Mugaritz, San Sebastian, Spain, discover culinary creativity

Feeding curiosity, the senses or desire, Mugaritz seeks to satisfy the hunger of risk, game or answers and to satisfy the pleasure of surprise, of discovering and exploring the unknown. Share

Headed by the renowned chef, Andoni Luis Adurizis, Mugaritz questions the logic of the gastronomic world, rethinking the social habits and prejudices. The restaurant seeks to create a context where diners give free rein to their senses to overcome the imposition of customs.

For approximately three hours, and through about 25 creations, you will try to weave a tale of stories, gestures and emotions around the table. And also out of it. Flavors, textures and aromas that you can enjoy and feel using your hands to stimulate all the senses and to evoke your more primal customs.

Andoni Luis Adurizis undoubtedly one of the most influential chefs of our times. Throughout his career, he has prioritized both culinary evolution and an interdisciplinary approach. This has allowed him to cross the established borders, and become a rebel in the kitchen.

Aduriz’ multidisciplnary approach embraces the union between innovation in the kitchen and the most diverse sectors. Mugaritz closes for four months a year, a window which is devoted almost exclusively to creativity. “It’s a place where we sometimes even serve meals…”.

The location, with the oak on the border, offers the chef a canvas on which to unleash his creativity, as well as being a place surrounded by tradition and local products. In Mugaritz, Aduriz has managed to achieve a balance between avant-garde and traditional Basque cuisine.

Mugaritz is located in the dividing line of two Basque towns, Errenteria and Astigarraga. It is a tribute to the border (Muga, in Basque) and the oak (haritza) that for 200 years has watched this boundary, surrounded by nature.
