The best place I ate in town. The service is really good, well organize and the prices of the meals are really low. If you are looking for a place to eat seafood I guess this is the place you are looking for.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Vilanova and one we have visited many times over the years. The food is always great quality and value and the service warm and friendly. The only problem is getting a table!! If you don't mind eating early, getting to the restaurant before normal Spanish meal times is recommended.

This is an excellent place for Tapas, the last time prior to this that I ate there was in 1992 that is how long they have been in business. So good I had to eat there twice during my holiday!

We go here at least once a month. My husband likes the pulpo a la gallega and chipirones. The tortilla is great, and so are the grilled vegetables. Get the patatas bravas without salt and put your own on, and get the sauce in a saucer as it's very hot. We often have pimientos del padron too, they're fairly salty... More

This place is not along the waterfront, which is interesting, considering it is always jammed with locals and a reservation is hard to get. However, we discovered twice, that when turned down for a reservation we simply went, parked and showed up. They took us both times, so try that approach! We had a stupendous seafood dinner, never saw a... More
