We like to have an early lunch (1 pm) which is great because the restaurant is still empty and the service focuses on you. Good food, nothing amazing, but good.

The food in El Tragamar is wonderful. We ate here many times and it's hands down our favourite in Calella. On Saturdays and Sundays it's better to book a time as they can get busy. The wine is well priced, it's a little higher than some but you have a superb view. We decided that they have the best patatas... More

The restaurant location, in a perfect beachfront in Costa Brava works to ensure it is always fully booked. But, as was my case, I guess it is always first time (and last) clients. The menu is short, but with 5 different types of hamburguers, instead of increasing the variety with other options. The carpaccio with parmiggiano was having the same... More

we called in the restaurant early and were lucky to have a great seat and a fantastic view.The staff were helpful and the order came quickly.However the food was disappointing and as it turned out one of the more expensive meals.I would recommend this restaurant for a snack and a drink.

We thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely mid week lunch at El Tragamar. The setting is simply stunning, unspoilt and unpretentious. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. We opted for the special day menu: a fresh fish and the local black rice with squid dish - both were delicious. Would recommend this place to all.

It is important to book ahead as this is a very popular place particularly at weekends which the barcalonians come out of the city. If you can sit outside facing the sea do so, it is lovely. The service is good bearing in mind how busy it is and friendly. The food is good international Spanish and the wine from... More

Only mid April but the sun was blazing, and we were lucky enough to bag a free table outside with fabulous views over the lovely cove of Calella. A glance at the menu told us this was proper restaurant (with prices to match) rather than a beach bar, but we we happy to pay for the combination of good food,... More

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 local dishes and products. A... 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
