Service was bad from the beginning to the end. After getting knocked over glasses and a wine bottle, we had to wait 1.5 h to get our meal served. Adding up to not having enough wine glasses, missing out not having informed us about changing...More

We enjoyed our shellfish lunch here in excellent surroundings on the beachfront. Service was good and friendly, having said that there were only a few customers in at that time, the place was spotlessly clean. Only drawback was that we felt the meal was well...More

Had a lovely 3 course lunch here, staff were very friendly and food was good. Salad to start, followed by a delightful pork dish, finished off with pudding - washes down with the house rose - which again was good. I would revisit

Not a particularly good beach side eatery. The food is average and in my view overpriced. I should have checked the Trip Advisor reviews before I travelled to this area. I think that the photograph would have put me off.

The Pica Pica restaurant is in the boring town of Sainte Marie. It is right up the beach, so while eating you can enjoy the sea view. We had excellent fresh shellfish, prepared in a more spanish than French way, but hey, this is Catalunia!...More
