Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Attentive but subtle staff, beautiful location and superb food. The olives were a nice surprise, I squealed with joy even on the second one :) I'm usually not a dessert person, but the lemon basil was one of my favourites! Super fresh and elegant. It...was also my favourite wine pairing, what a match made in heaven! We were a bit disappointed that Martín was not there, but learned that he is recovering from a knee surgery. He was sweet enough to leave a present for us, and we love the book! If I ever get the chance to come back I will! Best restaurant experience ever! Thank you for making our night of celebration so special!More

From the welcome by our head experience staff Martín to the sommelier Salvador to the rest of the staff, this was the best dining experience out of Arzak, Akelarre, Berasategui, and Azurmendi and quite frankly the best I’ve ever had. The service is impeccable. Martín...remembered me from a past trip, and I instantly felt like I was being welcomed back as a friend. The food—phenomenal. Virtually every plate was one I wanted more of. The wine selection was thoughtful and Salvador helped me decide on what I wanted to try. I don’t know what else to say. Its perfect. If you’re trying to decide where to go when you’re in Donosti, stop right now and try to book Martin Berasategui. You wont regret it and you’ll completely spoil yourself. Guaranteed. And Martín, if you read this, make sure you say hi to Charlie for us—they work hard. :) Haha. See you again real soon.More

We can summarize our experience with one word and that is “fantastic”. Whatever we taste , service , hospitality was absolutely perfect. This is 3 michelin star and prices are relatively high but they are fully deservint every cents of this. We went there to...celebrate our 25th wedding anniversery and can not think better place than Martin. I hope we will have a chance to visit there againMore

We have eaten in about 12 Michelin/2Michelin star places. This one had it all. Friendly attentive staff. Our host was superb. She was extremely knowledgable but relaxed and spoke impeccable English. She even taught us some Spanish. We had the tasting menu. It was probably...the best meal we have ever had. The langoustine salad dish is the most beautiful creation I have ever seen. A true work of art. Faultless food and service. We will never forget it.More

It was just amazing dishes one after another. Very creative mix of food, surprising texture, and complex taste made us feel like going heaven. Every dish was complete set of food, and we felt as if we were appreciating art. We had never expected to...have sea urchin to be served outside of Japan (we are sea urchin lovers especially in SUSHI style) and it was nice challenge to cook for western way. Wines we ordered were mostly local ones which went very well with dishes. This is a worth to visit place when you are in San Sebastian.More

The food here is beyond amazing. I had the feeling there was some one in the kitchen who knows me extremely well and cooks only for me. This cuisine is personal and full of love - I was blown away with every bite. Martin Berasategui...teases out the platonic taste ideal of each ingredient, so it tastes like you always knew it should. There is something deeply sentimental, warm and familiar in his culinary art, which for me places him amongst the Olympians of culinary art in Europe today. The food is divine. I have one criticism though and that is that the service, which started out extremely attentive and nice, somehow deteriorated throughout the evening, so that we felt a bit abandoned at the end. I am not really sure what happened, but the waning attention and friendliness put a bit of a damper on otherwise incredible dining experience. Overall some of the best food this world has to offer, with a service that left us a bit disappointed and sad. I guess you can not have something this perfect without a reminder of earthly imperfection.More

Of the three restaurants we dined at during our San Sebastian vacation (Akelarre and Arzak being the other two) this was by far the best. The tasting menu was fantastic from start to finish except for the pigeon dish (could be because we are not...fond of pigeons) so would recommend seeing if they could substitute a different dish. The setting is great (same architect as Akelarre) and the service is impeccable and what you would expect from a three star Michelin restaurant. The sommelier did a perfect job of matching our wine to our dinner (did not do the wine matching menu and just ordered our own bottles). Told him our price range and he did a fantastic job finding us outstanding bottles. Highly recommended!More

An incredible experience! We have been to many Michelin restaurants around the world and this was our favourite! They were able to cater for my allergies and other (rather fussy!) dietary preferences, which was so greatly appreciated. The food (especially the sirloin) was incredible and...the wait staff were very attentive (without being overbearing).More
