At Mugaritz, eating is a path to experience, a path scattered with histories, aromas, textures, flavours, games, memories, desires and numerous other pleasurable stimuli.
That is why we create and suggest forms of service that prompt situations in which our diners can give free rein to their senses and interact with only the barest of rules for engaging on a culinary voyage. We aim to break the barriers imposed by customs.
Mugaritz delivers a gastronomic experience of 25 dishes. Pleasure is experienced in an unpredictable melody where sensory harmonies, emotions, and culinary messages lyrically intertwine.
Cost: at the time of writing, the cost of the 25 sequence lunch is 204 euros
As it is a tasting menu there will be no choice, but dietary requirements can be catered for if notified in advance.
Location: the restaurant is based 10km outside San Sebastian, and can be reached via a 20 minute taxi ride, a very faffy journey on public transport, or a lengthy walk.
Payment: the restaurant has a even-more-hefty-than-usual cancellation charge, so £190 to be paid on RSVP. From this, approximately 185 euros will be deducted from your food bill on the day (the exact amount might differ slightly if the exchange rate has deteriorated significantly between now and then), so you will need to pay for the remainder of the food, plus service charge and any drinks purchased.
Refund Policy: A full refund will be provided if the Meetup is rescheduled or cancelled. Otherwise, if you are no longer able to attend, a refund (less fees) will be given only if you have changed your RSVP status to No AND all places at the Meetup (including yours) have been taken; if the Meetup does not fill, you will not receive a refund.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Bookings for this restaurant open in November 2016, and so I will be making the reservation within the next month, for the people signed up to the meetup at the time. If I fail to make the reservation, or cannot book sufficiently large table, you will be refunded in full. You may prefer not to book flights and hotels until you know whether the reservation is definite. However, I will be visiting San Sebastian regardless, and plan to sample some of the pintxos bars and cideries while I'm there :-)
Refunds offered if:
Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.
