Spain's Michelin Restaurants: What do they cost?

This is a common question within most of the threads and one I know I had when I was planning my trip to Spain. I hope this will help others plan their meals and I hope people will update this thread as they go. The prices are per person and exclude tax and tip. So here we go...

Arzak - 170 Euros for the tasting menu

Martin Berasategui - 165 Euros for Martin's 'Greatest Hits' menu

Mugaritz - 120 Euros for the tasting menu

Prices as of October, 2010.

      Alkimia (1 star, Barcelona), Nov. 2010:
      The grown ups ordered the least expensive lunch tasting menu which said that it involved a choice of 3 courses. But they brought out 6 courses including two different amuse bouches and one extra dessert course (this might have been because they liked our kids). 38 Euros per person before tax, gratuity and beverages. Kids ordered a la carte (a delicious entrecote and a so-so chicken canneloni) but do not recall price because the a la carte prices were not on the menu.

    2. Comerç 24 (1*, Barcelona) ; 72 euros for the 7 course tasting menu (total cost just around 100e with 4 glasses of wine)

      1. Bearing in mind that I think the Michelin awards for Spain are very imminent so what's in and what's out may change within days:

        Tristan - varies from €82 for 2 courses, to €155 for 6 courses
        Es Raco des Teix - approx €80 for 3 courses
        Es Moli den Bou - approx €80 for 3 courses
        Plat d'Or - €85 for 3 courses

        Restaurant MB - I believe this to be around €120 for tasting menu.

        1. We'll know on Nov. 25 from San Sebastián whether the following keep their stars or add a star, but for 2010, here are the Navarra one stars-

          In Pamplona

          Europa--short menú Eugenia (2 courses), 45 eurosñ
          lunch business menu, 47 euros,ñ
          degustation menu, 62 euros
          (all include wine/coffee/vat)

          Rodero--menú para gustar, 55 eurosñ
          menú para degustar, 77 euros
          (both include wine, coffee, vat)

          Pamplona environs-

          El Molino de Urdániz- degustation menu, 70 euros

          1. Just announced, Michelin 2011, Barcelona

            New one stars-

              Just ate at Hisop and agree their new star is much deserved. Incredible food and service. As of last week, Hisop's tasting menu for dinner cost 48 euros, worth it without a doubt. The ala cart menu at Hisop is also reasonably priced.

              The tasting menus at Alkimia (one star and also excellent) are 65 euros for "traditional" menu and 84 for their full "Alkimia" menu.

              The two tasting menus at Akelarre in San Sebastian, 3-stars, are both 140 euros. They do have an ala cart menu with very high prices, think 50+ euros for many of the dishes. You would prob pay 100-120 euros for an app, entree, and dessert so I'd recommend doing the tasting and getting three times as many dishes for slightly more.

            2. I suppose the contraversial award here is going to be Gadus. Not least as it's been closed since August.

              Hope to be eating at Zaranda next September - €65 for three courses. €73 & €85 for the tastings. As three of the new Barcelona ones, it's another hotel based restaurant - I wonder if that reflects more on current cooking in the Catalan speaking areas or if its more a reflection on Michelin.

                I think part is due to Michelin taste for elegance and part due to new the high-end hotels opening in Barcelona. The hotels have the finance to lure famous chefs to their 'named' restaurants, either as a part-owner or a lucrative consulting fee. This high-end hotel and famous chef collaboration is trend happening all over the world.

                1. re: PBSF

                  That might bode well for a place in my metro area. The existing 2* chef vowed to bring a star to the city when he went into partnership with the boutique hotel chain. If Michelin are now favouring hotel based restaurants then he might be in luck in January.

                  1. re: Harters

                    In discussing Michelin and hotel dining, I am getting away from the essence of this thread. Just want to make a comment before the site moderator move this thread to another board. This trend is a mixed blessing; on one hand, it can bring exciting dining experience to more places, or it might just bring 'clones without substance' as famous chef sell their names for a fee and do not deliver worthy food. Am sure we can come up with current examples of both.

              2. An update to Mugaritz-

                Adoni's tasting menus now cost-

                105 for the shorter Ertzak menu
                135 for the longer Mugak menu
                plus 8% vat
