I only had an hour's notice before going to Arzak. I asked the concierge at Villa Soro for restaurant recommendations, and she suggested Arzak, a 3-star Michelin restaurant nearby. "But they're not going to have any availability are they?" I asked. "Well, we can try," she said. She managed to find the last table there on this particular evening, and I decided to go for it.
How serendipitous. It sounds a bit cliche, but the experience was magical. The dining room is very relaxed and unpretentious. I ordered the tasting menu; every dish was memorable, and the presentation was of the highest standard. The chef even visited the table for a chat. I even saved the mneu. Arzak is perfection without trying too hard. It's obvious why it has 3 Michelin stars.
If you go (and you know you will), don't hold back -- order the tasting menu. It would be a waste of an experience not to.
