Restaurante Akelare.

Restaurant of a Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux in the country. Spain,San Sebastián

Unique in the world: Enjoy the impressive panoramic views of the Cantabrian sea from Mount Igeldo while dining

Pedro Subijana Reza, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

“Successful creations start with the best products. Each dish must be approached with the daring of a young chef, the experience of a mature man and the wisdom of an elder.” The personality of Grand Chef Pedro Subijana, his determination to always do better and his constant quest for innovation have made him an ambassador for new Basque cuisine. His secret is to add a ‘personal touch’ to traditional recipes; his own versions of hake and ‘kokotxa’ hake cheek, oyster leaf and ‘mussel beans’ and his slice of orange-infused ‘tocino del cielo’ with fruit paper are excellent examples of this. There are so many delicacies to be savoured. Enjoy the impressive panoramic views of the Cantabrian sea from Mount Igeldo while dining at this restaurant located just five minutes from the centre of Saint Sebastián.
