Good value for money

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 !

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

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

There are two C'an Padres restaurants near Pals and we've been to them both many times. Both have both inside and outside tables and plenty of car parking. C'an Padres 1 offers chicken only with salad or fries but the chicken is fresh off the spit and always delicious. There are usually queues both for tables and for the chickens... More
