Good food & great service

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... read 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 food is great, and the service is very friendly and professional. We love the place and will definitely go back. Cim i Tomba highly recommended!! The only downside is that they were taking over 30 minutes to bring out the first dishes. Everything else was great!!

Great food, superb service and really friendly restaurant. My husband had the t bone steak which comes on a hot plate you cook yourself to your own liking. I had the special tossa rice with lobster which was lovely. Well priced and a great meal. Absolutely recommended.

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
