can assure you that Martin has so far the best tasting menu in the region. I would not suggest to chose wine pairing with the tasting... More

A beautiful, stylish and contemporary dining room with very well spaced tables. Lots of natural light on a Summer evening and a pretty outlook. Service was totally faultless throughout, with exceptional attention to detail. An earlier reviewer describes how evening just feels "right" here. Nobody is trying too hard. Service feels genuine. Everything happens just as it should, exactly when... More

We booked this dinner weeks in advanced and at first it was a little intimidating as they have a number of wait staff waiting to greet you at the door. We had a 14 course degustation and as I am picky with what I eat, they were able to alter my dishes. The weather was lovely and decided to sit... More

Surely patrons booking and partaking a meal here do so with complete prior awareness of what the experience is likely to be; The Man is hardly a shrinking violet who avoids media attention after all, and I think comparing this scene with earthy authentic ethnic cuisine is an apples and pears conceit; you cannot say which is the "better", or...

Had an amazing lunch here last fall from start to finish...really outstanding. We did the wine pairing as well and the matches were spot on (honestly, when throwing down so much money on food might as well go all the way for the sublime experience). The kitchen is massive and it showed in the creations as nearly all of them... More

As hard as it is for me to believe, my wife and I found our dinner at Martin Berasategui, all 14 courses and *nine hundred and ten dollars* of it, a disappointment. First, the atmosphere was fussy, self-conscious and overly reverential to the food and the man, hushed and formal as a church—if not a funeral—with a commercial edge to... More
