Friendly with very poor food

If you know and like food this is not the place for you. The pasta was very bland indeed, the lobster was fishy, the razor clams were overcooked and the veal carpaccio was straight out of a packet and covered in an excess of parmesan. The ham and broken eggs was drastically over priced, in fact... read more

Bahia is well liked by the locals great service and great food. Serves kids meals and is in the old square by the harbour. Fish is lovely and a great paella .

The Badia used to be a great place to feed the family on lovely food for a reasonable price. It's now simply awful. I thought I just had a bad time but looking at other reviews it would seem that there is a trend going on here. What a shame.

We had diner here with friends. For drink i ordered some water with lemon. When i finished my glass, there was something sharp in my mouth. I pulled it out and found out it was a piece of glass. I warned the waiter and gave the piece. He took it with him. That's all they did. They didn't even apologize.... More

We visited this restaurant last year, had pizza and it was ok, I remember the owner being disinterested in his customers at the time, but eh oh, England was playing in the world cup and times were stressful. This year my wife and I revisited and ordered cannelloni and spaghetti bolognese, these are what I call 'safe' dishes, not Marathon... More

One of four open air restaurants in a little square near the port end of Llafranc. The only reason we chose this one was because it had more people in it - prices and menus were very similar but I prefer to eat where the people are. Being a scorching day two of us settled for the LLafranc salad (seafood)... More

The location is nice in the main square are. The service was okay, it was fast and the wine was well recommended. Their was more than enough variety with the Tapas which tasted good. My only gripe, was that when ordering the desert, a piece of apple tart, I asked what toppings I could have and they said it comes... More

We had lunch there on a very hot and busy day. Staff were running around like lunatics but were very cheerful and helpful. We sat outside under excellent shades and eat some very good food (their salads are enormous) and drank some of the best coffee that we had in Llafranc. Very clean tables and cutlery, great value and I... More
