Looking out over the Urumea River and Victoria Eugenia Theater, Hotel Maria Cristina’s restaurant outlets offer top-tier service in an enchanting atmosphere. Around the town, the colorful flavors of Basque cuisine waft through the stone streets. In reverence to the region’s fresh flavors, restaurants combine their seasonal á la carte menus—crafted according to daily market produce—with classic fresh fish and meat dishes.

A gastronomic paradise, the 16 Michelin starred city offers not only fine dining, but also local cuisine including renowned carveries and cider houses, and the celebrated specialty, pintxos: small portions of food served at bars for tapas or snacks. To taste them in their authentic environs, head to San Sebastian´s Casco Viejo.

Our concierge is pleased to assist with restaurant recommendations and reservations.
