After a number of visits to this restaurant in the last several years, we returned to eat their delicious pizzas with a fresh salad and good red wine. Unfortunately, for the first time, we were very disappointed. The service was very slow and the pizza was not nearly as good as the other times: not the usual toppings and the... More

The food was OK but we did not have our meals at the same time - one person got the food when the rest had finished their food. We got two dishes that we have not ordred (eg meat lasagne instead of veg. lasagne)

Excellent lunch - plentiful 3 course meal, including bread and wine, for 16 euros! Service was good, especially in view of the fact that we were a large group, and everyone was pleased with their food. There is also an a la carte men. The restaurant is close to the sea and the Greek and Roman ruins of Empuries, with... More

The place is a bit of a tourist trap with good food and a varied menu. Compared to other places we ate on this trip it was over priced and with a "pushy" service to clear tables for new clients. Nothing of the relaxed atmosphere I like. I ate just as well or better with equally good - and cheaper... More

I was with a group of 14. Our hotel called for a reservation about a half hour before we arrived. We were seated promptly. The restaurant is on a very scenic square. I recommend eating outside when the weather allows. The food was good and fresh. The staff speaks some English, but not perfect.

Only problem was that we had booked the day before and when we arrived there was no table for us. They tried to squeeze an extra table in , but next to the service area where the staff would have been continually passing the table. I said that we did not want to sit there and asked for another table.... More
