Outstanding cooking of superb raw material

An unforgettable culinary experience, starting from the delicated crusty baked potatos, that come for free soon after sitting. Best ever steak tartar, and landmark stewed meat. Recommendation: if for lunch, make the reservation for first available time slot (13:30), to ensure quick serving

Where recommended by a local to go here for lunch and were not disappointed. Small restaurant but very cosy and with great food. I had a very nice soup for starter. Waitress were very nice and it's a very nice place. Definitely recommend it.

It's getting pretty difficult nowadays for a food lover, to find a new experience mixing the timeless experience of the right top local products and a small team which loves and cares about food as a holly passion! At this "very" sweet little restaurant, you will be embraced by the passion of the young chef Roger and served by his... More

Modern mediterranean food. Very good. We had lunch, fixed menu at a very good price, considering the high quality. Surprised at finding such a good restaurant here.

Many restaurants offer great value set menu lunches from Mondays to Fridays but very few offer a truly creative choice of dishes beautifully presented and made from top quality ingredients; one of these is La Menta. At 16.50€ for 3-courses including a glass of wine and tasty bread, it's a gastronomic bargain.

We came straight from a long day spent at the beach and exploring the area, and were not really dressed for a nice dinner out. However, we felt very welcome at La Menta - the food was wonderful (we had a lobster special). The staff were very accommodating and charming in every way. We would definitely come back!

You want to taste something really different in a casual and friendly Catalan atmosphere, La Menta is meant for you. Both the fish and the meat are extremely well cooked and seasoned. The wine selection is very good. The service by Agathe is the french touch in a great moment between friends !

The restaurant in Palamos that we thought we would have lunch at was full but that was no bad thing as just around the corner in one of those lovely old back streets of Palamos we found La Menta. Linen tablecloths and napkins and a 25 Euros lunchtime menu in a shaded street proved too great a temptation and weren't... More

Having seen this restaurant a year or so ago, but having not tried it till this year I can honestly say this was an error. It is superb. Run by a charming young husband and wife team - he cooks and she runs the tables- La Menta is everything that you want from a local restaurant. Try the "snacks" as... More
