For many years it has been and is the best restaurant in Ampuriabrava. Nice place, big restaurant without problems of place in the center of the village. Splendid fish and meat and a good variety of wines. Good service...what else can we expect?

Been a customer of El Capitan for over 30 years and its consistency has never varied. Always a hearty meal, great selection of menus, excellent helpful staff and a great ambiance - right at the heart of Empuriabrava.

The first bottle of wine was corked. It was changed without question. The Monk fish and prawns was excellent and the grilled tour it... More
