It's an easy, family place.

Let me tell you... If you travel with family, and we travel with four it's not easy to find kids friendly restaurants in the "Spanish Riviera" or also called Costa Brava. By chance going between little towns, Ullastret, Pals, Begur, we came across this handy, good, and affordable BBQ restaurant... read more

Although it has a truck stop feel to it the food is of a high quality and the chicken and chips is like no chicken I have ever tasted. We are here three times during our stay we loved it so much.

Spotlessly clean ! We have eaten here many times during the last 25 years or so and have at no point been disappointed. They simply do the best chicken around at a very reasonable price. Since our last visit we talked about the quality of their green salad. Simply outstanding. How do they do it ? So this time we... More

Our family have loved visiting the original Can Padres nearer Pals village for coming up for fifty years. We were very pleased when the new restaurant opened in the 1990s. Not the prettiest of buildings, very clean though and very noisy inside, but that adds to the atmosphere. Staff always friendly and efficient. Although you could never beat the chicken... More

You must try the chicken which is very crispy and fries home made, excellent for lunch or dinner with a pot of Sangria. Good value for money but it is very busy so noisy.. Try also the aioli which is very (very!) tasty !

Went with the family. Our main courses came in less than 5 minutes which alarmed us all. We all ordered chicken after reading the reviews. It is definitely fried the chicken, and was very much more like a less battered KFC than a rotisserie Chicken which is not what I was expecting. Flavour yes and masses of chips if you... More

This is my first review but I felt I needed to write this place up for anyone interested in a reasonably priced restaurant that specialized in grilled chicken and pork. I was with my wife and two children and drove by the location near Pals several times but only decided to stop the last few days we had left on... More

Wow: the chicken... The quality of the chicken, the taste, the tenderness. Everything is wonderful. The place is ugly: plastic chairs and tables, but the food. WOW! The fries are delicous too. You can see the chicken being roasted and sometimes they'll even let you pick one. If you are finished, you can bring home the unused ketchup and mayonaise.... More

I visited this restaurant on Wednesday, 11th September. Why is that date significant? Because the next day it closes for the winter and doesn't re-open until the next June. What a pity. This is a great place for having a rotisserie and chips - chicken, rabbit, lamb and pork. It doesn't really do much else, but that's what the 200-or... More
