Was super busy but was given a great table (No. 26) with a view of the bay. Had pear and spinach salad, pan con tomate and octopus. Food was top quality with friendly staff. Great for people watching on the beach.

This restaurant is somewhere anyone staying in the Begur area should go to. In the bay at Aguiablava you park in a public car park and head down towards the beach. We went for dinner which is probably the best time as the small beach is almost deserted by then and with the lights twinkling and the bay serene it... More

We came here with a group of friends (all Spanish except for me), and everyone was disappointed. Considering the dozens of restaurants around this area that serve nothing but amazing fresh fish at very reasonable prices and cooked perfectly, this restaurant really fell below par with its competition. The mussels came out cold and bland, when we complained they then... More

So what to make of the mixed reviews, it is expensive but our view was that it was worth it , the food was delicious and the service attentive. Portions are large so you can easily share starters.

The restaurant is in an amazing place. We were however expecting a lot more from the food. We had the sepionetes and mussels as starters, which were quite nice, and then a very expensive grilled fish which had no taste and was really not good. The service was a bit of a disaster. They came three times with things we... More

This place has the perfect setting in lovely Aigua Blava. As we sat down we realised we had a very sticky table. The intent was sort of rustic, so we did not mind. Except they charge less than rustic. The wine lis was sufficient and the service was friendly and efficient. It is a seafood restaurant so we ordered fresh... More

I expected a lot, beautiful place, nice arrangement, interesting menu. We paid 6e euro ordering patatos with sauce, paella and dessert. We've chosen basic white vine. The only advantage of paella is that is from wood fire. Basically little bit salty and OVERCOOKED - really is one mistake tha your prawn is not juicy or the shell is breaking when... More

We trusted trip advisor and visited this restaurant twice. First time was nice, even if the responsible of the restaurant (I suppose) was not kind and refused rudely our reservation. We booked through our hotel. During our second visit we realized that their menu is too small and there was nothing interesting to try... The small squids are horrible as... More

Second visit after a year and still very busy. If you visit this place on a weekend the beach is crazy busy, which makes the restaurant busy, so it's good to book. For starters we had the gazpacho which was nice, but not spectacular. Then we choose the noodle paella that I've forgotten the name of. Omg! Get it, it... More
