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

Excellent restaurant with fantastic food. We have visited it during our prolonged weekend based on positive reviews and we were not disappointed at all. To be honest this was one of the best food I have ever eaten and if I would ever happen to be in Spain I will try to come again. Remember to make reservation upfront otherwise... More

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
