This restaurant is in a very nice setting along the castle wall. We both had a local dish of fish and potatoes along with sangria. The food was very good served in a very nice atmosphere.

A lovely restaurant with fantastic food. The atmosphere was wonderful. Cosy and pretty and situated in a beautiful spot along the castle wall. We all agreed the food was fantastic. A few little quirks which we found odd, such as sugary, cinnamon toast with a delicious goats cheese salad, which was also decorated with glacé cherries. To be fair the... More

We ate here twice while staying for 3 days and found the location lovely, especially at night with the lights on the castle wall. The staff are very helpful and informative giving you suggestions based on what you'd like and offering ideas for local food. We had sea bass one night Tassa de Mar style and it was excellent ,...

Still great service and great food in a perfect setting for people watching. Fresh fish and classic dining and wonderful desserts. I have never had a bad meal here, and in fact, the meals have been getting better over the years. This is the first place I eat whenever coming to Tossa.

Excellent sea food, excellent service, decent prices (fish main courses starting from 12 eur). One of the best restaurants in Tossa de Mar.

Me and my partner have just returned from tossa de mar. We ate out nearly every night and this was by far the best meal we had. The waiters are very pleasant and friendly and speak english well and could explain in detail everything on the menu. We sat outside by the castle wall which is such a beautiful setting... More

We went to the restaurant for my daughter's 10th birthday. I had the cim-i-tomba, my wife the parillada of fish and my daughter the Sole. The food was exquisite and of the very best quality. The waiters made a real fuss of my daughter, all singing happy birthday to her. Staff were attentive and friendly, the wine list complete. Thoroughly... More

The restaurant gives some good food but you should be aware of what you order. Once you forget all the basic dishes that you can eat anywhere else in the world, you have a few fish specialty that are really good. Not the best restaurant in the world but deffinately okay!

I went here twice. First time was really good, and the squid I had highly memorable. But when I went the next evening with a friend the food wasn't quite as good (admittedly it was a bit later, but they serve until 11.30pm. On the plus side, service was excellent both times, and the young lad who is front-of-house is... More

We ate at this restaurant twice during a recent stay in Tossa de Mar. The Cim i Tomba and the John Dory dishes were both delicious! We ate on the outdoor patio and found the service to be as good as the food. If I returned to Tossa I would definitely dine at this restaurant again.
