This busy and innovative chef has come a long way and nowadays he stamps his personality on each of his dishes. His more local experience ranges from the Kokotxa restaurant in the old town, with Muguruza, to Martín Berasategui’s Bodegón Alejandro, and includes Hondarribia’s Abarka. However, Trincado also sought out new experiences overseas, continuing his training with Didier Garbage in Landes, La Perouse in Paris and Labota in Geneva.
However, without doubt those who have most influenced his love of the stove are the owner Faustina Zaldua and his father Mitxel, both, along with Mari Carmen Trincado, at the helm of the Mirador de Ulía for decades. This makes Rubén the third generation in the same restaurant.
He won the Martín Berasategui-Alcorta Mini-Kitchen Award in 2006. He recently received the 1st Michelin star in 2011
Rubén Trincado offers innovate cooking, free of complexes but rooted in traditional cooking. This is where he has inherited his passion for the flavours and aromas to which he then applies the most avant-garde techniques to surprise diners with the creations on their plates, but above all with the precision.
The building housing the Mirador de Ulía restaurant was constructed in the 1950s by the San Sebastian architect José Antonio Mendizábal. He purchased it after becoming captivated by the views from the location. The building can be seen from almost every point in the city.
In 1966, the chef Faustina Zaldua, trained in the best tradition of San Sebastian gastronomy, understood that such a privileged location should be open to the public. He bought the building and opened his restaurant in May of that same year.
The gardens, described by some as an authentic oasis on Ulia Mountain, are perfect for holding receptions or other celebrations.
The main dining room, decorated by Juan María Navascués, is where large meetings can be held, never losing the perspective of the views. However, the terrace is the truly magical place for contemplating the unbeatable views which start at Zurriola beach and on clear days stretch out along the entire Guipuzcoan coastline, finally disappearing behind the Getaria peninsula.
We want you to enjoy your time with us and as a result Malen Ugalde and Manu Garrido will advise you on the selection of dishes and drinks.
We have a long history of organising wedding banquets and large events. These are very special days and care needs to be taken over every last detail.
This is why we customise everything, from the drinks in the gardens to the banquet in the central dining room of our restaurant. There is a wide and varied choice of menus, which you can also change to suit your taste.
This personal treatment means that, among other things, we never host two weddings at the same time.
A team led by Mari Carmen Ugalde will look after you and she will use her extensive experience in hosting these celebrations to advise you.
