Fantastic Molecular Cuisine

Restaurant Hotel Casamar was our first realization that creative, delicious molecular gastronomy could be found in the most unlikely places in Catalonia.

One of the best lunches I have ever had. The food was delicious and the sommelier was amazing. Allow 2+ hours and you won't regret it. A short walk up the hill from the beach in Llafranc

We came to Casamar on a total whim as a day trip from Barcelona and ended up staying four days. Our first night, as guests of the hotel, we were offered a 23euro three course menu. We opted for one three course and one ala carte item and it was the perfect pairing for two people. We were given a... More

No matter how fancy the presentation, if it taste doesn't deliver, it's nothing. And this restaurant did not deliver. Period. Full stop.

We've been to this restaurant several times, both before and after they were given a Michelin star. I sincerely recommend the tasting menu, since it is complete and balanced. The quality is high, the wine list fairly complete and the service and savoir faire of the owners makes this one an easy recommendation. The restaurant is also placed on a... More

After multiple attempt to get a reservation, we succeeded this time. Next to the view, we had dinner outside, and the very friendly staff we had a great evening. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes but we choose the one of their menus. Wow , I wish I could cook this way. Everything they offered was special, from... More

We ate here, whilst staying in the Hotel. The food was dreadful. My cousin's tiny crab starter had almost as much shell as crab, my beef main course was a very small amount of beef shavings served cold with a bland sauce that bore no resemblance to its description on the menu. The service was just nowhere near the standard... More

Expect a warm welcome, professional service and creative dining. Finally look forward to a stunning view over the beautiful little fishing village of Llafranc. We ordered a 70 euro tasting menu with about 8-9 small courses. We liked most of the courses but found a few were, for us, overly creative. For example they brought us a sour cherry soup... More

Like some of the other reviews we have also eaten in some of the best Michelin starred restaurants and were very disappointed with the food and service here. Location is superb and we had the best table in the house overlooking the bay. This was nice but unfortunately it didn't make up for the lack of imagination in the end... More
