We had the set menu of 4 courses at EUR36 per head, which we found excellent value. The restaurant may look a bit formal, but it serves very high quality dishes with an emphasis on sea food. There are also meat dishes available.

Or rather, you can often tell a good restaurant by the attention to design, detail of table settings, and use of flowers and glassware. Strolling along the main street of Palamos, everything looks pretty typically like you would expect in an overpriced beach town. But La Fabrica stands out by its looks and its food. a cut above the old... More

You are in a zone with a lot of mass tourism, so expecting too much is already THE recipee to get disapointed. However, this place has decent sea-food, the gambas were just delicious, which should not be remarkable in this zone, unfortunately it is. However, the food is just not that well treated, mind you it is not a bad... More

On a chily December day, we received a warm welcome from the owner and staff of this delightful restaurant hard by the harbor of the fishing port of Palamos. Although the varied menu offers other types of items, seafood predominates, and this is definitely the place for it. The owner gets the best of what's on offer at the nearby... More

One evening we wound up at the the end of the square near the harbor and spied this restaurant where looking in, saw the tables were set in a more uppity fashion, only a couple people inside and the staff looking eager to serve. We looked at the menu outside, figured we could live with some of their dishes and... More

On two different days we had the 3-course lunch menu which contained a great choice of fish in various preparations; hake, cod fish, sargo (white seabream), monkfish, or seabream; either grilled or baked. Our favorite first course was cod fish carpaccio, our favorite dessert was cheese cake with red berries. A half bottle of delicious white wine per person was... More

A Tuesday evening in September means fewer tourists and almost empty or partially filled restaurants. El Fabrico del gel has a surplus disadvantage: it is the last restaurant at the central square/street near the Palamos harbor: when we entered, there was only 1 table occupied. And yet, they deserve better than that because food is very good and service attentive... More

We had a very good evening meal, the highlight being the beautiful fresh fish and famous Palamos prawns..delicious! Staff were good but not over bearing; we really enjoyed the evening. Pretty good value compared to some of the restaurants in the area as well..would have gone back if we hadnt run out of days;-)

I was sick the whole night right after eating there and then the whole day after... Had to take medecine to recover. So be careful, this restaurant obviously doesn't obey... More
