Culinary delight

Very simple decor, quick and friendly service, with focus on good food. It's a tiny place in the old town Donostia that first can be mistaken for someone's living room. The quality and presentation of foods is excellent, the wine list is impressive, the service is friendly and accommodating.

4 of us booked lunch here on the basis of previous Tripadvisor reviews. We had a stunning meal. The cuisine was of the highest order and served by people who know their job. In addition there was incredible value - we had the tasting menu at, from memory, about €35 which included two bottles of perfectly acceptable wine as well... More

We did the tasting menu after finding this place online. For the price, it was a great experience out. Do plan ahead as we started at 10pm and were there for a couple of hours for the meal. I thought the earlier dishes were the strongest and the surprises were fun. It did take a while to get served as... More

This was a really good meal, for 36 euros with wine, and three wonderful courses, plus an amuse bouche of gazpacho. We took our three teenage girls there, and it was relaxed high quality food and great service. Not cheap but very good.

I visited Muralla with my wife and eight year old daughter and had a very delicious tasting menu. The tasting menu consisted of a well seasoned king prawn salad followed by a wild mushroom raviolo with a foie gras sauce, wonderful entrecote beef with a intense jus and for desert a spectacular apple tart with amazing lemon ice cream.

Sought out the 25 euro lunch option in this simple, white-washed but elegant eatierie and it far exceeded expectations. Across the family we ate most of the menu and everything was excellent - my goats cheese salad, confit duck and apple tart were elegant, refined and a steal at the price - especially as it also included wine.

My husband & I had a delicious meal here recently, the staff were friendly & helpful & we got a table without a reservation. Enjoyed the fish starter, duck main & delicious apple pie for desert. Thought it was good value for money as the wine is included in the set price of 36euro pp.
