“Fantastic service and really great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

Service is at the top of my list for the food, beverage and retail industry. For Portal de Mar in Toroella de Montgri, Girona - the food is outrageously delicious and service is impeccable. Try their warm mushroom soup, iberico and mango salad with basil dressing and the tuna with bell peppers and brie. Finally a perfectly cooked medium rare tuna! Truly delicious food! Suggest to dim the lighting though as it was quite bright. I'll be coming back for more.
