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

We've been going to Sant Marti & Can Roura for a number of years and can honestly say that Joan and his team have never disappointed us in producing a delicious meal every time! Don't get me wrong - the other restaurants in Sant Marti are very good but Can Roura is in a league of its own and at... More

We have only just discovered Can Rourer despite having travelled to the area for some years. We recently booked a table and we were so delighted with what we experienced that we went twice more. The owner Juan is also the Chef and is clearly passionate about what he does. His Restaurant has a lovely cosy and friendly atmosphere and... More

Located in the square in Sant Marti D'Empuries near L'Escala, opens at 20:00. Try to get a table in the inner courtyard/patio, lovely lighting and stars! Varied menu, very tasty food, good portions, excellent service and at a reasonable price (except for the water!) We thoroughly enjoyed the lamb entree but unfortunately didn't have room for the desserts. Worth a... More

We've been travelling to L'escala for some 15 years now and have walked past this restaurant on many occasions. This year thanks to the many positive comments on tripadvisor we thought we'd try it and we were not disappointed . The food and service was excellent. The chef and owner Juan really cares about the food he prepares and we... More

We had the menu of the day, 3 courses for €16. Wine and water was also included.Between the four of us we tried all the starters and main courses. Every dish was great. Desserts were very tasty too. This is a really gem with lovely staff and is much better than the touristy places that surrounds it. Will certainly visit... More

We wondered if we had made the right choice by walking past the extremely busy Pizza joints in the lovely square and headed towards the quiet restaurant. Now the other places may well be good but this was a real pleasure. The food was local, fresh, interesting and great value. The waiter provided some good guidance about what to try.... More
