Spain's Michelin Restaurants: What do they cost?

Just ate at Hisop and agree their new star is much deserved. Incredible food and service. As of last week, Hisop's tasting menu for dinner cost 48 euros, worth it without a doubt. The ala cart menu at Hisop is also reasonably priced.

The tasting menus at Alkimia (one star and also excellent) are 65 euros for "traditional" menu and 84 for their full "Alkimia" menu.

The two tasting menus at Akelarre in San Sebastian, 3-stars, are both 140 euros. They do have an ala cart menu with very high prices, think 50+ euros for many of the dishes. You would prob pay 100-120 euros for an app, entree, and dessert so I'd recommend doing the tasting and getting three times as many dishes for slightly more.

After the famous names, what is the best restaurant in San Sebastian?

Thank you for the ideas. Bodegan Alejandro looks like a great option, a good place to get a feeling for Basque cuisine.

I have a reservation for a lunch at Akelarre already, maybe I'll do a lunch at Alejandro the day prior as contrast -- Basque to New Basque Cuisine.

We all know and love Arzak, Akelarre, Martin Berasategui, and Zuberoa in San Sebastian.

Has anyone had any other truly great meals, of the sit-down variety (not Pintxos), in San Sebastian?

I have heard of Urepel, any thoughts?
