Given how long Martin Berasategui has been at the top of the heap of 3-stars, you might forgive him for resting on his laurels. But he doesn’t. His menu is as innovative as ever, incorporating elements of contemporary cuisine but never straying far from the flavors and textures of actual ingredients. The service, expected to be seamless, was not merely efficient but charming and personal. A must!

Service was so thoughtful and attentive - they immediately personalized each of our menus according to our dietary restrictions. Waitstaff was attentive and engaging. Food was beautiful and delicious. We gave the sommelier a budget and she picked out the perfect bottle for us at a very reasonable price. An absolutely memorable meal that I would recommend for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

We visited for my birthday for lunch.

To get to the restaurant, we took an Uber from San Sebastián which took approximately 20 minutes to get to the restaurant. We arrived just on time at 1300 and were welcomed by the reception.

The menu options included a tasting menu as well as a la carte. Most people tried the tasting menu as did we, and we were not disappointed.

The menu included about 16 or so dishes, the majority of which were either seafood or fish. The final main course was a beef dish.

The menu was extremely well executed, and the service was close to flawless. For one dish, where I asked not to have oysters, they forgot to change my dish but very quickly served my replacement dish. Our favourite dishes were two of their older dishes which they have kept on the menu; one has fois gras in it, and the other was a gorgeous salad dish.

At the end of the meal, we had a chance to tour the kitchen and realised how they could have such flawless food and service; there were 60 chefs in the kitchen (excluding the wait staff)!

I was given a gift (an autographed chef apron) for my birthday which was lovely and we got to meet Martin himself!

The meal was less experimental than other top end San Sebastián restaurants but clearly popular with both local families and couples, as well as tourists. It was a larger restaurant with about 40 pax eating that day. Definitely a memorable restaurant well deserving of its three stars!

We were here for our 25th wedding anniversary and was our first time visiting a 3 star Michelin restaurant. Blown away by the service, the food and the atmosphere. I would definitely recommend the experience....worth the price to us

We always come for our Christmas party and once again we had an amazing time! They automatically know that I am a vegetarian without having to be prompted.
