We went at La Menta at the beginning of our trip in Palamos this summer. We ended up eating three times at this gem of a restaurant during our two week stay. The food is really, really good. Loved the gambas three ways and the gambas a la plancha. My friends delected themselves with the filet mignon (they had it... More

As a matter of fact, I think this is the first time I have given such a low review of a restaurant. The food that night was simply strange. The gazpacho was bitter as was the 500 Euro per kilo (or so) canalonis were also bitter. Perhaps the chef didn't understand that you can't put fresh basil in because it... More

Charming service and expertly prepared dishes. My sweetheart and I had lunch one afternoon and returned with my family the next. Both times we ordered the tuna tartare. You should, too. The local gambas may be even better. The wine list is more extensive than other restaurants in Palamos and quite a bit more expensive. Excellent desserts and dessert wines.... More

We shared a beautiful tonyina €20 for starters after a first class complementary tomato soup. The tuna had been marinated on lime and quickly seared. It was magnificent served with cherry tomato and horseradish sauce. Small in quantity but taste to be proud of. Followed that with perfectly fresh gambas de palamos. The peach Melba dessert was especially nice. Bread,... More

Thank you for being so friendly and so inviting! It was late and after much walking we stumbled across this small family run restaraunt. The food was amazing and worth every penny. Agathe and her husband Roger have a small menu, but accommodated our difficult tastes. the food was fresh and beautifully prepared. The chocolate desert is a must! Thank... More

The service and the dishes were excellent! Yes, it is not one of the cheap restaurants but one gets really good value for the money! The waitress is very friendly and fast. The cook is an artist, how he is preparing the dishes - I just loved it - the taste, the combinations and the presentation of the food were... More

After a hard days work we tried this restaurant for dinner. Although it is off season we were not disappointed. From the early greeting by our lovely French hostess,we proceeded to be spoiled by the food,the service,the hospitality and the general ambience of the place. The food and the service was second to none & everything was served with a... More
