Fine dining, stunning location

Simpson is sensational. Long established in beautiful Llafranc I've eaten there 3 times in 2014 and without doubt, it has served the best food I've ever tasted, including Gordon Ramsay at Royal Hospital Road, which I thought could not be topped.

Beautifully located, friendly team including the owner, incredibly good starters, mainly salads and solid and tasteful main courses. Desserts again delicious and very original. If there is a place to recommend in Llafranc, this is the one.

I don't recommend this restaurant, i ordered fish of the day, and they gave me a half of fish with some chips, at the end, the price for this portion was 30 euros, it is the biggest price in the town and smallest portion and also they didn't gave lemon for fish, worst restaurant i ever seen

I booked a table for 6 a week ago with sea view, when I arrived the owner said somebody cancelled it. Who? He even know his name!? (he gave it to somebody else!)Ashamed, he offer me a table inside of the dark. Of course I refused and I will never visit it again. Not serious neither respect compromises.

We, a family with two children 8 and 12, decided to have a lunch in Llafranc. What a lovely place! The views straight to the sea not to mention the great food. My husband had as a starter tuna takaki which I am definitely going to order next time. I had no starter but tuna hamburger with guacamole which was... More

The Gazpacho was very poor, this should be a local specialty in Catalunya, but i've had better in The Netherlands.... The Sardines were also dissappointing, and served with crisps. My friends and family were very positive about the food. Maybe just don't take the Gazpacho and Sardines. The Tarte Tatin was very good.

Welcoming, unfussy and of the region. Smart food presented smartly. Reasonably priced for the fairly upmarket resort of Llafranc and set to challenge the local m-star restaurant for food and value if not for the full experience

We are regular visitors of Llafranc and lunch once a year with friends at Simpson. This year we have experienced the greatest desillusion you can imagine. We forgot a valuable autoped of our youngest son in the restaurant and returned two hours later to pick it up. We were threated by the headwaiter as idiots. They had found nothing, the... More
