Tucked off the main street, Es Balconet has a lovely atmosphere, really friendly staff and great food. We were lucky to get a table on the balcony and enjoyed the set menu whilst our daughters ate a la carte. The waitress was very friendly, attentive and helpful. We arrived just as the place opened and at it filled up within... More

By far and away the best dinner in Cadaques. A small restaurant with a chef who knows what he is doing producing excellent dishes. Not the cheapest around but the whole experience justifies the price - for us, euro 99.44. You are a bit of a captive audience in Cadaques by way of its location (beautiful by the way) and... More

The Es Balconet is a small restaurant in a side street up from the beach area in Cadaques. It is well worth searching out as it offers high quality cuisine at reasonable prices. The chef knows what he is doing and we all enjoyed the food. The staff are friendly and will offer advice on the menu. The dining room... More

My wife and found this restaurant with tripadvisor. Away from all the touristic crowd, up a rocky pavement is this amazing restaurant! Service was excellent! Food was terrific! I had the entrecôte steak with a touch of truffle oil. Price wasn't cheap, but good things are never cheap!

This gem of a restaurant is hidden away in the winding small streets behind Cadaques seafront but definately worth a visit. In fact, we ate here twice during our 5 day visist to Cadaques as the food and atmosphere was so good. The set menu of Paella (min. 2 people) was the best quality and value we came across. (15...

We only had one day in Cadaques and I'm sooo glad we chose to eat here. The staff were lovely and the position being hidden away was great relief from the tourist-y promenade. I had the most amazing scallop and monkfish broth with spinach- it was so divine. My partner had seared tuna which was delicious too. Unfaultable restaurant.

Delightful small restaurant with friendly and helpful staff fluent in English and French. Catalan cooking with Asiatic influences. Good quality, very tasty food, very good wines, and sensible prices. Thoroughly recommended. Only caution: its location (upstairs in a steep alley) makes it probably unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems.
