The pear croquetas with full green colorant wasn't looking nice, the cod i didn't liked and the dessert was hard and horrible

Absolutely very good. If you like a nice atmosphere, white linen, artistic and well tasting dishes you will have a pleasant time.

Good food and good wine with both traditional touch together with exclusive touch. And not too expensive or to crowded. Very good service and nice climated location. Clean and light interiour that made you feel welcome and comfortable.

From the moment you enter you can feel the hostility towards foreigners. Poor English, abrupt service with the only sign of warm contact was the efficient submission of the bill. The menu is both simple and confusing but the prawn salad and Anchoivies was ample and tasty, as was the price! Avoid fresh fish catch of the day as it... More

I had spotted this lovely restaurant on Trip Advisor some days ago. We tried other places first which, in hindsight, was very stupid. While the other places are mediocre to barely ok they are also tourist traps. You can hand over a lot of money for poor dining and the staff are not interested in serving you! However, Le Fabricia...

Excellent food and service. I had the €40 set instead of maneuvering through the menu and my wife had a fish dish. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Lovely cannelloni with home made pasta Wine very good Rioja at 20 euro. Superb interior and attentive professional staff without being in your face. This restaurant was recommended... More

An upmarket restaurant close to the port of Palamòs, it has attractive decor & crisp white table linen. Unfortunately though no views of the port and sea. At weekends they offer 2 menus at 27€ & 39€ plus à la carte. I went for lunch on a Sunday & found all the tables well hidden from the glorious sunshine outside.... More

Revisited catalan cuisine. Fresh fish and specifically the appetizers are really good. If you are a group, I strongly recommend to share various starters as if they were tapas. Desserts are also delicious and main courses are not big. Wine menu is good so get ready for an around 50/60€ complete dinner each.

Thank annaner
