Kokotxa, San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain

There are a lot and I do mean a lot of Michelin starred restaurants to choose from in San Sebastian.  Actually there are a lot of fantastic places to dine in San Sebastian.  3 stars is too much for me, not that I’ve ever had the occasion, but it’s just too much for me.  I choose Kokotxa because I read about it in a few blogs and seemed like our style of a place.
We were not disappointed and to top it off was one of the best meals in San Sebastian.

The staff was young and friendly and really worked as a team.  It had that energy, which is what makes a restaurant flow and feel good.  It’s important.
