The Chef’s Table Dinner in San Sebastian

San Sebastian is known for the Michelin Star restaurants and its great chefs.

If you are looking for a special experience, where you meet new people while the chef is cooking in front of you, the chef’s table dinner in San Sebastian is something you should try.

This is not a restaurant!

The exclusive chef’s table night is specially tailored for the enjoyment of just a few guests…

We met two lovely couples, David & Morgan from New York and Brian & Joanne from Perth. It was really fun, we were all laughing while discussing the different cultures and having the best wines from the region.

Located in the most beautiful hotel in San Sebastian, the Maria Cristina, the Cooking School offered for the first time a unique concept, inspired by the local Basque gastronomic societies.


During this special event, the chef becomes more like a friend you can chat with and ask questions and he will tell you everything about his amazing dishes and even more.

This demo lasts three hours and includes guidance on preparing our chef’s favorite local dishes, as well as a fabulous time among new friends.


We had some delicious food! This is what we ate:

Surprise Pintxo

Red Mullet with Avocado, Ginger and Sesame


Spider Crab Ravioli with Leek and Vanilla

Rice with Prawns, Safran and Parsley


Monkfish with Squid, Green Pepper and Black Olives


Suckling Pig with Mash, Cumin and Pancetta


Cheese Plate


Trufas de Chocolate

Each dish was served with different wines from the region. It was outstanding!


If you come to San Sebastian, you really should experience the Chef’s dinner and take a walk in the beautiful village or by the sea afterwards. It can be really romantic…
