My wife, my 86 year mother and I visited La Llagosta Restaurant on 3 June for an evening meal. We all started with a large plate amongst us of cockles cooked in a tomato sauce. The women then shared a cauldron of suquet (Catalan fish stew, based on monkfish), and I had "arroz negro", or black rice. This had various... More

We ate here day one in llafranc and food was generally good, service a bit gruff but acceptable but at least the wine was very good. However, came back day two, only to be shouted at twice by the waiter (red haired young male) because we had the temerity to sit down at one of the many free tables. We... More

We visited this restaurant and two occasions because we enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. the food is catalan with great fish and seafood selection. After a long day of walking the coastal path it was great to relax here. The service was very friendly and efficient, even when very busy. The location is overlooking the bay, remember to book...

Had lunch here first day we ,arrived. The restaurant was busy with apparently many locals. Unfortunately we must have had our invisible cloaks on, with many having their orders taken arriving much later than us. The food wasn't too memorable either. We didn't go back. I agree with the previous poster as regards the rice dishes, they are mostly overpriced... More

Perhaps we ordered badly as this restaurant seems one of the busiest on the front. However the fare was deeply disappointing. The children had been looking forward to their first 'paella' and what came was a rather tired example with a considerable lack of seafood. The staff also appeared to been focused on having us out to allow the later... More

This appears to be the most expensive restaurant along the seafront and we thought that this might mean we'd have an above average experience. We went for an early dinner at about 8pm. No tables were taken but a big play was made of all the tables at the front being reserved. We were put at the back, on a... More

Fantastic food in a perfect location. Despite being very busy, the staff found us a table, and were very accommodating all evening. Fresh fish was served, was excellent. The bay at llafranc is special, and although the area is often labelled 'upmarket, or 'overpriced' Llagosta was great value, and I would recommend to anyone in the area.

The shock was not so much the food, but the attitude when we complained. We've been coming here of many, many years on a yearly basis. The food has always been good, sometimes very good. I ordered a very good, if expensive, gazpacho with gazpacho ice cream starter. My partner ordered an avocado and salmon 'timbale'. The avocado was mixed... More

This restaurant was the best we visited in terms of quality. The steaks were great and you feel some effort has gone into providing your meal. The service was not bad at all - there is a feel of proper management too with a female directing the staff and this made a big difference. The starter of cannelloni is a... More
