Fodor's Review

One of the world's great culinary meccas, award-winning Arzak embodies the prestige, novelty, and science-driven creativity of the Basque culinary zeitgeist. The restaurant and its high-tech food lab—both helmed by founder Juan Mari Arzak's daughter Elena these days—are situated in the family's 19th-century home on the outskirts of San Sebastián, and though the space might not be much to look at, the ever-changing dishes are downright thrilling for their trompe l'oeil presentations, unexpected flavor combinations, and rare ingredients.
