A cosy location in the hart of the old village. The carefully set tables looked inviting. The menu seemed promissing and it was! Fresh fish, prepared like it should. An extensive wine list at reasonable prices. The service was perky but professional even with a touch of humor. Every dish was great, but for me the dessert was most surprising!

We have been to this restaurant a few times five years ago and liked it very much then. We liked tuna steak most. When we came not long ago, we undersood that this place became even better. The service is wonderful. Waiters speak English. The tuna was wonderful, but I wish it was bigger. The deserts are also very good.... More

After visiting "la menta" tonight for the first time i had to write a review. Great food, friendly staff together with great overall ambience makes it a great night out. A must visit when you get the chance.

We came to this restaurant second time this summer, a month after our previous visit. We loved the food, it was good again, but I could not refrain from writing another opinion. First, it seems strange, but in my opinion they have a poor choice of local wines. French wines are good, but there are a lot of good wines... More

Sitting outside and enjoying the perfect Catalan dishes served here was a great experience. They were not only delicious, but they also took great care in their presentation -- everything looked beautiful. We had the duck tartare and a delicious rice dish which was the special that day. The service was also friendly and they enjoyed talking to us about... More

We visited La Menta several times 5 years ago. It was one of the best restaurants in La Fosca. After 5 years, we came again to Costa Brava and visited La Menta again. Many things changed since that time in La Menta- the owner, the chef cook. It was very good then and now it is may be even better.... More

Having a holiday home on the Costa Brava, we have on offer a vast range of restaurant choice and quality. When our friends arrived in Palamos on a cruise ship we decided to follow Tripadviser and the six of us chose La Menta for lunch. We opted for the lunch menu of the day at 16.50 Euros, normally a great... More

I had the fish, some rocky rocacabra, and it was just delicious, the service was wonderful with a lot of attention, it was Monday and there were not may tables. The food was outstanding, preparing both the gambas and the fish from Palamos in a very delicate manner. And the winelist is also respectable. So are the prices, but if... More
