Nothing Quite Like It

Our lunch was innovative, accurate, beautiful and crucially tasty. So often this kind of food can be style over substance. Not here. Service is formal but not stuffy. Correct but very friendly. we sat on the outside terrace and the view was also a pleasure.

We were initially very nervous about such an expensive meal, especially as one member of our group of three is quite fussy about seafood. We were made to feel very welcome and special; staff were very accommodating around having two order the tasting menu and one have a la carte (eg adjusting the amuse-bouche, pacing the dishes). The staff balanced... More

The chef deserves all his stars! As we ate each course, we felt that the next couldn't be better, but it was. The cuisine was very innovative and presented beautifully. The tastes were sublime. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The staff made us feel like family, The price is steep, but if you're celebrating something special as we were,... More

We had been to San Sebastian in 2013 and had done a gastronomic tour but had not had the chance to dine at Martin Berastegui's eponymous restaurant there. I knew were in for a treat because we had been at Doma, his Michellin one star restaurant in Bilbao located across from the Guggenheim. The decor in the restaurent was elegant... More

Without a doubt, one of the two best dining experiences we have ever enjoyed. This is not an inexpensive restaurant; but, well worth the price. Frankly, we've spent much more for much less quality of food and service. The food and staff are both first rate. We choose the tasting menu which we paired with some recommended Spanish wines. The... More

This restaurant has one of the most beautiful dining rooms I have seen - spacious and bright and I feel a style which will always look fresh. Beautiful dining rooms are all well and good but the true beauty of this restaurant is the food. The staff are very informative and are exceptional in the way they understand and make... More

The service was great. Beautiful, crisp atmosphere. Friendly and warm. Unfortunately for us, we had a long lunch before our late dinner reservation. We were too full to take on the tasting course, so we were thrilled we could pick and choose a la carte. The food was fantastic. The presentation was beautiful, but the taste was even better.

It is difficult (impossible) to do a proper review for the place of such status and fame. So this is just to confirm that yes this place is great and yes you would experience an art of food performance. A couple of non-professional notes: waiters and the sommelier are working very hard to make you feel welcome and not "overwhelmed"... More

The food was great and we had the tasting but for 3 stars Quality food,ingredients,atmosphere and service all go to make the whole package. here the food was great but not mind blowing and the service was almost nervous ...lack of training.
