Nice lunch with attentive staff

We were on a day trip to the Costa Brava and came across this nice restaurant in the old town area at Tossa de Mar. It was a very hot day, and there was air con inside, so that was why we chose to eat there. The staff were friendly and we felt the food was very good value for... read more

Ate here three times during a visit in October. To be fair it is the tail end of the season and everyhting and everyone is a little weary. Food is pretty standard menu of the day options, a la carte is rather expensive. 10% tax added on at the end. Wine is OK, service pretty good but the Paella was... More

We had gone on a day trip to Tossa de Mar from Lloret and we were looking for somewhere nice to eat, something a bit special as it was my partners birthday. We came across Can Carlus and were approached by the 'front of restaurant' staff who was a very nice, pleasant and very helpful man. He explained everything on... More

We were looking for an outdoor restaurant and came across Can Carlus. The staff was energetic and offered advise on menu items. we all ordered from the excellent set menu. The food was very good and we enjoyed dining on the old street/walkway under a canopy.

This is a nice place in central location (old town). If you sit outside the surrounding is very nice. We went there twice. Both the set menu and standard menu positions are really tasty. We recommend sangria de cava to accompany your evening food. The staff is very nice, all the food is fresh and really tasty and it all... More

We have been to Tossa on three occasions now and we have eaten in about 20 restaurants, this by far was the best , we were walking around last evening looking for something a bit more up market and special, this restaurant delivers on both, I cannot understand some of the negative and sometimes rude comments, how much do you...

We have eaten here quite a few times over the last Four years. We usually go for the set menu, which is a very good price & value for money. Some of us this year just picked 2 courses, instead of the fix priced menu with 3 courses. No complaints about quality of the food, as usual a good standard.... More

Very nice place, nice service and bad food. We choose the fix meniu of 17 Euros and had a hope to have a nice food, as in other places around the price was lower (~15 Euros) and wine was included. Here we tried a seafood pealia, that was really bad (we tried in other places for better price, and know... More

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
