Though this wasn't 3-Michelin start dining, this is one of the most memorable meals I have ever had. The food is tasty & hearty-- elegant versions of the local rustic cuisine. You feel as if you are in someone's living room. The atmosphere isn't what you'd expect, but for some reason it is just right for this restaurant. The wine... More

amazing wine list, quite good food but quite large portions so if you are not hungry go for two starters.

Wow the cellar, good the food, ok the service, family run joint in Igeldo, a few kms out of San Sebastián. But worth the visit, menus in English and staff can mostly speak in English too. The good was good traditional regional fare but not quite fine dining and one of the staff members is so old school it's not... More

This amazing little restaurant, with its sycamore shaded terrance is a tiny gem in a town full of them. Rekondo has the largest and most extensive wine cellar in all of Spain and one of the top five in Europe. If you're lucky enough to get a tour of it (we were because one of our party knew a friend...

Unfortunately the evening we dined at Rekondo it was raining. The restaurant is perched on the side of the hill behind San Sebastian with what would probably be picturesque views of the harbour. It has what looks like a wonderful outdoor dining terrace if the weather is fine. On this night we were shown to a small back room with... More

This restaurant was just down the road from our hotel. We tried to book and it being Semana Grande had to wait a couple of days for a reservation . Someone in the hotel had tried it and recommended it so we were really looking forward to it. We were with my son who speaks fluent Spanish so that was... More

The food is good, alright, but you can find more impressive food many places in San Sebastian and in the general area. You'll struggle to find a more impressive wine list, however. Spain-heavy, obviously, but rich on French and Italian too. And winre prices are really good. So go for the wine and don't expect too much from the food.

As a child in Sri Lanka, my absolute favourite meal was Baked Crab. I'm talking about the incomparably delicious dish of all the crab-meat mixed with a simple sauce and baked in the crab shell. Despite extensive travel since then I never found it on any menu anywhere. Until Rekondo. And it was Heaven in a Crab Shell. I would... More

This is an excellent restaurant, serving traditional Basque cuisine. The staff is especially friendly and helpful, and the wine list is huge, with very reasonable prices on older vintages. My only regret was that it was just a bit too cool for us to dine on the terrace the night we were there.
