Current opinions: One event...Mugaritz or Akelarre?

Hi all -
Firstly, I don't want to tread old territory - i hate when people come onto a forum, post a silly question without doing any searching... But I have searched, and most of the threads I found on these were a bit dated or too brief in opinions to be useful.
The wife and I will be in San Sebastian for a few days next month. We have a lunch res at Extabarri - we'll head out for the day, wander around before and after, then head back to town to wander around until we're hungry.
The question for me is between these two for an event meal. I have reservations at both (Arzak is closed during our trip, so not on the radar).
Though I hate the term, I guess the wife and I could be considered foodies...we live in NYC, so have access to good stuff and we put time into getting reservations selecting restaurants, etc.
So: the historical opinions I've seen on this forum tend towards Akelarre - Mugaritz can be "challenging". However, these are historic. What are some current opinions?
Thanks in advance - v
