We wanted to go far asay from the high crowded places of cadaque, so we started to climb in the inner town. We weren't disappointed. We found out this little restaurant owned by a little familly. The cook was fresh and with a lovely presentation. The casolete was delicious !! My wife ate a curr, very spicy (green) and she... More

This a cute little cafe/restaurant tucked away in one of the back streets of Cadaques. It offers a good range of food for a good price. I had a goat'a cheese salad which was superb and some kebe. Try and sit on the street if you can. It's really quite nice. Curiously, there were quite a number of cats visiting... More

The restaurant look so nice, but the food is not good at all. Beef , chicken is deep-frozen, very bad quality. The portions are small and expensive.

I’ve been visiting Cadaques since 1998. In all these years I’ve tried a lot of restaurants. Some of my favorites have closed – Cala Bona, Chez Pierre, to name a couple. Others weren’t able to maintain the quality with the passage of time. Yet others I never went back to. But El Gato Azul has been one of my regular... More

Beautiful little restaurant. A simple menu with few dishes and lots of cultural variety. The tajine was amazing, great taste and the lamb was soft and not at all chewy. Chicken with mint sauce and green curry were also good. The decor and owner give a lot if character to this place, and a bit of a French feel.

Really good food. I had the lamb tajine. Very good. Small restaurant with good staff. The only downside is that less able bodied will have a hard time with the street.

We found this place occasionally when it was raining on the street and it seemed so pretty, calm and warm. And it is fully so. The only thing is that you receive your order not very quick but like in 10-15 mins, but this was ok. Food is good, we tried toasts, really good. atmosphere is very pleasant, one cat... More

Having been lucky enough to come to Cadaques for over 20 years, we've seen many restaurants come & go so it was great to try this new addition! Just up from the latest 'hip' bar in the town, don't let the twee cat theme put you off! The food was excellent and quite unusual for the area, and decently priced... More

We went to El Gato Azul for dinner. The place is small, I would say less than 30 seats, but nice. The food on the menu is not your typical restaurant food, and this was a clear plus, but the taste was more ok than good. The only reason why the restaurant gets 3 stars instead of 4 is the... More
