Akelarre is a famous Basque restaurant in Igueldo which is known for its seafood. You will love your time here as it is located at a breathtaking site in between the mountains. All the food and wines are delicious. The staff is quite supportive and they will even arrange a proper place to sit for you. You will not find a better place to sip your drink than this place which is located above the bay of Biscay. The best dish here is the lamb loin with lots of sweet bread and salads alongside squid risotto and violet potato dish. After finishing your meal there will be a complementary coffee or other drinks for you.

Worth every penny. Every course is a spectacle of flavours, textures and fusions. Truly amazing. I'm amazed to read some of the bad reviews here. I've been to several Michelin star restaurants, and this was by far the best experience I've had. Maybe the time of year makes a difference? I went in November, booked only about a week in advance. Restaurant was busy, but not full. Staff was absolutely lovely, was there whenever needed, and only when needed. Food was exquisite, ever course a joy paired with the right wine. Every flavour clearly distinguishable, yet none overpowering any of the others. Perfect harmony on a plate. Don't know what else to say.
The restaurant is really beautiful! if you are a foodie like me, this is not really a place for you! I have been to many of the Michelin Star Restaurants all over the world, I do understand the wait and the expectations. However, in this case whatever came on the plate did not impress none of the 7 people on my table. Being in San Sebastian, you can absolutely skip this one and enjoy other places that will impress you!
Underwhelming for a 3 star Michelin restaurant. Food was on the bland side and service felt rushed as they hurried you through the courses. The view was magnificent but I have had considerably better and more creative cuisine at other Michelin restaurants of 3 stars or less.
Please don't waste your time going here. It is a huge waste of money, the food was very bland. You can get a cheaper better tasting meal in San Sebastian for a lot less. For 2 people + wine tasting menu was $781. Extremely overpriced.
Uninspired food is boring and surprisingly tasteless. The service is attentive but to no particular end. The views are excellent. If you decide to come try to get a table where everyone can enjoy the seascape. If you're deciding between this and another similar gastronomic delight, though, I recommend looking elsewhere - there are plenty of excellent alternatives in the area.
