La Muralla is close to the beating heart of San Sebastian, famous for its full-on food experience. This place, with its smart, simple white interior, offers you a calmer, more considered view of Europe's favourite gastro city. The starters were perfectly presented and delicious - the prawn skewers were tasty and fresh, the braised pigs cheek was a revelation and... More

Goat cheese appetizer and Prawn salad to start. Both very good. But the standout in my mind was the lamb....so tender you could cut it with a fork. With a bottle of red wine for two it came to 80 euros. Not fantastically expensive but not so inexpensive either. Nice ambiance. Excellent service. In the Old City. Gets busy so... More

Most enjoyable dinner experience. Friendly helpful staff managed to get our two mobility scooters parked up. The food was imaginative and delicious without a wide choice, suggesting that each dish was individually prepared from fresh ingredients. Altogether excellent VFM.

Food was good, but not great. Service was a little adhoc. These guys need to stop trying so hard and just do it. They are trying to be more than they are and this just gets the customers on edge!

We arrived early with two bicycles, very informally dressed, and were aided to the court yard by the Maitre D with great charm and friendliness. The food was excellent in a dignified yet amiable setting. The Dorling Kindersley guide indicated the lunch fixed price menu was a steal, it is entirely correct. A bottle of very good wine included was... More

On our last of seven nights in San Sebastian, my wife and I were lucky enough to get a reservation at this well deserved crowded restaurant, with a waiting line out the door into the street. We has the very reasonably priced Prix Fixe Menu, instead of the tasting menu, because we wanted larger portions. Everything was fabulous...not only the... More

The staff was great and so was the food. The fish soup is to die for and the duck is incredible. The assorted cheese plate is good as well
