Good food and friendly staff

This restaurant has a great menu of small but very tasty dishes. Prices are between 25 and 31 euros for the tasting menu which included 3 starters, 1 main and 1 dessert plus gazpacho and an ice cream. Wine was also included. I highly recommend this restaurant in this area of San Sebastián.

Recommended in DK's 'Eyewitness Travel Northern Spain' so we gave it a try for lunch. Glad we did as we'd had enough pintxos over previous 4 days. Haven of peace. Staff attentive, smiling and efficient. Set 4 course lunch was superb for price of 27 euros per head.Would most definitely return.

Uninspired attempts at the classics. The atmosphere is quiet and slightly formal and the prices are extremely low (tasting menus are 25-40 euro), but the food shows lack of attention to seasoning, texture, and dish composition. Pasta dough was mushy. Vegetables lacked flavor. Pork cheeks served with unappetizing and cold pumpkin puree. The cod with ratatouille was lovely.

The food was fantastic and the service too, and it wasn't an expensive meal at all. I raccomand this restaurant to all of those who want to have a nice experience in the center of San Sebastian, one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited.

We managed to book a table to this restaurant on a short notice for our day trip to San Sebastian. It's a really small and intimate place so you better book in advance. My wife especially liked the starter salad, and the roasted lamb shoulder I had for main course was easily the best lamb dish I have ever tasted!... More

Beautiful 3 course lunch with a gorgeous Spanish rosé. Nice and quite place, away from the hustle of the pinxos bars. Although English was not their strong point their service and attention to detail was fantastic

La Muralla offered a nice 3 course meal with a great amount of choices. Grab a reservation first as I lucked out and got a table for 2 right at 8 when they open. But this place is an amazing visit for anyone who loves seafood. I had the King prawn salad with avocado reduction for a starter, thr fried... More

Took pot luck and booked online on a hot Friday afternoon that we arrived in San Sebastian , to prevent being turned away disappointed from busy restaurants on a Friday night. It was a small place , very cool and comfortable and friendly staff. The choice of a 3 course menu with wine for 36euros ( + 10% tax )... More
