Featured in a previous post: The Local Lowdown | Amaia on Zarautz (& San Sebastian!) she mentioned two tiny seafood restaurants in the port of San Sebastian. I decided to check them out and went for lunch. The sun was shining and my stomach was rumbling.
I sat down with a couple friends and ate some of the best seafood I’ve had in my entire 2 years living in this city . . . I can’t believe I didn’t make it down here before.
This family owned restaurant has been around for years and they keep it simple and fresh. Bringing in fresh seafood and fish daily, their recipes keep the flavor rich and savory with the fresh off the grill touch.
I recommend EVERYTHING, but especially the Monkfish (or Rape in Spanish – said “rah-pay” just to avoid any errors there). I unfortunately dove into the first two dishes before I remembered to take out my camea and actually capture the mouthwatering display of food before savoring every bite. But I snuck my camera out and got a few of the pictures below. We paired our selections with cold local cider as well. Nothing quite as refreshing.
If you’re in Donostia-San Sebastian, you gotta try these two places – because what’s better than amazing fresh seafood, cold cider and a great view?
