Worst meal in Cadaques

We went to this restaurant as it was recommended by our hotel - later found that they were owned by the same people ! We went in the morning to book a table for the evening - I now realize why they were so surprised ! When we arrived for our dinner, there was nobody elase there and by 11.30pm... read more

Had almost given up on finding somewhere that served a vegetarian paella on a recent trip to Cadaques when we were lucky enough to find this lovely restaurant overlooking the sea. Service was prompt and attentive and our wine was crisp and fresh. It was reassuring to have to wait for the paella as this is a dish that should... More

The restaurant has an excellent food and a beautiful view. I recommend you to have lobster, fish and squid. This dish was the favorite of Dali and Gala. It is delicious!!!! The restaurant is very simple, familar and cosy. Ypu should try if you go to Cadeques.

We visited this restaurant during a day trip to Cadaques, we say on the patio which was a wonderful view. Service was very friendly and the food was superb. I ordered the Mediterranean salad (goat cheese, fresh bacon, raisins, tomatoes, pickled carrots-absolutely delicious), and the cannelloni shells with seafood. By cannelloni shells, they mean- giant clam shells filled with broiled... More

The food in this place isn't bad but the prices seem somewhat steep for the quality you're getting (again, not bad but not always worth the price either). The paella was alright and the octopus-tapas. The restaurant has view to the sea but it's a closed place. So if what you want is the 'mediterranean feel' you can feel a... More

I visited this restaurant in February 2013 when there were not so many tourists in town. My friends and I really enjoyed the food. It was not 5 Michelin star restaurant and we did not expect elaborate menu. Consequently, food was quite simple in preparation, but fresh and delicious. I would say it was kind of homemade style food, full... More

We don't usually fall for them, but a long day of driving and a busy town made for a poor decision If I could give lower than one star I would Prices are way to high, quality non existent, atmosphere poor, the greed of owners overwhelming! Paella was €20 each for a dish of rice that had a chicken neck... More

Seduced by the location, didn't look at reviews before we sat down. Great view of the bay. The best I can say is the food did not make us sick but we sure wasted a lot of money on what was the worst meal in Spain.
