Among a range of touristy restaurants with tables to the village square, we chose Can Roura for a dinner based on very positive reviews here. Eating in the courtyard was nice and quieter than in the restaurants around. Prices too elevated Can Roura from its direct neighbours, with the starters in particular being quite expensive. The service was excellent though... More

Had an absolutely wonderful lunch here after a morning at the beach. We sat on their back patio which small and enclosed but very private and enjoyable. We both ordered their fixed week day menu and had a .5 liter of wine, water, and a couple of choices for a starter, main plate and dessert, all for less than 30... More

Warm wellcome, quick service, waiter very attentive without being intrusive. Food was great, the foie was excellent, one of the best I ever tasted. Will come back for sure.

We had lunch here after making reservations (which i think is definitely a good idea during the summer season). Although it took us a while to find the restaurant, it was all worth it! We had a wonderful 3 course lunch, 2 glasses of wine and 2 G&Ts for 70 euros (for the 2 of us) this was on a... More

We were tempted by some of the reviews at tripadvisor after visiting l'Estartit. We were searching for good food and not a touristic place. At the end we finished in a very touristic area just two minutes from the beach and wonderful views of the Mediterranean but even though the are is always crowded with tourists the restaurant was a...

In the off season, this restaurant is only open by reservation which is easily done by phone or email. It’s a gourmet experience, quite different from most other places around and Joan obviously takes great pride in his cooking. He uses high quality produce and explains each dish in detail. The food is innovative and fresh. We had the Chef’s... More

We have been visiting this wonderful establishment for over 10 years and it never disappoints. The quality of food is outstanding and the owner and chef is a very talented guy who is passionate about his creations. A little piece of heaven in an idyllic settling. Look forward to our next visit.

Can Roura is hidden away among the bright lights and terraces of the other Sant Marti restaurants. But, if you go to the trouble of booking ahead in the off season and eat in the evening (when outside is chilly anyway!) you will experience a really fantastic meal and service. The food is innovative, fresh and some of the best... More

We really wanted to go here, but made the mistake of not calling ahead. When we arrived there was one rather grumpy man in the kitchen who said that unless we'd booked he wasn't prepared to listen! He DID have 2 people booked in for dinner at 10! We sat opposite and had a great meal! We watched dozens of... More

Hello. I knew that something like this will happen some day. First of all, it's a season restaurant, open only in summer, with menu, workers etc. After this time some people call me and i cook for them, sometimes 2, 4 or 6 people, yes. They call me a day before and i buy food for 2, 4 or 6... More
