Quite good

Worth a visit I found the food pretty good the place itself is okay, like any review make your own mind up, although the reviews for here seem fairly critical it is worth a visit regardless.

We were quite surprised to be brought to this fine establishment with some local firends. The service was impeccable. The host was very polished. The food was classic Catalan with a very fine presentation. We had great carn d'olla, seafood and wonderful desserts. The restaurant has a nautical theme, and is very comfortable. I would go back for a very... More

Had dinner last night 3 people. We were the only table. We all opted for the 49 euro seasonal tasting menu. The food was awful. Mostly frozen, badly executed,(menu sounded great). I expected to wake today with food poising, luckily I didn't! For a restaurant in the Michelin guide this is a must avoid! Next to a strip club and... More

This is probably the best restaurant in the Blanes and Lloret area, but it is also a pricey one for a special occasion. However you can eat there more cheaply. I've eaten here many times over the years and I always go during the week for a lunchtime "menu del dia" which has always been mouthwatering and a bargain at... More

This is a very nice restaurant for lunch or dinner, they serve mainly fish and seafood but also meat. They have a weekly changing extra menu with seasonal dishes. They serve a great paella and have impressive winelist.

OK, so I have read a few of the reviews say it's next to a 'showgirl' club and near to a main road... But you soon forget that once inside. Excellent food, great place and very friendly staff. What more so you want from a restaurant?!!

Great food, great service and good value for money. We stayed at the Santa Marta which is around the corner so decided to give it a try and gald we did. Its a cab ride but worth the extra. Only downside is its close to a mian road which does give a little background traffic noise but dont let this... More
