Superb!

Knowing we just had a day trip to Toledo, I searched online beforehand for a good restaurant there and so glad I did, as it was easily the best 3 course 'menu of the day' of our holiday.

11/4-2013 at 20:00 we went to this "fabolous" restaurant. It was closed without any sign of plans to open. No signs of opening hours. It looked dead. Sorry. Rolf Larsen

After traveling around in Spain for over a month, I have not had a better meal. The food was so fresh and wonderfully flavored. Ah! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! (I highly recommend the bacon wrapped scallops to start with and the chocolate soufflés to finish.) The restaurant is very small, but the wait is worth it!... More

Simply excellent - the food (quality, taste, ammount), service - friendliness, speed, atmosphere - simple and warm... After spending a week in Spain and passed 1300 km I can definitely say - this is the best restaurant a have been in the country

Dining at Restaurante Fabula (aka Fazula) was, quite simply, a revelation. It can be found in a rather unassuming backstreet of Toledo and yet offers the most delicious and authentic Spanish cuisine in a taberna patronised almost exclusively by local Toledans. We were greeted by the owner Raoul who guided us through the menu and offered his recommendations. Il Cad... More

We were visiting Toledo for the night and heard this restaurant got good reviews. It deserved the good reviews. The wait staff were funny and attentive, the atomosphere was fibrant yet not to noisy to hear our companions and the food was delicious. There were four of us and we shared a plate of muchrooms, eggplant, and anchovies. The chocolate... More

We ate at El Embrujo the night before and that is owned by La Fabula's owner's father. We loved both tavernas and had wonderful meals in both. The staff were very welcoming and hard working in Fabula and again, advised us not to order too much as we could always add on orders. Wine excellent and we loved every dish... More

Toledo. About 2.00 pm on a weekday. Grey Autumn skies. It's starting to rain. And the restaurant we have been aiming for - El Embrujo - is all booked out. So, the owner sends one of his waiters to show us Fabula, which is just up the street and round the corner and which, we are told, is "very similar".... More
