Without doubt the best restaurant in Calella Parafrugell. Impressive menu and impeccable service. One of the more expensive restaurants but definitely worth the extra.

Excellent fish. Menu is a combination of fresh ideas and traditional cooking. Not cheap, but good fish isn't. Very pleasant service, with good English spoken. Busy at weekends in season. First dinner booking taken is 8.30 p.m. (A jambina is a fish trap.)

The place have an impossible sad decor. We were eating precious and rare sea food, but now the place is showing very indecent high prices with a lift music of the sixties. No views, no atmosphere, food ok. A super expensive sad moment to spend....More
