Visited whilst on holiday with my partner, the beautiful and welcoming authentic terrace with a beach view is what attracted us. Food was fantastic, steak for my partner and a gambas and prawn salad for myself, the creme brûlée was amazing and arrives on fire in a jar with awesome presentation! The lady who owns/runs this restaurant is just brilliant... More

The food served is of high quality (meat- as well the fish dishes served) and service is always with a smile. The view is wonderful and breath taking. I advise everyone to go there... More

Good ambience, good decoration, nice & friendly staff, live shows and nice views to the sea . It's a "must" place even if the food its not that "amazing".

A wide choice of all kinds of small dishes. Lounging and eating with a view... THAT is celebrating your holidays. They have never disappointed me. I have been here for a few years in a row.

I researched restaurants for weeks but 'Friends' didn't really grab my attention, but when we arrived and walked down the beach front we strolled past the restaurant and the vibe and energy coming from the place was awesome, so we sat down, this place has got it so right, from the seating to the view to the staff to the...

Great atmosphere right on the boardwalk Manager came over and helped make sure that my wife's vegan diet was appreciated and got creative with a pasta dish which she loved. It isn't easy being a vegan in Spain and she said this was her favorite meal.

Friendly and prompt staff, lovely view of the beach, cool purple and white interior design, good food with interesting menu, and probably best free wifi in town. Our all-time-favorite hang out in Platja d'Aro.
