We were quite surprised to be brought to this fine establishment with some local firends. The service was impeccable. The host was very polished. The food was classic Catalan with a very fine presentation. We had great carn d'olla, seafood and wonderful desserts. The restaurant has a nautical theme, and is very comfortable. I would go back for a very... More

Worth a visit I found the food pretty good the place itself is okay, like any review make your own mind up, although the reviews for here seem fairly critical it is worth a visit regardless.

Had dinner last night 3 people. We were the only table. We all opted for the 49 euro seasonal tasting menu. The food was awful. Mostly frozen, badly executed,(menu sounded great). I expected to wake today with food poising, luckily I didn't! For a restaurant in the Michelin guide this is a must avoid! Next to a strip club and... More

This is probably the best restaurant in the Blanes and Lloret area, but it is also a pricey one for a special occasion. However you can eat there more cheaply. I've eaten here many times over the years and I always go during the week for a lunchtime "menu del dia" which has always been mouthwatering and a bargain at... More

This is a very nice restaurant for lunch or dinner, they serve mainly fish and seafood but also meat. They have a weekly changing extra menu with seasonal dishes. They serve a great paella and have impressive winelist.

OK, so I have read a few of the reviews say it's next to a 'showgirl' club and near to a main road... But you soon forget that once inside. Excellent food, great place and very friendly staff. What more so you want from a restaurant?!!

Great food, great service and good value for money. We stayed at the Santa Marta which is around the corner so decided to give it a try and gald we did. Its a cab ride but worth the extra. Only downside is its close to a mian road which does give a little background traffic noise but dont let this... More
