Cool beach restaurant

My favourite beach restaurant on the Costa Brava. Not the place to go if you are after fine dining but if you want a casual restaurant with fresh fish and seafood then this is the place to go. Service is friendly maybe not the quickest but who wants a quick lunch when in Spain...? The waiters bring... read more

Excellent meal in great beach side restaurant. There was lots of guesswork in dealing with the menu as our Spanish isn't strong but a mixture of English/French and pointing got us a meal and the wAitress worked hard to help us. Salads were great and we shared a Golden Bream between two. Once we got comfortable with the format it... More

Oh dear, such a potential, fresh fish, a wood fired oven and an incredible location on the beach. The fish are served with a jacket potato. The jacket potato was not cooked and the one we requested to replace it was still al dente. At 58 Euros a kilo, they really should serve it with a some sort of salad... More

We came from the Eetu hotel, no reservation. Found a parking in a paying lot. Went down to the beach, where we found this restaurant. "Did you make a reservation?" No, we did not. "Never mind, we'll put you a table there, with a parasol." Very warm people. A very friendly company, a group of french people next to our... More

We strolled down from our hotel to this perfect restaurant on the beach. The Spanish love their two hour lunches and we joined in the fun. We began with the mussels, which were perfectly prepared and some of the best we have ever had. The salad was excellent followed by the grilled shrimp that was delicious. We lingered over wine...

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the front desk person at the Parador. We ate "lunch" here during our day on the beach, our day away from sight seeing. We got to the beach mid-morning and made a reservation for 1:00. We were seated at the rail overlooking the beach. Great table. The food was outstanding! Service... More

try to visit this seaside restaurant in one of the prettiest coves of the Costa brava each time we are over from England. The food is good and if you are after a light lunch the salads are really interesting.

Our hotel Mas de Torrent recommended this beachfront seafood spot when we asked for a perfect seaside lunch recommendation during our tour of Costa Brava. We were running late but they held table #1 which is the best table right on the beach with some privacy. It gets a lot of sun so be prepared for that unless you choose... More
