Simply amazing

We ate here at least twice during our last 3 days of holiday, having only found it towards the end. We're already dreaming of going back. Delicious food, heavenly service, delightful waiters/waitresses. Couldn't be better.

Can Roura is closed to walk-in business through the autumn and winter, but it is possible to book private dining, as we did for a family celebration. The owner did everything for us, chef, waiter, wine waiter, and enjoyed himself as much as we did. The Chef's Table was a degustation menu, each dish innovative and almost unique. I can... More

So sad this place has to close down for the winter it really is a fabulous place. The service is warm and very friendly and food excellent. Value for money it is hard to beat with the menu of the day only €16.50. which included wine, bread , olives and water. By far the best in St Marti.

Good service, menu and advice. They take all the time for you. No rush to make room for the next guests. Quality food. Serveral good restaurants around the court, but try this one for sure.

Have always wanted to eat in this restaurant - knowing how busy it gets in the Summer, booked a table for 6 in the outside courtyard 3 days in advance. Obvious from the reaction when we arrived just before 9 p.m. that there was a problem; there was no table for us as it had been allocated to another party.... More

We decided to check out reviews and picked this place for a meal. We have two dogs but they gave us a table outside which was nice as you can sit and people watch. Enzo our waiter was lovely and very knowledgeable, he picked a local red wine which was perfect and we couldn't fault the food. Visit yourself you... More

It was our fault, we are sorry about that. The problem was that we started to do the main courses too early, and once they was over the table and hot, they was served (i as a chef i'm always hurrying dishes to go out before they get cold). In Spain people don't like to wait more that 10 minuts... More
