“PRICEY BUT VERY GOOD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

we paid twice as much here as everywhere else but it was twice as good! If you like fish this is the place to go. the dishes are well cooked and imaginative, although in our taster menu they skimped a bit on fish content eg prawns in some dishes. Some of the seafood lives there until you choose to eat it! It does meat and veg dishes as well. The wine we felt a little pricy. The tables are a bit cramped but it is busy and not a huge place so they need to fit a lot in. Interesting loos!!

“Peix de qualitat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Pots gaudir de peix fresc en un ambient acollidor, tot banyat amb un bon vi.
You can enjoy fresh fish in a comftable place, I recomment ask for a good white wine.

“Excellent food, great service, bit lacking in atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Excellent fish perfectly cooked. Innovative dishes - clearly a very competent chef. I chose the turbot and was not disappointed.

Friendly service and good choice of sensibly priced wine. Restaurant lacks some atmosphere for me - spartan decoration but the food more than makes up for that.

Would willingly go back when next in Girona.

“Outstanding fish restaurant in Girona centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

We received an invitation for a la carte dinner as a birthday gift, enjoyed every bit of it and will surely be back for more! The dishes are a great combination of traditional cooking with creative touches, the portions are huge (we actually had to cancel one dessert because we were too full) and the prices are fair.
The selection of wines is also excellent, and the service efficient and gentle. The only downside, if there has to be any, is the space. It can get very crowded and the tables are so close to each other that you hear every conversation around you.

“Fantastic seafood restaurant--fresh, creative cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

We try to eat at Sa Clova once a week--their menu del día at 16€ is a great value and we have never been disappointed. We have also ordered from the "carta" and been quite pleased. Innovative combinations of taste and texture, ample portions, very fresh fish and shellfish (they even have their own fish tank!) are among the top reasons we like to eat there. The desserts are also luscious. We are always well treated by the very friendly staff. Be sure to call in advance for reservations--it's a relatively small restaurant.
