Locally sourced and freshly cooked doesn't come more local or fresher than the seafood served here nor could the food be less pretentious or fashion conscious than in this beautifully situated and simple restaurant overlooking the sea at the top of the town. Throw in warm unassuming service and totally welcoming and relaxed staff and I for one couldn't or... More

What more could you ask, the most beautiful view out to sea and the setting sun! Lovely selection of local fish meals or tapas, all washed down with some excellent local Emporda wines

We had visited La Punxa previously and so headed for there again. We were there in October and the outdoor space was enclosed. We sat indoors looking out to the Pyrenees. We ate the omelette sandwich and a ham and cheese sandwich. Both were delicious. Internet is available and we were not rushed, so you can spend time over a... More

Very disappointed with our dinner at La Punta. We had ordered several tapas and were told when ordering the "sepia" and "calamares" that they had run out. Instead we were offered the fish of the day, a "Gallo", which in Spain is a common fish. When receiving the bill we were charged 120 euros for two "Gallos". After asking the... More

My family and I have just returned from an excelent week in L'escala. One of the first bars/restaurants we happened to walk into became our favourite for the holiday..... la Punxa! The menu is varied and has a slightly larger selection compared to others (very good sea food tapas). The food is fresh and delicious, the staff are fantastic, always... More

Don't be fooled by the looks. La Punta servers the best sea food in L'Escala. All dishes are 100% Spanish, fresh and delicious.

of all the small bars and restaurants gathered around the most popular of the tiny town beaches in L'Escala, La Punxa stands out as being the best of the lot. With its dark wicker chairs, pleasant servers, attentive owner and interesting building it somehow manages to be less "touristy". The menu is wider than its competitors and the food well... More
