As soon as you step inside Akelarre restaurant, the view will simply take your breath away, with the foggy Atlantic Ocean losing itself at the horizon for sunset. The food is just as good, with an excellent chocolate roasted pigeon and deserts. Whilst perhaps not...More

Akelare is an experience. Perched on top of a scenic hill overlooking the sea. We had the degustation and wine pairing combo. The service was good from the moment we walked in. Chef Subijana greeted the limited guests at the end of a superb lunch....More

This restaurant is located in a prime area in the monte Urgull. The food and the service are really up to the Michelin stars they have. In our opinion is too expensive compared with other Michelin restaurants in Europe

$33 Euros for a ham sandwich? no prices in the menu because if they told you what they charge, you would leave. Each meal for 2, in the snack bar, was at least $200 Euros. Hotel and staff were excellent but I think they subsidise...More

There is a good reason why Akelarre fails to get 4 Michelin stars. It is because the most you can get is three. Akalare is perched on a hilltop, high above the Bay of Biscay. The view is spectacular and was an excellent visual aperitif...More

We went there to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We are both foodies, and we’re very much looking forward to the experience. Unfortunately, we didn’t think they delivered. The food to us, while interesting, was not that good. It certainly didn’t knock our socks off. Overall,...More

You can sit outside or in the bar area and enjoy an appetizer without dining on the full tasting menu.
