Enjoyed a meal here with extended family. It took 3 attempts to get a restaurant as it is very popular. Lovely restaurant, well decorated, staff well turned out and extremely polite and helpful. All starters were delicious from prawns to pate! Mains were delicious - stone bass was delicious and plenty of food on plates! Desserts were great too -... More

We made our booking at noon and had a wonderful outside table table. Cod with potato foam & salmon with risotto were the two choice - elegant presentation - taste exceeded presentation. Great service, good value - understand why it is #1 in Luz

Fabrica is located beside the beach and enjoys a great location. It is probably the most upscale restaurant in Luz with efficient waitresses all dressed in long navy blue dresses. It is also the hardest restaurant to get into if you do not have a reservation. All tables are full and if not have a reserved sight on them. We... More

It took three attempts to get a table here but glad we did. Firstly, they got colouring book & pencils for our 3 year old - off to a great start! We had various drinks from the menu. The Rose Duet G&T was super as was the margarita. Starters were perfect size and not too filling. Main courses were very... More

We booked this restaurant 2days in advance and still only just managed to make a reservation, highly recommended you book a table as early on in... More

We went here twice. The first time with friends and the food was excellent. Both starters & main course. Everyone was satisfied. We were also given some good recommendations of other restaurants by then very bubbly owner. We enjoyed so much we decided to go back as a couple. However that was a whole other experience. Not so good. In... More

Needed to book in advance, something I try to avoid when on holiday. Well worth it. Food was good quality, staff very friendly, quick service, not cheap (for us anyway) but on a par with several other places we went to in Luz. Next time we go to resort, we intend making several trips to this establishment

Highly recommended if you want that special meal. Everything top quality. Belly pork was superb as were all the other courses. Perfect sticky toffee pudding. Accompanied by some great wines too

We like both the friendly atmosphere as well as the really good service. The food is generally of top quality with a broad range of alternatives. One of our favorites in Luz.

Lovely welcome on arrival by the lovely staff. Food fantastic along with the atmosphere made for a fantastic first visit so we decided to book and enjoy our last evening with them. Again great service and food, my only regret was I did not pick the pork belly for a second time. Nothing to do with poor food but the... More
