A Pavement Lunch

The restaurant in Palamos that we thought we would have lunch at was full but that was no bad thing as just around the corner in one of those lovely old back streets of Palamos we found La Menta.

Having seen this restaurant a year or so ago, but having not tried it till this year I can honestly say this was an error. It is superb. Run by a charming young husband and wife team - he cooks and she runs the tables- La Menta is everything that you want from a local restaurant. Try the "snacks" as... More

First of all, the history behind the restaurant and its owners is more than romantic . Also, the food is prepared with passion and the waitresses serve you just right. The food is a combination between french and spanish, and especially the hot cannalloni and the pegion is a visit worthy.

My partner and I just came back from Palamos and went to La Menta for dinner on Saturday 18th July and were not disappointed! The couple running this restaurant are total professionals and are both so passionate about food that you just taste it in every single dish! We had crayfish tartar and Gambas prepared in 3 different ways as... More

After reading recent reveiws I was looking forward to our meal in la menta. We opted for the menu of the day at 16.50 euro. The food is presented nouvelle cuisine style. The portions are quite meagre. I had the duck cannoloni to start which tasted nice but was only one small roll of pasta. My husband had the pasta... More

If you like innovative food using fresh ingredients cooked to perfection and served by charming but professional waitresses then La Menta is the place for you. We enjoyed a delicious three course lunch for just €27.50 each. Amazing value for such high quality cooking. Our starters of artichoke hearts wth iberic ham and parmesan style cheese were delightful.

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!
