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

I was working in San Sebastian at an event but I managed to visit here with my wife for her (significant) birthday on the Saturday. We arrived a little early but were seated quickly and then had one of the best meals of my life. We went for the tasting (greatest hits) menu with matched wines. The flavours, textures and... More

We had a wonderful evening at this restaurant. Food was fabulous and the flavours awesome. The service was outstanding and it has been the highlight of our stay in San Sebastian. My favourite dish was the sea scallops for entree. We enjoyed with some friends and we all left super impressed. Lovely touch with the chef coming out to ask... More

We had lunch here and it was a great experience. Their attention to detail, the immaculate presentation, the friendly and abundant staff, and the chef coming out to say hello to the diners all made this a great lunch. Even the tuffet was a nice touch to put our stuff on instead of the floor. Just look at all the... More

My wife and I lunched at Berasategui today (6/13/2015). Superb. Truly one of the great restaurants of the world. Last dined here 4 years ago and thought it was even better this afternoon. All of us thought the same including a local couple. Don't miss Berasategui. His ranking is now less than the SS competition, but it should be the... More

The attention to detail & creative talents of Martin Berasategu is demonstrated in every exquisite dish. The staff glide through course changes & wine is discreetly attended to. It resulted in a most amazingly wonderful journey of different tastes & combinations.

We can only join all those people who already posted their positive reviews praising this restaurant. We went for the 14-course tasting menu and enjoyed the hours of culinary highlights topping out one another. The menu is a blend of "golden oldies" (e.g. mille-feuille of smoked eel and foie gras or egg on a liquid herb salad) and new creations... More
