“Fantastic food and great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

This is a great place to eat. The service is excellent, the atmosphere is good but most of all the quality of the food is exceptional. This is made even better by the incredible value for money it represents. How they offer the menu the do at 24 euros per person is amazing. It is limited but there is a good choice for even the fussiest of eaters like me. Highly recommend a visit here as i am sure you will not be disappointed.

We celebrated my daughters 21st birthday there while being on vacation in San Sebastian. The food and service were excellent! Also the price was very good! We had the menu for 24 Euro pp. The wine was delicious! We had a wonderful evening!

“Do Not Miss if You Like Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We discovered this gem by accident in the old town. The amuse bouche had a potato foam over pureed bean soup that was memorable. The rest of the two meals was photo worthy: shrimp salad, pork cheek, duck breast, and a yogurt preparation for dessert. A small glass of Pedro Jimenez sherry completed a superlative dining experience. Professional staff who were very attentive and knowledgeable provided the perfect service. The atmosphere cozy and quiet despite a large family group nearby.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

The Fabrica and it's sister La Muralla were both superb - perfect combination of really nice food. good value and excellent, friendly service. A fixed price of 24 euros for 3 courses including wine meant they were the cheapest dinners in San Sebastian and Bilbao we had and yet they were the best!

“Nice food and ambience, better alternatives exist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Had a nice dinner here with some friends some days ago. The food was really nice, but we had an even better experience at La Muralla the day before.

The service could have been better, and the lights in the restaurant was disturbing. Evene asked the waiter if it was possible to adjust the light as we where disturbed by the lights directly into our faces.

We also asked if it was possible to upgrade the wine-packet, and decided to pay nearly 20 Euro extra per person to get really good wines. It was a little bit disapointing that the wines we drunk was added to the bill, but the wine included in the todays menu where not taken into account. Meaning that we in fact paied for the wine twice!

All in all a godd restaurant, btu as said before would prefer La Muralla, very easy to compare as we had dinner here the day before.
