We had the special menu which was fine. We got foie gras, ribeye and squid and finished with cheese. Well made servicing staff was attentive. There were 4 tables occupied that evening. This is not top nitch but they cook here at a fairly high level with their heart with original ingredients

We were two couples. Two people had the tasting menu, two had the prise fix. Both included ample wine. Courses were uneven in satisfaction. All had nice presentation. Duck breast was very good. Rib eye was tough. Cod fish cheeks were too salty. Rib eyes were under salted. Cheese plate was not well balanced. It had one soft cheese and... More

Arrived into San Sebastián around 7 pm famished. We asked our taxi driver & the hotel desk staff for dinner recommendations and guess what? BOTH said La Fabrica...so off we go! Well, hands down it was our best meal in the short stay we had in San Sebastián. We tried each other's dishes & all were very flavorful & unique... More

It was ok There were too many croquetta that were that were not particularly deep in flavour. Duck was a bit over cooked but delicious Port cheek was good Cheese from this area is a amazing. Thick cut is not so good .... tiny thing sorry but it counts

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant many times and we have never been disappointed. The menu is good and changes throughout the year. Everyone that we have taken to this restaurant are fulsome in their praise for this restaurant. It is extremely good value for money. It is worth a visit. I advise booking in advance.
