    We tried the degustation menu and the food was delicious. We often try the degustation menu in various restaurants in the Basque country. A few 10s so far, so we know what to expect or compare to. Every meal was very good. It is only 5 plates menu though for 50 euros which is fair. Salad, risotto, bacalao, carilleras, desert. Taste and quality were top notch. What we missed was that one of the main plates would be a little bigger in size so the meal would be complete and not leave us just on degustation. Usually, that is the case in my experience. But for example bacalao was served in a very tiny portion. I guess we should have ordered something else. We would come again though, but we would not go with the degustation menu again. It left us a bit hungry.

    The restaurant was welcoming and smart. The staff spoke English enough to be helpful. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. The owner spoke to us a few times to check in . Obviously loved by the locals as he seemed to know many diners. Good wine list and not too expensive.

    Place is really nice, cosy and quiet so ideal for a romantic diner. Food was excellent! We took tasting menu for 50 euros that was very good to taste some local dish / raw material. Win is extremely affordable: we took a 14 euros bottle local white wine that was simply excellent. I highly recommend the place.

    We ordered course menu for lunch. The food was okay in total except hake. Hake might be thawing so that texture was not good and watery. The price (50eur /person) was expensive.

    Buenas Señor: el pescado de su menu no era merluza, era bacalao, efectivamente, una textura mas tersa y salada, un saludo. Ander

    The food was delicious and nice portions. However, you can get same food quality and less price at the Pintxo bars in my opinion. Very fresh ingredients.

About the restaurant

¿Qué se puede hacer con un antiguo almacén de plátanos? Una de las opciones sería convertirlo en un espacio renovado, de referencia y moderno con toques clásicos, donde la cocina de mercado pudiera tener un lugar privilegiado. Eso precisamente es Astelana 1997 un restaurante que premia la calidad y temporalidad del producto.

Emplazado en la parte vieja de Donostia, su talante joven y experimentado está guiado por la mano del chef Ander González. Su objetivo: hacerte disfrutar de una deliciosa cocina de mercado, sin dejar de lado la gastronomía vasca moderna, con platillos como la terrina de foie natural, frutos rojos y teja de naranja o el rabo de buey al vino tinto que se acerca mucho a la perfección.

Muy a pesar de que la traducción del nombre del restaurante sea "lunes", Astelana 1997 es un espacio idóneo para disfrutar en cualquier ocasión. Reserva ya!
