We ate here twice during a four night stay in Llafranc the second time being our 29th wedding anniversary and it was thoroughly lovely .Lovely ambience for a romantic evening with lovely food and wine. Tables are a little large for two people if you sit opposite each other so I would recommend a square table where you can sit... More

What an oasis. Beautiful garden and just slightly away from all the beachside crowds. We ate here twice and the food was fabulous. Service was excellent. The maître d' was so helpful with explaining the dishes and my step-daughter said it was one of the best meals she'd ever had. The cuisine is high end and high quality with an... More

cares about preparing the food, and has a beautiful garden. Reasonable pricing - ask for the fish of the day! Dessert list has difficulty competing with a brisk walk to Calella and an ice cream by the seaside.

Food and service were superb and the restaurant atmosphere is charming. However, it is a very tourist spot, almost everyone at the restaurant that night was a British or European tourist but I won't complain because the waiter gave rave recommendations and you MUST try the duck with the balsamic glaze.

We arrived here without booking ahead and just managed to get a table on a lovely terrace. The food was very good and the staff excellent.

What a shame as tried this on last night and we should have gone earlier. Delightful host who couldnt get us a table outside as fully booked but inside with doors open was just as good. As mentioned before the Pea and Crayfish soup was just delightful. Forget the Michelin star eateries-try here. Mumma's the cook too!

Ate here twice during our stay in Llafranc. Attentive service, and inventive food in a beautiful courtyard. The starter of pea Soup with crayfish is superb. Fish generally very good. Most Europeans book for 8 to 8.30, before the Spanish people flock in from 10 onwards!
