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 favorites like La Gamba across the street. If the night is pleasant, eat at one of the outside tables and watch the rest of the tourists walk by looking for a place to eat and not having a clue this is the best choice.

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 choice for this place, but the prices and the setting promise more. Invest more in the kitchen

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 wholesale fish market, and it is prepared in deliciously creative ways. We enjoyed tasty cigallas (langostinos) grilled in butter and salt, huge and tender ocean scallops from Galicia, succulent shrimp served with a variety of lettuce and crunchy pancetta rolls, a delightful concoction of tasy eggplant wrapped around codfish mousse and shrimp, and densely tasty fish and shrimp cake with a white sauce. Tasty desserts - baked apple tatin with vanilla ice cream, and a tangy lime sorbet - completed a supremely delicious meal. The owner and staff were delightful and cheerfully attentive, in spite of the busy Sunday afternoon crowd. It's a bit pricey, but worth it, for such a uniquely delicious and creatively-prepared meal.
