I've eaten here many times and it is always and extraordinary experience. The food is beautifully prepared, presented and served. Friendly, comfortable yet always a lovely surprise. If you are ever in the area, do not miss La Gruta. Reservations are a good idea

We have been in many Michelin awarded restaurants, but it has been a very long time since we were so surprised by such a high standard from this restaurant which deserves a star. The quality of the ingredients, the inspiration used by preparation of the dishes were one of the very best we ever had. Then the price/quality; loads of... More

Super meals in la Gruta ! Always top, best value for money in good atmosphere. The 3 course meals during weekdays for 15 euro including a bottle of wine are the best in the area.

Lovely restaurant with excellent food and ambience. Always busy, and with two sittings to accommodate the clients. Has to be one of the best restaurants in the area and we have lived here for more than 10 years.

Having read various reviews of the restaurants in and around L'Escala, our party decided to try La Gruta. We turned up on Monday evening without a reservation and were made very welcome, although it was apparent that the restaurant was nearly full. The waiter advised that the a la carte menu was unavailable, only table d'hote. This did not put... More

This has got to be the best restaurant in L'Escala. We have only ever been in the evening and would describe it as a restaurant you go to for a special occasion or when you fancy dressing up a bit more for dinner (not essential but it just feels like somewhere you can do it). The meals are beautifully plated... More

Ate here on a Friday evening in late August. Restaurant is in the centre of the old town - quite small with a bustling atmosphere inside. Booking essential as it has now become very popular! A family meal with plenty of variety in what we ate - my tagliatelle was both large and delicious, followed by a huge pork chop.... More

Once again we were given a warm welcome by the staff who clearly recognised us. I visited the restaurant with family and we were shown a nice table. The food quality was excellent with new dishes on the bistronic evening menu .I had fish and my family the steak both were perfect. Service was attentive and we were really pleased... More
