Karlos Arguiñano Restaurant in Zarautz, San Sebastián

Karlos Arguiñano is probably Spain's most famous TV chef. His rustic restaurant set within a former castle is in a wonderful location on the seafront in the pretty seaside town of Zarautz.

There is also the 'Hotel de Arguiñano' set in an ancient, beautiful palace called Villa Aiala.
