On our recent stay in Tossa we have dined here on a good few occasions.We found the staff to be most pleasant & attentive without being pushy in trying to get you to dine there. On the first evening we dined there we decided on the tourist set menu, which has to be said gives the diner an extensive choice... More

We stopped off here for some Tapas. The food was very tasty and we had some lovely wine to accompany it. An enjoyable lunch!

This Reatrount was located next to a castle. When I was reading the menu the man tried to lure us into his premise by offering us a free drink . When we sat down the owner removed the ash trays but then there was no salt or pepper on the table which I think is necessary to provide. How Ever... More

The chipirones were greasy and tepid at best.I was not expecting anything great and was not surprised. The house wine was pleasant but the service was haphazard. Not on my list for this year.

Ate at Can Carlus last night and it was excellent. All meals and drinks were top quality, especially the paella. The staff were excellent, attentive but not intrusive. The bill was 125 euros despite us hitting the wine list hard so good value as well.

This resteraunt is superb value for money. The service was good and the staff were courteous. We had the set menu which was good value and the wine which was recommended for us was very nice. All-in-all great value and although the place won't set the culinary world alight it's good value and worth visiting!

It's hard to make great paella. It's NOT hard to make good paella, though. So why did we wind up with slop at Can Carlus? We weren't expecting great paella at Can Carlus -- a restaurant with a big menu can't devote the time or burner space necessary to produce great paella with the characteristic crunchy caramelized bottom layer. But... More

We ate here one evening during our stay in Tossa de Mar. We had mixed paella and a litre of sangria. The food here is fantastic, in a great setting in the old town. The service is great the guys attend to your every need despite the restaurant being very busy!
