We had an amazing meal at Arzak when we were in San Sebastian this year. There were just so many things that were so right about the experience. The phenomenal food only represents one part of the experience. The service is spot on, the decor is lovely and inviting, the ambiance is lively and calming and you don’t have to spend big bucks on the amazing wine that they have. Elena Arzak actually comes out to great each table personally for a chat and she was so lovely. I was really impressed that she remembered so much about her trip to Melbourne a few months ago.
I am definitely going back the next time I’m in the region!
Started with a few small bites for the table…
Fish of the day with “patxaran” and purple corn – full of taste and textures
Scarlet prawn with krill – this is perhaps the greatest dish I have ever tasted
Lobster – so much drama on a plate, and so pretty to look at
Egg with corn
Fish according to the sea – there’s a choice of which fish you’d pick. Honestly don’t remember what we chose but I do remember it being amazing!
Petit fours – how pretty!
