Excellent food and surroundings, perfect to take business visits, but very expensive

If you do not have to worry about the price, then go to La Canasta. It has very good pica pica, and seafood in delightful surroundings. The only thing that I do not like it that it is really overpriced, as you can get the same or better quality for much less, but in La Canasta you pay for the... read more

I was in this restaurant a few weeks ago and is one of the best restaurant in Castelldefels. For me it's like the 7 puertas of that village (7 puertas is a great well known restaurant in Barcelona). Good to go with your family and have a nice catalan lunch

Unfortunately a false step at the Canasta in Casteldeffels, Barcelona, Spain. Food was average down, service cold to unfriendly and the prices were too expensive. Not a good place to recommend at all. Only positive point is that is 1 block from the beach.

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

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 was excellent. Additionally they have a large but a... 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
