Great little restaurant near the sea front

As many others have said, this does not feel as touristy as other places to eat in the area. We had a very good fixed menu dinner for 20 Euros a head and done children's meals. The later were a bit of a mixed bag. Great value pizzas but the chicken croquettes were a bit small. The menu meals... read more

My friend and I ordered a steak, cooked medium to well-done. Sadly they were very raw inside. And though we sent them back to the grill, they were still undercooked. Also our waiter was very inattentive. Can't really recommend this restaurant.

We tried to get into this restaurant twice without any success so when we finally got a table we were really looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately, we were really disappointed. The meal started well with calamari and mussels which were fantastic, however, the main meals left a lot to be desired. My boyfriend asked the waiter which prawns... More

I loved this place! The staff was friendly and we enjoyed a good Spanish cuisine - we ate Paella and Crema Catalana. It was a nice, clean, romantic and secluded place;

Although they are some tourists that choose this restaurant, the main kind of the customers are locals (people that repeat their visit). Then, no chance to fail! It has a good menu (20€, without beverages and coffe). You can find cheaper options nearby, but the quality of the food and the service worth it.

Nice food and good service. Roughly 14 euros for a three course meal. The cod with a garlic sauce was absolutely amazing! My dad and I had the same and both thoroughly enjoyed it.

We usually don't go back twice to a place since we like to explore but we ate twice in this restaurant during our stay in Tossa because it had very good food and the owner and waiters were very friendly and kind and loved our baby girl. The set menu is convenient and has good choice of dishes. To try.

This is the most kid friendly place we have found in the area. A separate kids menu, plastic cups with straws, high chairs, etc. the menu of the day was a great deal for really good seafood.

We had a dinner here after the beach and visit to the castle/fortress. The food was excellent - the pizza was real italian style, and the meat was well tasty as well the complimentary bread. The location on the beach is perfect, and had a Nice view. We will for sure come back!

Great location next to the Castle with nice view for people watching. It has both outdoor and indoor seating. Their specialty is the Paella de Señorito and it was delicious. Service was very attentive.
