Hadn't been here in a while Oh how it has changed. The decor the same, but the food... Fabulous. Menu del dia is not cheap but not overpriced at €27.50 3 courses inc bread, wine and water, but worth it. Portions were large. Food was fresh. Ate a la carte too, a Paella and it was the best I have... More

We were 4 persons. Starters were pleasant. Wine good. Main dishes, arrow Dr Cabra De mar, fideuada and pasta fresca con pesto were really bad.

Lovely dinner with great service. You can eat cheaper in l'estartit but it won't be the best quality. We had the most delicious meal from the set menu and it was worth every penny. Would definitely recommend.

We visited one evening and had a very nice meal, the calamaris was excellent as was the paella. The proprietor was very welcoming and served the food himself.

We have seen people looking at the fixed price menu and deciding that it is too expensive but having eaten here 5 times over the last few years we would say that the food is always delicious and the portions are generous and when the fact that the wine and water are included,it represents great value for money.The place is...

The set menu is great. Yes it looks expensive compared with other places in the town, but the quality of food, wine and service is well worth the extra money.

The food was pleasant until the stomach cramps set in! We are thinking it had to be the fresh shellfish plater that only one of us ate that developed a severe upset stomach. Very disappointing because we liked it there…

We have been coming to this restaurant fo a few years, throughout the seasons. We've brought family and friends who all now include it in as one of their favourite restaurants, one to return to time and again. The food is always good, tasty and varied. Although not the cheapest restaurant in town, the quality is so good that it... More

If you love seafood and this is the place to visit. We have been going first as a couple and now as a family for 20 odd years. The fixed price menu includes wine water and bread (usually warm from the oven) so there are no hidden extras and at 22e (20 at lunch) it is fantastic value. The menu... More

La Gaviota is in Estartit and not Torroella de Montgri. Down on the sea front with excellent views of the ocean this has got to be the best restaurant in town. Luis with his family and superb chef produce a totally amazing dining experience. The menu del Dia at 23€ is a gastronomic delight. The constant standard of this restaurant... More
