We decides to have lunch here as part of a relaxing day with Burgau sadly not fully up and running due to it being early season. Friends recommended A Fabrica and it lives up to its nr 1 ranking as it is fabulous. A varied lunch menu provides plenty of choice and having opted for the quesillades we were treated... More

We were recommended this restaurant and were not at all disappointed. Fabulous food - I have never tasted chicken that good, others in the party had Lamb, Prawns and Pork - and every plate went back empty. Beautifully presented and friendly service - definitely a return visit.

A good buzz when most of Praia da Luz sleeps! Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Inventive menu well executed.

We've been travelling to the area each summer for the past 8 years and always eat at Fabrica in Luz numerous times during our stay. The food is consistently good and the dishes are always imaginative. It's great for families and couples alike. Service is good to. We really look forward to going back again this summer.

This restaurant is above the norm in its dependability and assurance of good food, always attentive, mannered staff and predictably elegant company. Some portions of mains are relatively small but invariably delicious. With appetizers and desserts, all one's culinary needs are catered to. At this comfortable restaurant, much thoughtfulness is invested into the presentation and taste of every item on... More

Been here on many occasions and the food is always absolutely outstanding and great value. Superb atmosphere in one of Luz's traditional buildings - it used to be the cannery for the fishing industry. Need to book well in advance to secure a table during busy times.

Discovered this by accident driving down the wrong street. Now been 3 times, every time fabulous. Today a set menu for New Year's Day lunch €40 a head complete bargain, I would pay that for the starter at home. The chef is 23 and incredible. Great front of house in the shape of Libby, but all friendly, family run establishment.

A really lovely experience. Waitress/owner was very personable, from booking on Monday to arriving on Wednesday and talking to my inlaws via FaceTime. But most importantly the food was beautiful and delicious and well priced. My husband had fillets of sea bass with curried mussels and I had braised pork belly with stuffed cabbage leaves, mashed potato and crackling -... More
