We went here yesterday after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. Yet found ourselves quite disappointed. The restaurant is 'modern' decorated .... All white. The staff is friendly, but they get scared when you ask a simple question in English. The food was, simply put completely tasteless. We had foie -filled ravioli with mushrooms for starters, but couldn't taste anything but... More

Booked for our wedding anniversary after seeing reviews on here. Opted for the tasting menu (6 courses, 31 eur PP inc house wine) and it did not disappoint. Have been to some pretty good and pricey restaurants in my time which were no way as good as this. Service also very good - we discovered this is the sister restaurant... More

Visited after reading reviews on TripAdvisor- Booked earlier in the day for a table for two at 8:30 pm. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived and we were promptly seated at our table. Two front of house staff waiting on. We waited nearly 20 minutes before being acknowledged. Then another couple came in and sat on the next table... More

First off - make reservations! We were just so fortunate we were the first party for lunch that Saturday without a reservation and La Muralla was able to accommodate us - all the other parties who came had reservations and the place was packed in 30 minutes. La Muralla is centrally located by Old Town and was highly recommended by... More

We found this restaurant based on other Trip Advisor reviews and also as a recommendation from Michelin. I'm not sure why this restaurant doesn't have a Michelin star. We had the Tasting Menu which started with a warm Asparagus Soup topped with Potato Foam. That was followed by a Chilled Seafood Salad with 2 tender Shrimp on top. Next came... More

Beautifully presented dishes and attentive staff in an attractive setting - but just short of what I'd expected. Perhaps Basque cooking is just not to my taste. Very good value still - maybe I just expected too much.

With good luck we got a table without reservation on Saturday night as the place was fully booked. The service was very warm. Price for three courses and a bottle of wine for two was 66 €. The fish and shellfish dishes were delicious. The place was something between fine dining and more casual one.
