Just steps from the port and the Basilica of Saint Mary, on one of the streets with most flavor of the historic center of San Sebastian, is one of the must-see stops on the endless gastronomic tour of the city. Halfway between tradition and innovation, chef Iñigo Bozal offers a trip to the “future past” through classic recipes that have been reinterpreted. His temple is known as “La Fábrica” (“The Factory”), a name that encapsulates the complexity of his knowhow: producing taste sensations representative of the product and paying tribute to the vibrant local creativity.
In a dining room dressed with snowy-white tablecloths and exposed bricks, diners have access to a restaurant that boasts 14 years’ experience and which has managed to adapt to the changing movements of each new time. With a daily set menu and a tasting menu available on weekdays, as well as a lot of unique individual dishes to choose from and a special set menu for weekends, La Fábrica offers culinary delights that include meats, fish, and vegetables of extraordinary quality. You mustn’t leave without trying the campero kokotxas cod scrambled eggs, or the roasted octopus with La Vera paprika, as well as the premium Iruki cutlet with piquillo peppers, and the Iberian pork cheek confit.
Iñigo Bozal has been able to bring a modern touch to certain classic creations that we are all familiar with. This can be seen in the house tiramisu and the ”mamia” (curd) served by La Fábrica, whose formulas respect the original flavor but multiply it in a way that only Bozal is able to pull off. Because of the restaurant’s unique signature dishes and privileged location, it is quite recommendable to book your table in advance. The experience will be worth it.
