We went here on the last night of our holiday expecting an authentic experience of Catalan cuisine. Not sure if that is exactly what we got, but it was certainly enjoyable.

We found this restaurant on a small side lane as we were returning to our hotel, one look inside and we decided to make a booking. The ambience is casual and relaxed with very good, not exagerated service. The food was fresh, cooked to perfection and a good choice between seafood and local specialities. The prices are very reasonable. Incredibly... More

Recently taken here by a friend and can't say enough about our experience. This iconic restaurant is overseen by a family that has taken it upon themselves to preserve the history of the famous writer philosopher Pitarra. Of particular note we enjoyed the kid goat and ox tail along with the appetizer of fava beans, shrimp and proscutto. We ate... More

Not for all budgets, but the quality is unmatched. Quaint place, perfect if you like old watches. Excellent food and service. There is a private dinning room you should not miss. It is preserved as it was when Pitarra was living there. [I wish I could write this review in Catalan, but it is not allowed :(]
