Dutch restaurants in Spanish coastal resorts are mostly not the best combinations. We've found the exception to the rule. Friends in platja d'aro !. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and good food.

Very nice setting, service a little erratic. The restaurant is Dutch owned so the food is different, some of the menu is Thai based, which is rather a pleasant change from some of the standard menus in town. The house wine is awful! Stick to a gin & tonic! We've been here a few times, the setting, decor & atmosphere... More

Food was tasty from tapas to dessert, I recommend it all! The service is so so. Very typical of Spain, never the same person helping and none of the waiters or waitresses were very attentive or friendly. Unfortunately this is typical of Spain restaurants. Don't let this keep you from the great food and atmosphere, you can sit outside with... More

I have visited this place more than once and it is a good place to sit or lounge and have your drinks. The food has not improved during the times I was there, sometimes fatty, sometimes a less-than-good-satesauce and sometimes the service was not really cordial. If you don't care about it and you just want to lounge there so... More

You can find this place on the beach promenade. They are open all day, but I would recommend to go there late evening, because the atmosphere feels very different then. Try goat cheese creme brûlée- fascinating dish! Nice mini hamburgers. Accomplish with "cupa de cava", and your evening is nicely set up;)

What an amazing experience a value for money, lovely meal and the bonus being you are helping former street kids rebuild their lives with a career in hospitality. The staff were beautiful, loved the friends store next door, what a great way to spend your tourist dollar

This restaurant is In the middle of the boulevard of Plata d'Aro. It is a clear beacon at this beach with its purple accents and Thai wood sculptures. This restaurant has a good terrace and the atmosphere is good so it is picture perfect. The food and the drinks are not the best ever. Well, are you looking for that... More
