I have been coming to Tossa for over 30 years. This place was always a favorite with wonderful ambiance and good food. But this visit was different. It is still a lovely looking place but the food is just average. An order of mussels had about 1/3 that weren't open. A beef filet was tough and gamey, and the swordfish... More

The food was cold , tasteless and took ages to come. We was expecting a good meal but everything was a very low standard. Stake was pretty much rare when we asked for it well done but it was red. The pork was hard like cardboard and didn't have any taste and the shrip cocktail was 4 tiny shrip on... More

There is a good choice of set menus in varying prices. The fries with my main were sadly undercooked and I would not opt for the 1/4 chicken again as it was a rather underfed hen. Thankfully the creme Catalan saved the day. My husband enjoyed the entrecôte on the bone.

La Bota is in a picturesque setting by Tossa’s big church. We found it peaceful and relaxing there on a mild evening at the end of May. It had an open front so you feel like you are sitting outside even when you are inside. Somehow it seemed less commercial and more suited to a relaxed family meal than the... More

We went back to this Restaurant again this year. Although we only visited once we had a lovely evening. The food was very tasty as always. We were serenaded this year by a really good guitarist. It made the ambience very different. All in all a really pleasing night. Good service by friendly staff.

We visited this restaurant three times on our recent holiday in Tossa. It is very good value for money. They do a set menu of the day. This includes three courses, bread and wine or water. My friend had the cod with ratatouille on two occasions. I had the paella with my husband. All the dishes were really good. The... More
