Original menu, amazing food, great dining experience. Very welcoming staff, even specially-prepared an off-menu tuna tataki for our son. Affordable lunch menus at 15-20 euros are also quite the find in L'Escala.

We have now eaten in La Gruta several times and it just gets better. Friendly, efficient service, Catalan food with a French influence, always meets expectation. The lunch menu of the day, Monday to Friday changes daily and you are always given a great choice. Three courses including wine bread and water for 15 Euros. It is well worth travelling... More

Although we ate at lunch time we found the menu to be extensive & of the highest quality, better than all the other restaurants " A la carte " menu's. The restaurant has a great ambiance & very friendly service, we discovered that the chef/owner is French & you can... More

Had lunch with my wife and son here. Delicious food, tasty. Pleasant service and child friendly. Great place to go when in l'Escala, just outside of the usual tourist traps. Good value for money. Will definitely go again.

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
