Was recommended this place by friends who regularly come to the area and have dined at Korpilombolo for many years and have come to know the owners Annette and Pau. What a fantastic place, small but perfectly formed, it has a cosy and friendly atmosphere without feeling at all cramped. You are made to feel welcome as soon as you... More

We chose this restaurant as we have fond memories of quality small dishes of yummy food on previous trips to L'Escala. We were not disappointed, New Year's Eve set dinner menu comprised of 7 carefully prepared individual, locally sourced dishes. Each one was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. This small intimate restaurant certainly is a must. Can wait for our... More

Not many people are able to innovate a traditional art, but Pau and Anette put so much passion in what they do that the result can't be better... and they make you feel like at home! Small portions allow for you to try different dishes, which is ideal for an experience which goes far beyond simply eating.

We have eaten in this room many times over the last 15 years and it's provided us with many good meals. We first ate in it as Korpilombolo three years ago and for us it has been the go to restaurant in L’Escala ever since with several meals on each visit. The room is tiny – only eighteen seats -...

I could not believe that I had spent holiday time in L'escala for years and never heard of this restaurant! It used to be in a bigger and less centric location until a year or so ago. In any case, the food was just amazing, the chef is pasionate about food and really cares about what he does. The new... More

The reviews for this restaurant made my husband and I want to visit it. We could not get a table ad hoc on Wed 8th but booked for Thurs 9th July. What a revelation the food was, small portions as warned but the flavours were fantastic, the Patatas Bravas, reindeer and veal cheek deserve special mention. We ordered 6 dishes... More

A very nice surprise. Creative cousine. Order 4 dishes per person to be satisfied or share 8 per couple. Nice service, charming small place, only six tables. Highly recommended.

If you are the No. 1 restaurant on Tripadvisor for a resort then there is pressure to make sure you live up to the billing. No pressure then and none shown, these are 2 people who are in the zone. They make serving a full restaurant of 20 covers (small by normal standards) seem like a breeze. Having dined in... More

In the back streets of L'Escala you find a husband and wife team, he Spanish and doing the cooking, she Swedish and front of house (the restaurant is named after her mother's birth place) providing the most innovative tapas type food and working their socks off to supply the small number of tables with dish after dish of excellence.
