Great location and view across the bay serving seafood. Food was nothing special and we have had better many times before but the fact it has a great location and pretty good paella. It wasn't a bad experience but wouldn't return as there is better quality food elsewhere. The bill was quite expensive for a menu del dia but understandable... More

Overpriced, bread not fresh, poor fish quality - but nice location and view. Shame they didn't do better with the food.

We visited here 6 months ago and reviewed it as worth a return visit, so we did. Maybe it was a bad day or too early in the season but we were disappointed with our return. The service was pleasant enough but maybe "leisurely" would also describe it. The mains were far too small for the prices charged and bread... More

I ate lunch here with three others on December 17, 2015. The small restaurant is fully enclosed and across the street from the water, so its location is good. Four of us ordered the 3-course special, with the main dish being paella. The paella was filled with cheap FISH with a few gambas on top, and it was greasy. The... More

We chose the 20 euros lunch menu (1 appetizer, 1 main dish and 1 dessert). They charged us extra for drinks and for bread (for bread!!!). The location is great, right in the center of town with a great view of the sea. But for us it was simply not worth the 45 euros we had to pay. The appetizers... More

The view of Cadaquez bay is excellent, the front row of tables at the huge, open air picture window afford the best view in Cadaquez. The service is efficient and very pleasant and happy to meet the customers' needs. The table settings are a cut above. We enjoyed the sangria greatly and the food was very good. The moule mariniere... More

This is a fish restaurant on the promenade of Cadaques. It has a huge picture window looking out on this picturesque little bay. The cooking is very good and as well as a la carte it has very good value set meals and the service is very friendly. I ate here twice, once at night and once at lunchtime and... More

We randomly stopped for lunch at this restaurant that is a little off the center of the beach, and found excellent paella, great mediterrian salad assorted with amazing warm goat cheese and the service was very good. We liked it a lot. And the owner knows Dali who used to dine here in the late 70's (so he claims.... We... More

Had almost given up on finding somewhere that served a vegetarian paella on a recent trip to Cadaques when we were lucky enough to find this lovely restaurant overlooking the sea. Service was prompt and attentive and our wine was crisp and fresh. It was reassuring to have to wait for the paella as this is a dish that should... More
