Inexpensive and worthwhile

Lovely surroundings; especially through the restaurant and out to the garden room. Very friendly and attentive staff. Excellent value for money food. For two starters, two main courses of lobster paella, a bottle of local wine, a bottle of water and an Irish coffee, the bill came to 74 euro. The... read more

SO DELICIOUS that we went twice and ordered the same each time (not something we'd usually do). Perfect paella, and the sponsors (whitebait) and crema catalana were ace too. Recommended.

Nice atmosphere and surroundings, friendly staff. The food was good, but they got the order completely wrong and when I complained that this was not what we ordered they insisted that the grilled, beef like meat on my plate was baked pork. The wine was corked, and the flan for pudding would have been better without the lashings of cream... More

Good quality food and service - strongly suggest you reserve a table in advance if you want to eat outside. Frequented by plenty of locals which is always a good sign.

Visited twice Xabec restaurant in this small Spanish orientated seaside holiday village a couple of streets back from the beach view. It is only open April to November. Food is fish orientated with Paella & local fish being at the forefront, but meat dishes are on offer-the steak fillet is great. The ambience is that of a family friendly local... More

My wife and myself visited Xabec on a Friday night. We ordered cod carpaccio and clams for starters. They were good but only just. We both thought they could be seasoned with some more inspiration. We had paella as the main dish and that was wonderful! As to drinks, we ordered 0.5 l of white wine from the menu which... More

Visited here twice during a recent trip to Calella. Loved the paella so had it for three both times with some sangria. Lovely place, great service and delicious food.

Best mussels in Calella de Parafrugell so far, excellent Iberian pork and superb coconut ice cream with pineapple dessert. Highly recommend. Great night out.

kitchen opens at seven and they let us sit down early - which with two young children was a relief. The menu was varied and the food we had enjoyed by all - both tapas and mains. They have a nice courtyard, we didn't need to book but suggest if you wanted to eat later that maybe necessary. Will eat... More
