If you love seafood and this is the place to visit. We have been going first as a couple and now as a family for 20 odd years. The fixed price menu includes wine water and bread (usually warm from the oven) so there are no hidden extras and at 22e (20 at lunch) it is fantastic value. The menu... More

La Gaviota is in Estartit and not Torroella de Montgri. Down on the sea front with excellent views of the ocean this has got to be the best restaurant in town. Luis with his family and superb chef produce a totally amazing dining experience. The menu del Dia at 23€ is a gastronomic delight. The constant standard of this restaurant... More

Acting on recommendations on Tripadvisor we decided to give this restaurant a try for my husbands birthday dinner. We were all completely blown away by the excellent food and the warm and friendly service. We loved it so much in fact, that we went back twice more before we left Estartit - each meal as good as the last, if... More

My family and I have been here at least 20 times over 4 years and it's our favourite restaurant near our vacation setting of pals. We always go at lunchtime and have the set menu, just over 20 euros for 3 courses and it's exceptional value for money. The food is fresh, the seafood fantastic and service great. It's mainly...

We are regular visitors to L'Estartit and without a shadow of a doubt, La Gaviota is a favourite part of our holiday. The food is always amazing and the menu is changed on a daily basis, according to what is available and fresh. They do a daily set menu, for both lunch and dinner and this offers great value. The...

We first went to this restaurant for Xmas dinner 3 years ago. we were absolutely amazed at the price, 30E. For this we got a tapas, starter, main, desert, petite fois, bottle of wine, water and a glass of champagne. The food is Spanish fine dining. where in England would you get Christmas dinner for 2 for less than £60?... More

The Gaviota restaurant has never disappointed. It is a very friendly restaurant run by its host, Lluis, who has a wealth of experience in running restaurants in this part of Catalunya. The daily menu is well worth trying, with local produce and wines being used. There is a great choice of food available, which should suit even the most discerning... More
