En este restaurante del barrio Igueldo tienen claro que de nada sirve tener un buen director de orquesta sin virtuosos de cada instrumento. Y esa es la clave del éxito de este local en el que el gran maestro Pedro Subijana, trabaja codo con codo con un equipo humano increíble que les ha llevado a la cima gastronómica (las impresionantes vistas al mar son un plus). Existe la opción de elegir entre tres menús: uno más clásico y dos que incluyen las recetas más novedosas. También se pueden combinar platos si uno quiere probar un poco de todo. Elijas lo que elijas, no olvides probar el arroz con caracoles y karrakelas y el royal de pichón con morokil. ¡Ñam!

INSIDER tip

Puedes tomarte el café o una copa en una de sus impresionantes terrazas con vistas al Cantábrico para rematar la velada.

    Outstanding. We had two different 9 course menus plus snacks (amuse Bouches). One menu based on classic dishes and the other on more recent creations. Both extremely tasteful and creative. Wine list well selected, We focused on local Rioja wines, a white and a red, both suggested by the sommelier, very good and with market prices. Service impeccable with a very good timing between servings and smiling servers. Menus are expensive, but compatible with the outstanding global experience.

    Simply fantastic ! The food was amazing, staff were just the most attentive I’ve ever experienced in a Michelin star restaurant and the choice of menus was great ! Having the ability to swap and change to suit your taste was brilliant! Thanks to all the staff for a great evening x

    Excellent food, great sommelier. Lovely evening. I will remember the sea bass in 27 herbs as the best dish I had during my stay here in San Sebastián!

    Wonderful setting, exquisite dishes and attentive service but really quite expensive. Very international and relatively relaxed atmosphere. You have to choose between three set menus but not necessarily the same for everyone at the table

    Unbelievable food with unbelievable views and unbelievable service. The waiter saw that my wife didn't like the foie gras and brought her a totally new dish of her choosing and gave me an extra dish. UMREAL. Will go again.

    Truly magnificent. The food is sublime, and the wine pairing took it even further. So many tastes and small surprises in each dish.
