This restaurant is pricy for lunch not the top one for dinner. Monkfish was the best I have every had, cooked regional way very tacty. Recomend for lunch, if you need to impress someone who is a gourme. Put it in your list when visiting San Sebastian.

Firstly I want to thank this restaurant for a perfect end to the perfect last night of our trip. We sat down and immediately and felt welcomed, the waitresses were tip top. Preserving the tasting menu along with the recommended wine menu, every stage was mouthwatering. Really really enjoyed every course, cooked to a very high standard, taste sensation. This... More

We ate here for lunch. It was definitely interesting. Pricey for lunch. I had the Cod pil pil, which is regional dish, my husband had duck. Both were delicious. We did not order the chef tasting menu, just al a carte. It was a good meal maybe not a great meal. We did watch a table next to us consume... More

I made reservations a day prior for lunch and am glad I did. Within 30-45 minutes after being seated, the room in which I was seated was fully packed. That said, I appreciated that there was plenty of elbow room and space between tables. My entire experience with the warm, inviting, friendly staff was 100% positive from my initial booking... More

We had the tasting menu for 46 euros, and wine-pairing for an additional 17.50 euros. This isn't cheap but it is very reasonable and good value for the quality, quantity and presentation of food- which are really at fine-dining standards. The lunch started with a complementary rich ham soup, bread. The tasting menu included really smooth fish, inspired deserts, beef,... More

We had an all-around great meal here. Jamon iberico and fish soup to start with - the jamon was amazing! The fish soup was good but not as hearty as we had at Ramiro in Lisbon. After that entrecôte (incredible!) and bacalao (very good). We would definitely come back here!

Spain is blessed with great food and San Sebastian's reputation of gastronomic excellence is well deserved but Bodegon Alejandro didn't live up to the excellent reviews from other reviewers on TripAdvisor. Don't get me wrong, it is good but not excellent when you compare it to other food experiences San Sebastian has to offer. What is excellent is the prix... More

This restaurant is located in the heart of the Old Town and therefore really easy to go. I visited with a group of friends, and we all purchased the fixed menu, which is 6 courses all paired with accompanying wines. The food is nothing like the traditional pintxos which you find in the Old Town, but each of the plates... More

After a couple of days of tapas we decided to treat ourselves and booked a table in this delightful restaurant. Firstly our Spanish is very poor so it was helpful that the staff had reasonable English. More importantly they were helpful cheerful and knowledgeable. The food was excellently prepared and delicious. No hesitation in recommending

Michelin rated, though not starred, this is the place to go for a tasting menu of excellent food at a reasonable 42€ pp wine not included. Some of the dishes were outstanding: the garlic purée sauce with the steak though part of the steak was a tiny bit chewy and the dessert of French toast with cheese ice cream was... More
