Pealla is a bit salty but everything else is good. Good portion, good value. The staff are friendly too.

Efficient service and nice outdoor seating area, with a great buzz around the square in Llafranc. I would rate the food as OK, but nothing particularly special. I would not personally recommend for a special occasion.

On recommendation tried this out one evening. Ordered tapas which arrived quickly but all warm only. It was all quite inedible. calamari was like rubber bands soggy and cold. Croquettes tasted synthetic. Potatas braves was smothered in cheap sauces and vile. This was the worst food we've ever ordered in Llafranch and it cost us a bomb too. AVOID.

The staff here were very helpful and advised us on several meal alternatives. The goats cheese salad was huge, so much so we could share the starter and still leave some on the plate. The pizzas were tasty and hot. worth a visit as everything is prepared fresh while you wait and for this part of Spain low cost.

Worth the find just to sample the excellent sardines, calamarie and in my opinion the best coffee around plus Rosa and her friendly staff make it a relaxing experience in this pleasant setting. This is the third time over the last five years we have had a series of lunches here all with good inexpensive local wines.

El Toc for lunch provides good food, value for money and efficient service. This can not be said about many restaurants in Llafranc. We were fortunate to be able to sit on the outside of the gazebo on a lovely Sunday afternoon. Service was very friendly and efficient and the place itself was clean and tidy. The set tapas-based lunch... More

We had a delicious lunch, lots of tapas, friendly efficient service and good value. We certainly didn't find anything about it scruffy or dirty. It was pristine and we certainly had no complaints
