Me and my boyfriend came here fore dinner as we were searching for paella When we arrived at the restaurant our table was occupied so instead of just leaving us to wait, we were offered a complementary glass of wine and asked to wait downstairs until the table was free We were very impressed by the quick service we received...

We had dinner in the terrace at this Restaurant. The place is very cool in the middle of the village. The meal and fish is very good, however, the price is too high. The wine is very expensive as well. For a wine that you can buy at the supermarket at less than 7 euro they charge more than 20.

We went for a "date night" dinner and had a very nice surprise. It is traditional Spanish cuisine with a touch. Food was authentic, fresh and tasty. The seafood citrus rice is delicious. Service was a bit slow (we're on vacation), but very nice. A must go in Cadaqués.

Tucked away up a side street with very friendly staff serving predominantly local fresh seafood. The restaurant was like eating in someone's living room making it a homely atmosphere and a lovely experience.

We had been advised this was one of the best. The food was well presented and good hosts and atmosphere. But to my taste the fish was less than as soft as optimum although the potatoes cooked perfectly... Other people seemed more impressed with their clamp and piella dishes.

I always liked to get to the restaurant. Even on this visit at Cadaques I was waiting impatiently for dinner at Balconet. the more you expect the deeper your disappointment . The menu has changed and with it the special charm of the place has gone. The Catalunian dishes have become casual cuisine with an Asian influence that only lowered... More

I had a lunch at this restaurant with friends. We had fish and the quality was so good we stop talking for a while :-) the ladies are talking many languages and are very nice with kids. The ambient is very cosy and in summer, the balcony with the plants is very romantic. I will come back for sure!
