I would strongly recommend this restaurant, and I will certainly come back. UPS: - the food: fish mainly. Fresh, locally fished, tasty and skillfully cooked - the views: located next to the beach. There are 3 windows overlooking the bay. Make sure to ask for a window table when yoy reserve although it's not guaranteed you'll be seating there. -... More

We sat at one of the tables in the window overlooking the beach and harbour, it was probably one of the best dining views we could have experienced in Cadaques. I'd say this is what you'd come for because the food, although very good, wasn't better than other good restaurants in town, just more expensive. Go again? Yes I would,... More

Our hotel recommended Es Baluard because they said it was CONSISTENTLY GOOD, FRESH FOOD. This is music to our ears! My husband and I were lucky enough to get one of the two prized tables overlooking the inlet of the sea and all of the bobbing boats. (Go early for dinner!) The meal was exquisitely prepared and the local wine... More

I say "The Best of Cadaqués" when I describe Es Baluard, because to sit at a table in their window and enjoy a meal overlooking Cadaqués is one of the best dining experiences the village has to offer. The storybook view is amazing. But there are better kitchens with friendlier service at a better price point in Cadaqués. What you... More

one of the best restaurants I have visited. Fresh seafood cooked to perfection in the way you want it. Very knowledgable and service minded staff in a nice setting. If you like seafood do not miss this one ! Their homemede olive oil is also a delightful experience.

I ate dinner at Es Baluard one night in late May and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I began with seafood croquettes, followed by hake in celery; both were delicious. As I understand it, the restaurant has only a few window-side tables (maybe only two?), so I was very pleased to find that my advance request for one of those tables... More
