Excellent tapas in beautiful surroundings. Very busy though, gets full and tight for space sometimes.

The girl who greeted us at the “entrance” was by far the most pleasant of the staff. It went downhill from there as once we experienced the rest of the service Meson del Conde has to offer, it became very obvious that it is her job is to keep packing the guests in. Our money bought us the pleasure of... More

Meson del Conde is the grand old man of St Marti d'Empuries. It's food is substantial and always good, but if you are there in the season of the calcots, that's when it is at its best.

Situated in beautiful St Marti D'Empuries close to L'Escala. We had a lovely Paella although it was served on a plate without us seeing the pan, none of the theatre of bringing the pan to the table or offering a little seconds. Moules to start were fine and the charges in line with the other outlets in St Marti. My... More

We were looking forward to having a lovely meal here after having read good reviews, but we were bitterly disappointed with one of our meals which was prawns and salmon salad that was 'off' - totally inedible. Having said that we weren't charged for this course, but it did hamper the evening somewhat. No desires to return.

Good service, menu and advice. Tapas we recommend. No rush to make room for the next guests. Quality food. Went twice to this place. Several good restaurants around the court. Try them as well.

The food was decently good but it was impossible to eat outside because of all the flies there were. The service wasn't anything memorable but we were satisfied with our lunch in general. I recommend to get fish.

We have been in Spain for the last 11 days and these tapas were not bad but certainly well below average. The cod donuts and goats cheese salad were ok. The patatas bravas are the worst I have had since being. Not inedible but poor. A lovely setting in the square, but one to forget rather than remember.

The tapas were delicious but the waiting staff seemed to struggle with our order and forgot the wine and had to be reminded of our tapas dishes.

We read very good reviews on this restaurant and we decided to try it when visiting Empuries. We must say that the service is the poorest I've ever seen. We had a reservation but we stayed for 30 min in the door without anyone even saying hello. We tried to stop the servers with no luck at all. We decided... More
