We went there last night and we had the traditional menu. All dishes of the menu were delicious. We enjoyed it but it ended up being too much food for dinner time. It's better to have it at lunch. Nevertheless, we totally recommend it. Nice ambiance, good service and food.

We ate in this restaurant because it had a Michelin star and we were staying at the Melia hotel. We couldn't get in the first night but got reservations for the second and were really disappointed. The food emphasis was on unusual preparations and presentation. I had the rabbit which was prepared three different ways. Every one of them was... More

As we were too late for reserving an out-of-hotel dinner reservation, we chose to dine inside the Melia hotel. Aizian prov d to be a good choice. The appetizer was very tasty, the squid entree was marvelous and the turbot was very well prepared. Very decent wine list at very affordable prices. Good service, albeit a bit erratic, certainly when... More

My wife and I also stayed at this Melia 9 nights broken up into 2 separate stay. We ate a total of 4 times here and each time to be honest, we thought the food was very good. We were told that it was the chef that had the 1 star and not the restaurant. In any event, it was... More

We were looking forward to the tasting menu in this Michelin starred restaurant and were quite disappointed. Service was fine but there is really no atmosphere there. This can be hard to achieve during summer evenings but some attempt could be made to address it. We just were not mad about some of the courses - maybe we had Michelin... More

A delicious meal, prepared and served slowly. The A la carte menu is good but I recommend the special menu, here you trust the chef (worth trusting!) and actually spend less.

Excellent service and dinner. Some friends recommended this restaurant to discover the Basque cuisine and the choice could not be better. We really enjoy the black rice and sirloin tataki. The restaurant is located in a hotel, which is easy to park if you take a rental car and just like we do not know the city.

Fantastic food but the service it was quite slow. The ambiance is a bit cold. The light could be warmer to bring a different sort of atmosphere.

We were at the Hotel where this restaurant occupies a portion of the ground floor. We were tired and not up for still another trip to Plaza Nouveau or hungry enough to order any of the three interesting tasting menus. We ordered a few of the "half plates" and were delighted. there were several amuse bouche served before our ordered... More
