I cannot rate this hotel more highly. My sister was rushed to hospital in an ambulance. The staff, especially Itsasho and Sonya, were so helpful. Itsasho cancelled our onward accommodation and organised rooms for us for an extra 3 days. I cannot thank them enough. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with a lovely view over the bay....

Large group stayed here for a wedding. Truly great food, fine service and comfortable rooms with superb views over the Bay of Biscay. Well looked after by the owner. Local bus service into city every 30 minutes meant no parking hassle. We all highly recommend this establishment.

Based on the Trip Advisor Reviews, we were staying at the Leku Eder Hotel, and walked up to the Buenavista Bar/restaurant. We asked the waitress to bring us the chef's special - to surprise us. She seemed really happy to have this opportunity, and we were truly delighted! we opened with the local traditional white wine - Txakolin. The first...

We started with a glass of wine, then another - a nice Spanish red. For a main course the bartender recommended that we share the fish dish as the serving was big enough for two. We ordered what turned out to be hake. The chef, a woman in her thirties, explained that the fish was simply dipped in egg and...

We had the menu del dia here on a lovely sunny day and the Buena Vista was perfect for us. Really good food and a wonderful view. Very nice lady server. A good value too. However, on another evening just before opening the bar man was very rude and made several people wait outside in the rain. We left rather...

We have often gone to Buena Vista, friends or family. Everything was good. I moved abroad some years ago and I asked my family to go over there for diner while visiting. A really nice short hair waitress was in charge of us... however towards the end of diner a longed hair girl looked after us. She is young. Both...

This is indeed the must-visit restaurant in San Sebastian! A limited menu-choice (tapas, raciones and dishes), but all are simple but superb made and well-taken care off by the cook. Fresh ingredients are the motto. Ask for chef's suggestions of the day. I ate a very tasteful 1,4 kg weighing Txuleta ( Cote à l'Os) at waiter's proposal. As a...

This is the must-visit restaurant in San Sebastian! I always ask for chef's menu and every time wonder if they can beat the last meal, and every time they have!

Great sea views, lots of parking and reasonably priced. 30 Euros for a menu at the weekend, and the a la carte was pretty good too, considering the location and the number of porsches and mercs in the car park! There are two sides, the formal dining side and the bar, covered and outdoor terrace side. It was all very...
