Tips for where to eat and recommended restaurants

Restaurant Kokotxa - Donostia - San Sebastian

Restaurant Kokotxa is one of the area's 16 Michelin stars, and the only one in the old part of San Sebastián. The menu prices are half the price of the two and three-star spots like Mugaritz and Arzak, we had a 9 course menu to a very reasonnable price of 85 Euro. The interior is charming with open windows to the old town and the atmosphere was not stiff at all.

Restaurant Xarma Cook - Donostia - San Sebastian

Restaurant Xarma Cook is another  addition to San Sebastian’s innovative dining scene. The kitchen is very creative and the atmosphere informal. This one is for sure another candidate for a Michelin star, but the prices are indeed very reasonnable.

Hotel Arima - San Sebastian

Created to be blend into the landscape, Hotel Arima is surrounded by an environment that exludes fresh air and purity. "Live green, love green" is the hotel spirit.


The hotel is based on an innovative and ambitious concept of respect for the environment: cutting-edge technology that uses clean energy such as geothermal and aerothermal energy, cleaning water collection systems, water flow reduction filters and selective waste management, among other Things.


It feels a little bit like Scandinavia meets Spain. During our stay the hotel just opened the brand new great 25 meters rooftop pool!
