Delicious Sea Food

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.

The only thing you will remember from this restaurant is the view on the Cadaques "bay". You could as well sit down on a bench 10 meters from there and enjoy the same view for free. We ended in this restaurant with our kids after having found closed doors in some other places (Beginning of May not all restaurants are... More

As other review commented- the location is very good. But that's it- service is poor, the food is very low standard and the prices are high. As the airman74 states- DO NOT go to this restaurant there are many other restaurants in Cadaques where you will find the view and decent to very good food.

The location of this Restaurant is just breath taking. food is awful, it looked like precooked food, service not professional and terribly expensive.AVOID THIS RESTAURANT. You can find several options in town. Owner of the restaurant was quiet rude.
