A TRIO of Spain’s most prestigious restaurants have been looted within days of each another.

Arzak, Akelarre and Subijana, in San Sebastian in the North of Spain, were all targeted in a recent wave of burglaries.

Arzak told the press he was shocked to discover that thieves had come in through the back door and stolen money from his restaurant.

According to Basque police the three crimes were ‘identical’ in nature, with the same modus operandi, leading them to believe one group of criminals is behind them all.
