Our last night on hols in Costa Brava. Have had a lovely holiday. We have eaten here before and had a good meal. A lovely postion by the castle wall. Service ok & excellent menu. As other people have said, quite pricey but good value when compared to UK prices. Nice starters: clams, potatos bravos & calamari. Very good mains:... More

The location is nice, so this might be the reason for the overpricing. However, the food quality doesn't justify the price (you'll find MUCH better food in other places close to this) and drinks are not included in the menu (and they will make you pay a crazy amount of € for a small water bottle).

Not very hungry having had a huge breakfast where we were staying but the midday sun got the better of us and we decided to have a drink at this place, soon after people were arriving in their droves for lunch and we were offered a menu, so we succumbed. One of our lads had various tapas which were all... More

Lovely location by the Castle but the service and attitude stinks! We waited 45mins between our starter and mains to be served my wife's main course and then a further 15 minutes for the my food to arrive which completely spoiled our evening. I did speak to the manager who basically blamed everything other than themselves for the delay even... More

Prawns were actually shrimp & over cooked. Very disappointing. The pork was tender but way way too much salt gave up after a few bites. & the salad was old. Way over priced for the quality of food.

Ordered a seafood platter where the fish was dry and the mussels drenched in butter, with a very dry bland mixed salad with poor produce. Service was lacking - they forgot our drinks order where we had to ask twice and they ignored us the whole night and needed to flag the waiters down anytime we needed something. Didn't appear...

This restaurant is well know for its terrace, just at the feet of the old city wall. The waiters are stopping you in the street in an elegant manner and are not pushing you unlike in some seafront restaurants. The owner is very attentive and greet every single table and food is very good, except the bred. They should really... More
