This is a great little wine bar and tapas place, run by a quirky guy and his charming daughter. The food is a notch above the usual (try their patatas bravas which are a little different, the rolled prawns and be sure not to miss the figs with decadent and delicious chocolate sauce). It doesn't have a view, but more... More

Ate inside in the restaurant which had a nice atmosphere. The food was very good, nice starter of tomato bread and olives. I had the duck in red wine, which was lovely and a very large leg of duck. My husband had a steak which was cooked to perfection. Friendly staff made it an enjoyable experience.

Enjoyed a fabulous meal here whilst in L'Escala. Attentive staff and lovely food. The menu is not extensive but the quality of the food served is excellent. I started with a Blood Mary which included all the ingredients you would expect and not just Worcestershire sauce. My wife had a glass of champagne and the waitress opened a new bottle... More

The owner Angelo mixed a large jug of white sangria made from champagne/cava which was really super as we waited for lunch - a great way to chill out and relax prior to the meal! The food was excellent especially the fish paella, which contained all high quality sea food ingredients and the service was very gracious and efficient. The... More

The home made paella and sangria attracted us to sit in this restaurant which turned out to be no disapointment at all. The warm strawberry crema catalana was delicious as well. A few tables, chilled atmosphere. The younger waiter is very pleasant and smily.

It is a couple of years since we ate at Golf Isabel - the last time was a New Year's Eve which was a fantastic evening - but this time we were looking for somewhere to have a "better" dinner with friends. Golf Isabel did not disappoint - the restaurant was cosy and we were made to feel extremely welcome... More

I returned to El Golf Isabel rather reluctantly after my last visit was spoiled by the strange and aggressive behaviour of the lady "in charge". This time, however, we were greeted by the owner who was both relaxed and charming. We had not booked but were immediately shown to a table and made to feel welcome. Two of our party... More
