We were really excited about coming here, and the food just blew us away! Nothing I can say will properly do it justice, it was phenomenal.

One of the most amazing places I have ever eaten.... Every mouthful to savour... Their knowledge of their local fish is unbelievable....

We were part of a Backroads Tour group of 18, and had lunch at this restaurant. It is a Michelin-starred place, and maybe a bit too fancy for my taste. Appetizers that are so tiny they aren't worth the effort to eat them don't really appeal to me, and fish that is barely cooked--though some think rare is the proper... More

Having walked along the seafront to find all the restaurants with seaviews it was a little disappointing to not have such views however the atmosphere and ambience in Elkano quickly compensated. Reservations are essential for this very busy restaurant and parking is a bit of a challenge too but worth it. The fish soup as a starter is fabulous with... More

Stayed in Getaria recently and visited Elkano. Superb staff make for an excellent dining experience. The space is warm and inviting. The food was sublime. We had steak and turbot and both were excellent and cooked to perfection. Desserts were way beyond anything I could cook - the work of an expert. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Order whatever the gentleman (the owner) tells you to order. The fish was amazing and service was warm and friendly. I would definitely go back to this restaurant. Its also very affordable even for Spain standards.

Very good wine list for Spanish wines. Food was good, but not fantastic. Great value for money...not quite. Nice place though, with good service.

Turbot was very good but was not blown away. Maybe living in New England with such good fish has jaded us. Service was good but not what I would call Michelin star worthy. We would not return.

We were a little disappointed when we first saw where the restaurant was located - in the main street and not overlooking the port or the ocean. However this soon disappeared when we got inside and were seated. A great space and we did have a glimpse of the sea. Some lovely local wine and some great dressed crab to... More
