“Fantastic”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

It is a nice restaurant on the Hotel Arguinano in Zarautz, on the beach with beautiful view to the beach and excellent food to very reasonable price , the best value for money I ever tried.
It is in Zarautz not in San Sebastián it is 20 min from San Sebastián by car

“Excellent food and service ....with a view”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Excellent menu de dégustation with interesting sauces. Some were right on the money (tuna steak on salad, creme on red fruit dessert) others, a bit off (gazpacho almost like a hint of vomit, vegetable ravioli a bit bland). An address to keep.

“Good food right on the beach!”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

We opted for the 5 course tasting menu - fresh tuna salad, vegetable ravioli, hake, pork and dessert. Efficient service - too quick perhaps with each course, not much time for reflection. Food was well presented, thoughtfully prepared and well seasoned. Local very dry white wine is probably not to everyone's taste and I would not choose it again. Magnificent view of the sunset over the sea. Would definitely return.

“Delicious meal, great service”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

My husband and I came upon this restaurant when we stopped in Zarautz for a coffee on a drive along the coast. We liked the look of the 5 course tasting menu, so on our way back decided to stop and have a late lunch.
The service was impeccable and the meal delicious. Our favourite was the Roast Cod in Txakoli Wine Sauce but all dishes were enjoyable. It was a cold day and the large windows overlooking the beach let us enjoy the waves in comfort. Highly recommended.

“Excellent service and food”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

I have gone for three years to Zarautz in the summer and I have always visited this restaurant for tapas especially. Given that the owner is a Spanish famous chef I thought it was going to be very expensive but prices are very reasonable and the food is lovely. It is right on the beach and you can get nice views from there so the location is really good. I would recommend anyone to visit the restaurant and if you are lucky you can even meet Karlos as he usually sits with his friends outside.
