Can Roura is supposed to be the best restaurant of the surrounding area. In terms of the quality of the food, I can more or less agree. But in terms of service and general armosphere, I must admit it was a bit of a disappointment. We enjoyed our visit, but I would not come back here anytime soon...

Nice food, excellent wine and friendly waiters. We had three courses and it was very good and the size of the restaurant is perfect - it is still cosy.

We ate here twice during our recent holiday in L'Escala and both meals were absolutely super. We booked a table in the small, intimate inner courtyard which is cool and quiet. The food was fantastic and I can recommend the fish and chips (not chips...but crisps in the batter) which you can have as a starter or main course. The... More

What great find, this is a superb restaurant in the beautiful village of St Marti. You will enjoy great food and a fine location. The service is faultless, friendly and not at all intrusive, don't miss this great restaurant.

We have eaten here twice this week and it is now our favourite restaurant in the area. Food is amazing and the staff are incredibly helpful and attentive. This is a must go to and I'm already looking forward to coming back next summer.

This is our second visit to Can Roura and the restaurant is one of two restaurants that I would recommend to anyone visiting the resort. In the small picturesque square of San Martin the restaurant offers a cool rustic interior space and exceptional food and service. The owner is the chef and in any spare moments that he has he...

We've not been to Can Roura for a couple of years but Joan laid on a tasting menu to die for....we've eaten out a lot in L'Escala and the dining experience at Can Roura has to be sampled.

The biggest problem for me was the portion size. We had eight courses and I'm a big eater, but I was full after 5 courses and could barely sample the last three. Service was great and chef was friendly and I liked him a lot. Taste wise it was not for me. I enjoyed half of the courses but the... More

We ate here at least twice during our last 3 days of holiday, having only found it towards the end. We're already dreaming of going back. Delicious food, heavenly service, delightful waiters/waitresses. Couldn't be better.

Can Roura is closed to walk-in business through the autumn and winter, but it is possible to book private dining, as we did for a family celebration. The owner did everything for us, chef, waiter, wine waiter, and enjoyed himself as much as we did. The Chef's Table was a degustation menu, each dish innovative and almost unique. I can... More
