Excellent food!

Food is excellent and very fresh which does mean expensive but it's worth it! The blonde lady is so helpful and lovely and always makes sure you've got what you need. I see her in there every year and she's always smiley and happy!

Not only for fish, but atmosphere and service are without doubt of the highest standard. Book early for an outside table, ask to see catch of the day and pick your own fish. I cannot recommend the place enough.

Poor service. Questionable quality : last time, I have been sick the whole night. Not friendly. As soon as you have finished, they bring you the bill and ask you to leave as other peoples wait for seats. Impossible to park the car in the close vicinity. Definitely NOT a keeper.

Poor service. Very bad value for money. Even with reservation, you are never sure to get a table. They take profit of their ''middle of the city'' location for boosting their prices. I would name this a ''tourist trap''. There are better and cheaper seafood restaurants in Empuriabrava.

The best fish restaurant in this area. It's not cheap and the ambiance is not sophisticated but if you like sea food it's the place to go

Off-season visit to Empuriabrava and took a chance on this restaurant. Superb dining experience from start to finish but the real treat came in the form of our waitress. Hailing from Romania, this girl made a great night out an unforgettable one, waiting on my wife and I as if we were royalty. Ever had your plate cleaned between courses... More

We have to say that the food was very good. When we arrived we ordered paella for three as we had our three children with us, and felt they could share a portion. The waiter offered to also bring us some bits to eat whilst we awaited the paella. The cost of those bits? Around €45. Yes, you read it... More
