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

Since gaining the Michelin star the food has gone steadily downhill. The raw skate salad was awful and 16.50 euros for what could only amount to a couple of teaspoons of crab was excessive. We have eaten at many 1 and 2 star restaurants and sadly this doesn't compare - perhaps the star is for the setting and view!

My girlfriend and I have been lucky enough to eat at Michelin star restaurants all over Europe. I don't know how Restaurant Casamar received one. Perhaps it was the modern infatuation with dry ice. It could have been the sea foam with soup, but it certainly wasn't the deep fried in an 'oven' fish. We opted for the smaller, local... More
