Amelia is located in the Romantica district of San Sebastian, hidden in a little busy street not far from the Cathedral del Buen Pastor. After 7 months opened, with a hard work and dedication, it gained its first Michelin star. Ours is a modern restaurant, with seating for 22 diners. We serve only tasting menus, combining different flavors, textures, and memories in our creations, to make this trip a unique experience.

Our work philosophy focuses on using seasonal and sustainable raw materials and the revaluation of forgotten products. We work mainly with small producers who share our values and who visit the markets to provide us with fresh and top-quality products daily. The wine cellar of our sommelier shares the same philosophy: drawing from different countries of the world, making sure its methods of production are organic or biodynamic. We have chosen to serve 90% of our wines by the glass, giving our diners the opportunity to taste the greatest possible variety from our stock.
Welcome to Amelia!

Chef Paulo Airaudo

Chef Paulo Airaudo was born in Argentina to a family of Italian immigrants. Since the age of 18 he has worked around the world, including in Mexico, Peru and in a number of European countries. In Europe he gained experience in legendary restaurants such as Arzak (3*Michelin) in San Sebastián, The Fat Duck (3*Michelin) near London and Magnolia (1*Michelin) in Italy.
In May 2015 he opened La Bottega, a forward-thinking modern trattoria in the historic part of Geneva. Just four months later, in October 2015, the restaurant received its first Michelin star, an extraordinary achievement. Now Airaudo has created his first solo restaurant in the global culinary centre of excellence of San Sebastián, taking him back to where his European adventure originally began.
As he explains: My family loves San Sebastián. I love San Sebastián. We’re happy here which is the best possible reason to build this restaurant. At the same time, this magical town has the eyes of global chefs and foodies upon it, which in a way makes it possible for me to offer my food to the world.
After 16 years of cooking and seeking out culinary excellence all over the world, the nomad chef has finally found his home – even the name of this ambitious project is named after his daughter Amélie, which means this time he’s here to stay.
This time, it’s personal.
