This is a restaurant that made me fall madly in love some years ago. I had the best Rodaballo I had ever tasted, espectacular Chuletón, also one of the tastiest meat with its special flavor "a la brasa". Ever since, we decided to come at least once a year to visit this beautiful area (San Sebastián) just because of this... More

This place is unique. In a rural setting but just minutes from the center I get a feeling of being in the real setting of this food capital.

A large group of us visited as part of a school reunion. They coped with our table of 13 without a hitch. The food was excellent throughout with a special mention for the tastiest and tenderest squid I have ever had the pleasure to eat. My steak came far too rare for me but was taken back and further grilled... More

I have dined at Illarra three times, and each time has been fantastic. The dishes/food are excellent, service excellent, and very nice atmosphere. The grilled rodaballo (turbot?) is my favorite.

Great meal, great wine, great service! When you go try the truffled egg - wow. Fantastic Basque food without all the hoopla or tourists.
