Very good seafood tapas

The Vaixell of Pals is a very good option if you are looking for a typical Mediterranean paella. Varied selection of tapas although its most impressive features are its seafood tapas with a varied, fresh and top quality choice of options. Excellent attention.

My wife and I decided to go here for a drink on Thursday evening this week. We were staying literally 150 yards away and heard the live music. Easy to find off the main roundabout in Pals and commercial centre. Plenty of seating outside. Good atmosphere. However, you are asked to order at the bar area. I literally waited 18... More

We were there having lunch last Sunday. They've got a nice terrace where you may eat or have a drink (noon, evening, night). We ate some mussels (specially good) and paella. In summary good balance quality price.

We've been there as a family for the last three years, since it changed from its previous form. I cannot knock the food, its lovely. The thing is everytime we go there we order the food and generally my wife and I have a starter and the boys don't but all the time we get our starters and hey presto!... More

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.
