Great restaurant!

Had a great time here. The food is really special and unique, very enjoyable. Every dish is different and combines fresh and high quality products.

It was, by far, the best restaurant we visited on the Costa Brava. Turnandot is so popular that 10 pm was the earliest reservation we could get and it was almost 1045 before we sat down. The wait was worth it: tender octopus followed by pork dishes and reconstructed tiramasu all at a sensible price Front of house staff were... More

Really friendly staff and a varied an interesting menu. Represents great value for money in my opinion with super choices to choose from. The wine list is well stocked and the choice is ideal. Can't recommend highly enough. A must visit.

We had a wonderful meal here, where nothing can be criticised. At the time we visited, the restaurant offers a three course dinner for twenty five euros, and we would have each happily paid the same for each course elsewhere. Each course was interesting and carefully put together, a really enjoyable experience. The hostess was delightful and friendly, with excellent... More

Even though Begur has many wonderful restaurants, Restaurant Turandot is by far the best. Staff are really friendly with good English,restaurant is bright & inviting but the food is the standout feature. My wife had the scallops, then turbot (which was cooked to perfection); my beef fillet was faultless. Desserts were spectacular too. We never left a restaurant fuller!! Fully... More

More encores for Turandot! We discovered this gem of a restaurant last year on the Costa Brava and so enjoyed our delicious meals there that we made reservations months ahead as soon as we knew we'd return to Begur. The place is perfect -- delicious food, comfortable, pretty and open room, delightful owners and extremely reasonably priced. We cannot wait... More

We had dinner for 25 euro per person plus some added prices on some of the 3 course menu. The octopus starter was delicious and also the cod was well cooked. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. All in all, a very good experience and would definitely return. Important to reserve a table as it is a... More

Have walked past this restaurant in many occasion but this time went in and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and a different menu from the normal local cuisine. Staff were attentive but not pushy. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will definitely go back. Well worth a visit .

My husband chose well, unfortunately I did not. We shared bread with tomato, it was fresh and tasty. He ordered scallops, nice. I ordered salad. It looked boring and lacked a decent dressing. I was handed bottles of oil and Jerez vinegar - lazy on the chef's part and the whole dish lacked seasoning. I consoled myself with the low... More

Lovely relaxed restaurant, excellent food and very informed and friendly staff. The octopus dish was very delicious. Within walking distance to the old town with convenient parking close by.
