Very good food cooked in a Mediterranean style with originals details. The service is competent and they care about any detail. We loved the different areas of the place (kids area, chillout and live music). You can't give them a try..a.they deserve it!

Excellent food. We went for dinner and our surprise was the live music and the coktails afterwards in the chillout. I will repeat for sure.

We came across this place whilst driving out for dinner on our 1st night in the area, and it looked so inviting, and busy, that we gave it a go. It was a great choice. It was immediately obvious that the staff, and particularly the manager (owner?) were competent as well as friendly & engaging. The food was a definite... More

We used to come here when it was still Can Padres, we loved that place. But El Vaixel is a great resteurant, i had the Gazpacho as a starter, wich was great. The seabass as main course, absolutely delicious! Also the service is great!

We had noticed this interesting restaurant several ties and finally tried it on our last night of this stay in Sa Punta. The staff were very welcoming and attentive despite being very busy. The menu is amusingly laid out and is supplied with translations in 6 languages which must be some sort of record! The tapas and starters were amazing... More

Busy evening but still good service and nice treatment. Food was good all over, but never truly fantastic. All things considered, it's a recommendation but not top notch. Worth a visit for sure.

Excellent combination of good Quality food, Style and good Service. El Vaixell has many nice dishes and beautiful wines. This restaurant is a 'must visit' if you go to Platja de Pals. They will surprise you with their lovely menu.

A real suprise to find ourselves eating at El Vaixell not just once but three nights out of a 6 night stay. Having visited Pals for over 20 years, we have eaten at numerous restaurants in pals and surrounding villages and coves but had always avoided what used to be a run down self service restaurant. it has been transformed...

We ended up at the Vaixell on recommendation from some friends....and ended up going 3 times! Having had a terrible summer weather wise in Dublin, the lure of eating "outside" was considerable! On 2 occasions we eat with another couple and on no occasion, did anyone feel that their choice was anything but good. Whether it was the calamari to... More
