varied choice of menus

Went with friends on Sunday night. Very quiet only 3 tables. The food is well presented and dishes mainly cooked sous vide. All had that very soft feel including 64 degree egg. Found it a little sloppy (think a poached would have been better). There are a lot of elements that work well but... read more

We had the tasting menu which was delicious, very generous and exceptional value. 70 euros for 2 including wine and coffee. We booked on line and the table was ready, staff were helpful and spoke English.

We were advised to try this reataurant by the staff at the NH Aranzazu and were not at all disappointed. We chose the tasting menu which consisted of five courses together with a bottle of rose wine that was quite drinkable. The total price at just under 70 euros was really good value for money. The staff were perhaps a... More

My husband and I went for dinner on a Monday evening. Make sure you make a reservation- it was packed. I ordered the 25 euro menu (plus VAT) and my husband got the menu de degustation (31 euros). Usually most menus have 1 or 2 courses that are so-so, La Muralla was an exception to this. Every course was outstanding.... More

This is a very small restaurant with excellent food. Very good value as well. The dishes were quite filling and delicious as was dessert! I don't recommend the house red that was included with the meal but ordered a lovely Rioja reserve which was delicious and well worth the very modest cost. The server was helpful and very efficient. We... More

A simply decorated, stylish restaurant with a menu to match. Not fussy but enough choice and with a tasting menu available. Beautifully presented and extremely well cooked food. Good wine choice and super helpful staff. Worth booking in advance at the weekend

A great find. Exceptional value for the modest price. We chose the 6 course tasting menu and enjoyed every dish; an imaginative menu cooked correctly and well presented. We paid €68 for 2 including almost 2 bottles of good house wine! Service very attentive but not too formal. The best meal of our trip.

This small restaurant allows you to taste delicious dishes in the very heart of Old Town. The quality/price rate is superb. You need to book in advance as they do not have much space. But it is worth a visit. My favourite is 'carrilleras'.

Our taxi let us off with directions to walk up the pedestrian only street and we soon found our La Muralla restaurant where we had 8 pm reservations. The restaurant was decorated in white, contemporary style. It has a good reputation for traditional Basque food, but the primary reason I had selected it was that most of the better San... More

A gourmand friend recommended this restaurant and he was on point. It's on one of the "side" streets of the old city and can be a little hard to locate but do try. The relatively small setting is white table cloth elegant, the service crisp and the food excellent. The fixed price menus at 25-31 Euros really fit the bill.... More
