Excellent sea food

To celebrate I prize I decided to try this restaurant specialized in rices and sea products. We were 5 and we were excellently attended by the friendly staff. We decided to share three salads and each one choose a different main course. We tried cod, corvine, monkfish and haddock and everything... read more

I've walked past La Canasta a few times and when I checked out the prices on the menu, I was always hesitant because they were quite high. But one day I found a Groupon for 50% off dinner for two and thought, why not? The menu had quite a lot of variety, good quality, the service was also very good.... More

Excellent service, delicious food, and wonderful ambiance. It's like an old-fashioned Parisian restaurant tucked away in a small beach town outside of Barcelona. The rape with pimento verde (monkfish) and the cordero (roasted leg of lamb) was some of the best we've ever had. The appetizers were equally excellent. We highly recommend going here and don't think the prices were... More

Definitely overpriced , too pretentious... Also the attitude of the owner was that way and I'd say he was almost rude at some point when we told him we had a free dinner coupon for 2, as we were 4 but OF COURSE, two of us were going to pay their part but he didn't seem to like the idea...... More

Went to La Canasta to have a decent meal, but got very dissapointed. The food was more or less avarage, and the prices was like 5 times higher than retaurants in the same area. Will not go the again

Owner Miguel Yepes opened in 1976. Well-established in the area, has a large staff capable of dealing with its large amount of activity. The rooms of a marine style demonstrate the trend of its extensive menu Miguels son Christian works there and they have all the Spanish dishes one needs, fried green peepers all kinds of seafood including clams lobster...

Very personal level of service, lead by the owner Miguel Yepes. The restaurant is set out in a very marine theme, very comfortable, nice wines, and good quality food. Its a little bit pricey.....but the food is good. Judge for yourself.....at the very least you will enjoy seeing the owner in action....

While staying in Castelldefels for Mobile World Congress, my work team got reeled in by the billboard. I had my doubts from the beginning. Way overpriced for basic Spanish cuisine. I really don't understand what you're paying for at this restaurant--maybe the billboard? Lobster and avocado salad, for instance, was so skimpy and weakly prepared that I laughed at the... More
