We visited this restaurant for dinner and as expected had a wonderful evening- the reviews are spot on. To start, we chose the Iberico ham which melted in the mouth and the excellent fish soup which was perfection on a plate. We selected the suckling pig for our main course which was superb. There was a interesting choice of deserts... More

Had a fantastic dinner, despite two kids running around (which only two french couples were concerned about, the dinners from Basque and Spain were all just nice). The food excellent, the wine menue unbelievable (is not a menue, but rather a bible with rare vintages and pretty complete for a total beginner like me). The food is thoughtful basque cuisine,...

If you are in San Sebastián and feel like a break from the amazing Pinchos bars, then visit Rekondo. The food, service, welcome and ambiance are all truly world class. I could write reams, however I very strongly recommend that you book early and pay Lourdes and her amazing team a visit.

We were so impressed by this restaurant a few months ago that we wanted to return. We brought two friends from York, (north of England) this time. We all felt it was an amazing experience. This is not one of San Sebastian's Michelin starred restaurants so if that's what you want don't come here as you're expectations will be disappointed.... More

The Rekondo is a remarkable experience not just for the food but also for the friendly service and elegant setting. We tried the piglet and the cod: both were delicious. It is not cheap but not expensive either: about 40 euro per person. You need to reserve, the place was always fuss and when we tried to go back for... More

The newly renovated Rekondo is really deserving of a Michelin star. If you enjoy wine, this place has a 250 page wine list in a hard cover book. Martin the sommelier is ever willing to assist with your selection. The wines are affordable and perhaps the best we have drank in our worldwide gastronomic adventures....Lourdes, the proprietors daughter is charming... More

Rekondo came highly reconmended but we left feeling underwhelmed. The food was ok - nothing noteworthy. My starter of lobster and scallops lacked any flavour, neither natural nor added. My main course of baked crab came alone in a shell, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't his own. No vegetables are offered on the menu so my husband and I... More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable dinner here on a Saturday night. Away from the craziness of tapas downtown. Given the setting with an outdoor terrace it would be a better choice during warmer weather. Inside restaurant was very nice though. Food was very enjoyable. I think we will both agree that the appetizers were the highlights --... More

This is a smart yet casual restaurant with a famous wine list. The food is really, really good and is of proper portion size and a delicious mix of traditional ingredients with a modern twist. The deer was so soft and beautifully seasoned as was the suckling pig which is always a must in Spain. We will return as the... More

Friends and I had a most pleasant and delicious lunch on the terrace of Rekondo with courses ably recommended by proprietor, Lourdes, and a multi-decade line up of Spanish wines (that were divine) from her father's prodigious cellars. This was a lunch of shared appetizers including the restaurant's satisfying croquettas and particularly luscious Jamon Iberico. My roast suckling pig entree... More
