Terrace with awesome view!

In the middle of La Concha beach this place invites you for a stop to enjoy at least a small dish and a drink. We took a table outside and enjoyed the view and the atmosphere. The Food was good, the drinks Ok and the panorama wonderful! Perfect to relax on our way back from Monte Igeldo to our... read more

We were in San Sebastian for two days. This was our first visit to Spain and we expected to find good Spanish food. First night we went to the city centre and had pinxtos in a crowded bar. The food was average to say the least. We probably selected the wrong bar. Second day, we wanted to eat in a... More

Had another delightful lunch here. Had a delayed flight not caused us to miss our first day in San Sebastian, we’d have had 2 delightful meals here. We called from the U.S. for reservations, and unfortunately, had to cancel the first day. When the young lady asked us if we’d like aperitifs, we thought 'why not?’ and ordered 2 finos... More

We ate here at the recommendation of some Spanish friends and we weren't disappointed. The food was tasty and we found the service to be very good. The views were spectacular. Only negative was that it was 44 euros each for a set menu (not including tip), which i think is a tad expensive. Don't let the cost dismay you... More

I'm a fussy eater but the food here was truly amazing! We ate from a set menu but everything really was tasty. The beef consume to start with went down a treat coming in from the cold! Great service, lovely views, well decorated.

This place obviously trades on its location. My wife and I went in for a coffee and snack mid afternoon. Completely ignored by the bar staff as were other (potential) customers. A local man arrived who obviously knew the staff and he was served immediately. We had to virtually shout to get the attention of someone. 2 young men tried... More

We ate in the outside restaurant/cafe twice while we were here and were very impressed. We ate inside once and would not go back. Outside tables overlook the amazing beach and water and you can spend many an hour relaxing and people watching here. The drinks and food are very enjoyable and I highly recommend. We went sight seeing in... More

I was not overly impressed with this restaurant. It suffers from the complacency of being situated in an idyllic setting right by the ocean and, though the view is wonderful, the food is horrifically overpriced and the service was terrible. The staff were so rude, even after we ordered everything in quite reasonable, but obviously not acceptable, Spanish. The food... More

Food is ok with extended menu. Also special menus with all included. The view day or night is beautiful and some what romantic. The name of this resturant is perfect as it is in the center of one of God's beautiful creations "La Concha"
