lovely setting and great food

There are perhaps half a dozen restaurants located beside one another in the main square of St Marti and L'Esculapi is the one we tend to favour most.

We just went for a tapas selection for lunch and were not disappointed. Very attentive service and not rushed despite being a busy time. We will definitely go back to try a "proper" lunch. Beautiful old village and what a view across the bay just 50m away.

We ate here when off-season, it was a little chilly outside but the owners lit their huge gas burners so we could all eat on their canvas covered terrace! Food was excellent and they served an amuse-bouche and plenty of fresh bread and drinks before the food arrived. When we received the final bill, it was very reasonable, will definitely... More

We went there twice during this summer. The first time we were there, we had no reservations, and sat upstairs as we looked longingly at the people sitting at the terrace and thought how nice it would have been to have a table there. There was no view where we sit, I had the sun in my eyes from the... More

The kids had excellent pizzas, which were huge so our 8 and 10 year old could of shared. We also had very good calamari, langoustine and roasted vegetable salad and pasta salad. The portion here are very generous so although these dishes sounded like starters they were plenty for a filling lunch. Great location, but get there early and get... More

beware of booking a table at 7pm (the only time available) at peak season. I'd go later. They rush you through as fast a possible to get the table free for the next arrivals so they can make even more money. If you are in a hurry its OK but not if you want a leisurely meal. Whatever meal was... More

good pizzas, they have also a nice terrace and serve typical catalan tapas. Service is fairly good. Nothing special but a good option for a casual lunch in sant Marti d'Empuries.

One to bear in mind when others are closed on a Monday but otherwise not one to bust a gut visting (albeit incredibly attentive staff and inexpensive)- huge menu but nothing particularly exciting/innovative
