San Sebastian - Question about tasting menus at Akelarre, Arzak, Mugaritz, Martin Berasategui, etc...

Three of us will be in San Sebastian for a week and are all big lovers of food, especially Basque food. We will dining mostly at pintxos bars but want to try some of the more expensive places too.

I see that most of the expensive restaurants have tasting menus in the EUR 135-200 range.

My questions:
1) Will they allow three people to share a single order of the tasting menu or does each person have to get something individually?
2) If we go for lunch will we be missing out on the true dining experience or is lunch a good alternative when on a tight budget?
