Awesome location. Great food.

At the BEST spot in Callella, in of the most beautiful bays in Northern parts of Spain. El Tragamar. Too busy in High season. Great food. Great location. Lovely atmosphere just 3 mtr(!!) from the beach. A bit disappointed that the menu never changed in the last 10 years ! But still nice food with... read more

We stayed in Lafranc and ate a lot of good meals. Tragamar missed out on a top 3 slot. The location is fantastic (book to be outside) and the menu very interesting. Initial thoughts were that it was a bit faddy but turned out to be very good. The service was fine - not as good as some of the... More

Popped in a bite having just arrived in town. Location wonderful and view is very special. Lovely place overall. However, the detail lets this place down. Service was not great; 4 staff not very attentive for an extremely quite restaurant. We just wanted a quick bite and thought we would be safe with the hamburger, which arrived as a plate... More

This restaurant is in a great location and is perfect to stop off for a late evening coffee and liquor on the way home. It is expensive, so do not waste your money on having a very mediocre meal inside the restaurant where the air-conditioning doesn't work. There are many restaurants with far better food in Calella, so if you... More

This has one of the best locations in Calella. Right on the sea front with great views. You will need to book in high season as people pile in from 9pm. Better than average service but we had 2 out of 10 dishes that were poor. One rushed and not cooked. Steak was excellent and most of the fish too.Without... More

We have been there three times in 15 year. Last time with 3 families (including children). Even for teenagers the food is sufficiently adventurous while they can still pick something they really like. The service is very friendly and efficient. The owner (?) is sometimes a bit less communicative/polite, especially when you happen to sit down for a drink while... More

Fantastic place for a meal in a lovely setting. Outside tables have the view but cannot be booked so either arrive early, be prepared to wait or eat inside. The service can be a bit hit and miss but was polite and efficient this time and we recognized many of the staff from previous years , which I take as... More

I visited Tragamar the second week of July and had a fantastic lunch with my daughters and friends. After a day on the beach, it was very pleasant to sit under an umbrella and sip a glass of white wine watching the Mediterranean. We shared a few appetizers: the calamares a la andaluza are the best I’ve ever had; the... More

We had dinner at this adorable seaside restaurant. Relax atmosphere, great food and wine. Starters were shared amongst the group, and main dishes were plentiful; can also be shared. Desserts are great. Loved the place, the food, the wine. Service is average, but polite. After all, this is Spain in summer, by the beach. Expect a laid-back experience.

This restaurant is beautifully decorated inside and has wonderful beachfront seats on the patio. The service is good. The food was not as good as Fiego's and more expensive but all in all a relaxed evening in a wonderful setting
