This was the most pleasant experience of our San Sebastian trip and perhaps our entire vacation to Spain, France and Turkey. Amazing location! Perched above the city of San Sebastian, dinner at sunset, exceptional and friendly service from Angel, delicious meal, kudos to Mirador de Ulía! We do not speak Spanish and despite this, we were able to communicate with Angel and the other restaurant staff. The experience was absolutely pleasant for a family from Asia. Each of my family members agreed this was the best restaurant of our trip - and this is no small compliment because we went to a few Michelin-starred restaurants. Highly recommend this place - you need a car or taxi but it is well worth the effort. Book dinner - a very good value - to watch the sunset - a bonus!

If you want a memorable experience, go here for lunch mid week as few people go at this time of the day. The food is sooooh delicious. We had the chef's tasting menu consisting of 10 small mouth watering dishes. The service is right on and the view is equal to any in Hong Kong, San Francisco, etc. You look down from a point 500'-600' overlooking San Sebastian, surfers riding the waves in from the Atlantic, etc. 3rd generation restaurant which continues to get better with time!
ENJOY!!

I can't believe that the Mirador de Ulia scores so low on TripAdvisor. Probably because you need to have a car or take a cab to get there so less likely to be visited by casual visitors to San Sebastian-Donostia.
And that's a pity because it's worth the trip uphill. What an incredible view from the restaurant. We went on Sunday afternoon and took the tasting menu which costs 80 euro (plus 8% tax). Every one of the 10 courses looked like a piece of art, was delicate and tasty. The pace of service was just right which meant that we were there from about 2 to 5 pm.
The restaurant has 1 Michelin star and it deserves it.
Surprisingly for a restaurant of this level, the wines were extremely affordable, even for Spain: there were many wines in the 10-15 euro range, per bottle, not per glass.
Another bonus was that service was good and one felt quickly at ease. There was no snooty atmosphere, just the right mix.
Altogether a wonderful experience.
