Our last SS supper - Branka

When I had booked the hotel for us in San Sebastian, I had no idea quite how far it was from the town centre (a good 20-25 minutes) which meant a fair old trek most nights before and after dinner! For our final dinner, we decided to head to a funky restaurant called Branka, on the edge of one of the city's beaches and luckily only down the hill and along the beach a little bit for us. The restaurant is on the 1st floor and has some fantastic across the bay, of the beach and also looking across to the city centre. We had a lovely evening, with some fairly eccentric waitresses serving us (including one who poured txacoli all over our tablecloth rather than into the wine glass!) and some tasty food with the exception of our monkfish which was oversalted....
View from our table - pretty spectacular!!

Amuse bouche of croquet and some tasty small olives

My starter of rice with courgettes, mushrooms and giant prawn, a little salty but pretty tasty!

JD's starter of egg yolk with lots of wild mushrooms - simple but really good!

Our main of grilled monkfish - very fresh fish but oversalted, a real shame

Dessert of apple tart
