The visit to La Fabrica was on a Monday afternoon, when most restaurants in San Sebastian are closed. Quality food, adequate portions, fast and sharp service, good wine variety, acceptable prices.

Great find in San Sebastian. A classy restaurant in the old town of San Sebastian. Seemed a bit quiet, but upon further investigation, we thought we would try it. Great service, not too many tourists.

Visited in a group of 9 for lunch recently on the last day of our holiday. The restaurant had a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and service was efficient and cheerfully carried out. The food was beautifully cooked, tasted delicious and was reasonably priced for its quality. Two of our party had visited before and we would also highly recommend it... More

There is only one word to describe the pork cheeks ... wow ! When you are tired of Pinxtos and are looking for a nice sit-down menu option, this is an excellent choice.

If you want to sit and eat fine/gourmet delicious traditional cuisine la fabrica is the place. To get a table you should make a reservation, its not difficult to make but you'll get a table for sure.

Delightful service in a modern setting. The menu offers a fixed price for 3 courses including wine- the white Verdejo is superb. Alternatively choose the tasting menu which has a little more to eat for a small amount extra. We were treated to a couple of amuse bouches too- nice touch. The food was fresh and nice but generally under... More
