I've been lucky enough to visit quite a few highly-ranked and Michelin star restaurants at this point, and I think my lunch at Akelarre is my favorite of them all. Interestingly, my experience didn't start out great. The view is amazing with floor to ceiling...More

Possibly Michelin 3-star restaurants aren't for me. We went with high expectations. The price matched our expectations. The wine list was extensive and good. The food looked amazing but the taste didn't quite live up to the look, and the composition of their tasting menu...More

I've been to several Michelin star restaurants and this was one of the best. This experience was exquisite over all- the views are stunning, the service excellent, and the food delicious. The amuse bouche- a deconstructed Bloody Mary, followed by the most tender olives you've...More

Akelare was an incredible dining experience. The food was creative and exciting from start to finish. The restaurant was pricey, but the meal (and the views!) were a highlight of our trip.

We had a wonderful dinner with my wife and two boys. The setting was great and my children even got special kids menus. The place is magnificent, perched over the hills, overlooking the ocean. Food was exquisite, quite a treat for the whole family. Service...More

I actually lost my faith in Michelin guide after having a dinner here. True, the setting and the view is amazing, but the service/atmosphere in the restaurant does not meet expectations and price/quality performance is low considering other options in the region. First of all,...More

You would be doing yourself a disservice if you were not sampling one of the three exquisitely crafted degustation menus. We found the 2002 Cristal at 240-odd Euros to be outstanding value compared to Australian bottle shop... More
