Description: El Barroco "and" Cadaques ", two magical planets have been particularly related to the painter. Our hospitality, friendliness and atmosphere with each artist have created and try to keep accompanied by an excellent variety of Lebanese mezes, grilled fragrant spices of the East. In 1979, the great "Maestro" has created the logo "EL BARROCO" Once the "master" sent us a group of Chinese designer from San Francisco to make clothes for the opening night of the DALI Museum in Figueres. Dali reserved the "Patio" when waned to dine in el Barroco, always with his "Buick", wearing his black catalan sneakers with white spots, inviting hippies, gypsies and other people at its table to shock and provoke his distinguished guests, singing and dancing on the tables even while taking pictures from the event. After eating the grapes the Empordan, Dali was the first to leave the restaurant, to return a few days later. Dali's favorite foods - Steamed mussels taken near Cap de Creus Cap - Shoulder of lamb is Catalan. - Grilled lobster with garlic. - Grapes and Wine Muscat de l'Emporda. - The famous mineral water "Vichy Catalan." While simple Gala Menu was: - Poached Eggs. - Sardines in oil.

“Quirky decoration and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

The problem with Cadaques is the parking. The result is that you cannot miss this restaurant on the way from the car park to down town Cadaques. We were drawn to the quirky decoration and the gorgeous little patio. Irresistible, and then seeing that they served Lebanese food that clinched it. We probably did not do justice to the food because it was too early for us to eat but what we had was excellent and very enjoyable.

“Best Lebanese Restaurant, Great food and Ambiance.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We were a group of 12 people and we were looking for a good restaurant and suddenly we have found "El Barroco" Restaurant. We were surprised by the hospitality of the owner "Sam", the food and the ambiance.

We have almost tasted nearly 20 mezze: Fish,Grilled meat... Everything was really delicious,the service was perfect and of course the price was very reasonable.

For sure we will be back to this amazing restaurant.
