Out of the ordinary tapas

We spotted this place crowded out on our first night in Begur and managed to make a booking for the next day. The tapas is quite different from most other local places, with a real twist of flair and ingenuity. Fast and friendly service and reasonably priced wines, but do book ahead

We have eaten here before and went back this October. Sadly, this time we were disappointed. We did not feel that the meal was either really tasty or worth the high price. There if far better value and better cooking in other restaurants in Begur than this place.

Our second year staying in Begur on the stunning Costa Brava and we finally got into Platillos! Small family restaurant serving the best tapas in town. We have been to most eating establishments in Begur now and this one gets top marks from all the family for quality, originalilty and atmosphere. Very few tables and a few seats up at... More

With great luck, we snagged the last table in this 8-table tiny place. What glorious food! We enjoyed small plates of roast suckling pig, tempura hake, macaroni in a delightful mushroom cream sauce, cod and couscous with chili sauce, crawfish en brochette, and ended with a special Polo Opera, a tiny ice-cream bar of coffee, and ganache, with a spoon...

Possibly the best food I have eaten in Begur. Very modern, beautifully presented and exquisite tastes. Platillos means little plates and these are like tapas but much more sophisticated and delicately flavoured than standard tapas. I have rarely tasted such subtle seasoning and such exceptional flavours. We had patatas bravas, foie gras and a poached egg in a morel mushroom... More

We had a great dinner here. We enjoyed a wide range of their dishes, from the queso con Gambas, Tuna tartare, truffle grilled cheese, Tuna taco, Apple tart, with a wonderful Sauvignon Blanc from Rueda. Some highlights were the tuna tartare with strawberries, jalapeños, hearts of Palm and flash fried seaweed garnish; the grilled cheese with oyster mushrooms, truffle and... More

This small restaurant is fantastic. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious. If you can get a reservation, it's well worth it. By far the best meal we had in Begur.

As a Begur resident I have been visiting Los Platillos regularly over the years and this past Friday evening was yet another excellent experience. I had no reservation but tried my luck just after 8.00 PM. The very welcoming lady guest supervisor immediately accommodated me at the bar - I felt lucky - all other places were fully booked. I...

Fantastic food and friendly service. The dishes are based on some iberian classics in many ways, but they are delivered in a unique way with a lot of confidence. Highly recommended for those who love great food!

This is a great little restaurant offering superb wine and great tapas. Whilst it is a little pricey relative to others, it's definitely worth a visit. The staff are friendly, the ambience relaxed and the food top quality. We ordered translucent lasagna, tuna carpaccio, roast meat croquettes, patatas bravas and mushroom truffle and cheese toast. Every dish was excellent even... More
