We sat at the terrace where it was very nice thanks to huge fans 'cause it was a very hot day. Even though restaurante was full service was aswome! we didn't... More

We went there after having walked around tossa, we knew it was maybe not the best choice because too touristic but we wanted to enjoy the castle view. We had a mejilliones starter that i can do better at home, followed by an overcooked fideua with rodaballo (recommended) and an expensive and flat sangria with cava. Globally can seem good... More

I chose this restaurant for the second night of our trip. I was very excited as I had read the reviews. We arrived an our table was ready. We could see an army of waiters running in and out of the restaurant as it was a busy Saturday night. They even have microphones to coordinate orders etc.. All a bit... More

Came here for girls night out with my mom and daughter. The service was impeccable! We came fairly early so the place was half empty. We had so much fun with our waiter. He spoke perfect English but we chose to practice our not so perfect Spanish with him. We had a delicious paella and a bottle of cava, and... More

We ate here on 16/07/15. After a discussion with one of th waiting staff outside, who was clearly passionate about the food we decided to go for the menu of teh day. It was fantastic. I left the table hardly able to move as I didn't want to not eat any of it. Great food, freshly caught and prepared with... More

We ate here on the last night of our holiday and what a way to spend the last evening! The service was top class. Instead of having a starter from the menu, we asked if we could share a main between two for the starter. The dish takes quite a while to cook but the manager was happy to do... More

Extremely welcoming and attentive staff, some of the best 'pescadito frito' and 'chipirones' I´ve ever tasted, and fantastically situated in the old part of beautiful Tossa de Mar. Good value for money, and well worth a visit.

The location of this restaurant is special, set into the old town wall. It's a sheltered spot so was warm on chilly May evenings. The food was good although not exceptional however I would recommend the Paella. The staff were super friendly and very attentive, the prices were reasonable so worth a visit.
