We've eaten here on each of the 3 nights we've been in Donostia. The service is spot on, and the food fantastic. We've had the fish soup, the Paella and the Lobster broth. Their Verdejo is a bit special too!

We saw the restaurant in a guide - recommended for fish and traditional food. All I can say is they must have paid for the recommendation or it was very out of date. The waitress was rude and unhelpful from the very start and the...More

Myself and my sister were abruptly refused a table with no explanation. Two groups walked in as we were leaving and were seated immediately with no reservation.

what you say is a lie. in summer almost every day we have complete with reservations. the groups that came were reserve. I think it does not make any sense not to offer a table if we have when we live from that.
