Nice food, good value

Good choice of restaurant, ate here a few times. Good service, good variety of dishes (relatively), and not too expensive. Centrally located on a square with multiple restaurants. Open till late.

What a contrast, ate at Casamar one night and came down to earth here the next night. Probably should have known better, a picture menu is not a good sign in my experience. Food was nothing special but service was attentive, not good value for money, especially with so many options available. Casamar was twice the price but a different... More

We stopped here one afternoon for a quick bite to eat. My partner was limited to a choice of one dish -- patatas bravas -- on account of his vegetarianism (a not uncommon situation in Spain, we found), so he plumped for potatoes whilst I chose the sonsos. Said sonsos were relatively unremarkable, but the patatas bravas were an altogether... More

Good food, nice service and we were happy they opened the shutter because in May it can be chilly. Fresh ingredients, good wine and nice people on the terrace.

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.

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

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.
