Great drinks but weak service: Dry Bar @ Hotel Maria Cristina, a Luxury Collection Hotel, San Sebastián (16. November 2019)

The Dry Bar is actually quite a nice place overall – at least in terms of the quality of the drinks they offer as well as the atmosphere. I went for some drink of which I cannot remember the name but it was definitely delicious. More fun is the “Fugu” – it tastes nice but […]

A truly overwhelming experience at No. 7 of the world: Restaurant Mugaritz (16. November 2019)

I was looking very much forward to dining at No. 7 of the world according to the Acquapanna / San Pellegrino List of the 50 best restaurants of the world and I must say, I was not disappointed. I was overwhelmed. We went for the “tasting menu” (EUR 200.00) – not that we really had […]

A truly local pintxos experience: Restaurant Bodega Donostiarra (16. November 2019)

The app “Where Chefs Eat” remains an absolutely reliable source for good food experiences. The Bodega Donostiarra was recommended for “pintxos” (tapas but in Basque county) and I must say that they delivered once more. We went for the “sardinillas gallegas ‘Salanorf’” (EUR 5.70) which were absolutely enjoyable but also quite oily. My favorite was […]

A couple of oral explosions but too heavy on the seafood side: Restaurant Martín Berasategui (15. November 2019)

I was looking forward to this weekend for quite a while – when do you have the chance to try 8 Michelin stars in less than 72 hours? When you go to San Sebastián, this is possible. The weekend started with 3 Michelin stars at Martín Berasategui where we went for the “tasting menu” (EUR […]

Truly amazing lunch experience – worth the travel: Restaurant Akelarre (17. November 2019)

Truly amazing lunch experience – worth the travel: Restaurant Akelarre (17. November 2019)

To have a 3 Michelin starred lunch is definitely among the more enjoyable things in life. The Akelarre is located a bit outside of San Sebastián and about a 15-20 minutes drive away from the city center. Once you get there, you’ll see immediately that it is totally worth the drive! Once you’re seated and […]

Recommended by a local, visited by locals only: Restaurant Membibre (10. February 2019)

The Membibre was recommended to me by a local – and it was a great recommendation. The key is to book a table in advance – the place was absolutely crowded and whenever a table would empty, it would be filled again within minutes. Once you’re seated – and even before you’ve placed your order […]

Quite touristic yet with great dishes: Restaurant Taberna Mas Al Sur (9. February 2019)

Quite touristic yet with great dishes: Restaurant Taberna Mas Al Sur (9. February 2019)

Apparently, the Taberna Mas al Sur has a big brother called ‘Taberna al Sur’ – quite a funny choice of names if you ask me but it didn’t keep us from going there. The place is not that huge but it somehow doesn’t matter as the waiter compensates for all the non-comfort with his care […]

Always worth a visit when you’re in Madrid: El Mercado de San Miguel (8. February 2019)

Somehow I end up in the El Mercado de San Miguel every time I visit Madrid – and the reason why is easy! The place is just so lively, so full of joy and ultimately also full of tasty places with tremendous food. Of course, as every time, I had to go for a plate […]
