We wanted a Restaurant away of the crowed Casco Viejo and found Alaia Restaurant in Monte Igueldo. It was the best. Beautiful view of La concha, good food and service. Don't miss it.

We visited friends in Donostia and they had booked a table on the terrace at the Alaia for our lunch. The trip up to the top of Monte Igueldo on the quaint old "funicular" (near "Wimbledon" tennis club!!) was a real novelty. We were running...More

The good points, amazing location, nice sirloin steak and friendly staff. The bad points, to park you have to pay the entrance to the Monte Igeldo park, €2.20 per person despite the restaurant being 3 metres inside. There is no children's menu and should your...More
