You turn off the road linking the C31 with Pals and drive until you get to a big restaurant in the middle of nowhere. But it's only 1.30pm and the car park is already full. And the wait for a table is 45 minutes. Is it worth staying? You bet. With no passing trade as such, it is the reputation... More

Had heard great things from family who are regulars, and at last I managed to sample the delights in July 2016. So straightforward and simple - just order the size of chicken - whole, half or quarter - add chips and huge tasty plateful delivered very quickly. Delicious. Don't pass it by.

Let me tell you... If you travel with family, and we travel with four it's not easy to find kids friendly restaurants in the "Spanish Riviera" or also called Costa Brava. By chance going between little towns, Ullastret, Pals, Begur, we came across this handy, good, and affordable BBQ restaurant. Specialities: chicken, rabbit, salads and good fries. Price: have lunch... More

Although it has a truck stop feel to it the food is of a high quality and the chicken and chips is like no chicken I have ever tasted. We are here three times during our stay we loved it so much.

Spotlessly clean ! We have eaten here many times during the last 25 years or so and have at no point been disappointed. They simply do the best chicken around at a very reasonable price. Since our last visit we talked about the quality of their green salad. Simply outstanding. How do they do it ? So this time we... More

Our family have loved visiting the original Can Padres nearer Pals village for coming up for fifty years. We were very pleased when the new restaurant opened in the 1990s. Not the prettiest of buildings, very clean though and very noisy inside, but that adds to the atmosphere. Staff always friendly and efficient. Although you could never beat the chicken... More

You must try the chicken which is very crispy and fries home made, excellent for lunch or dinner with a pot of Sangria. Good value for money but it is very busy so noisy.. Try also the aioli which is very (very!) tasty !

Went with the family. Our main courses came in less than 5 minutes which alarmed us all. We all ordered chicken after reading the reviews. It is definitely fried the chicken, and was very much more like a less battered KFC than a rotisserie Chicken which is not what I was expecting. Flavour yes and masses of chips if you... More
