you do not often get salt crystals on top of rich chocolate sitting in a pool of excellent olive oil but it does work. Try it out.
The fresh grilled tuna with green asparagus was good too.

Infront of the sea, so, great views. Nice place. They have menu. Great food. But, the service could be better.

Don't go here for good food or friendly staff. Don't go here unless you can read and understand Spanish. Don't go here if you want good value for money. The menu is in Spanish and they only understand Spanish. Very surley, unhelpful staff. The food is very bad value for money, expensive and badly cooked. The setting is beautiful but it one of the worst plaes we have visited in this area.

We spent a week in the area and enjoyed several meals in various restaurants using recommendations from Trip Advisor and our guide book. This restaurant was recommended by both and we went there after visiting Sunday market in Sant Feliu. It is easy to find on the sea front and the setting is nice, although we couldn’t quite enjoy the view as all the ‘sea view’ tables had been reserved. The menu was only in Spanish. When we asked for one in English (asked politely, in Spanish), we got an abrupt ‘no’ and nobody tried to help us even though they could see that we were struggling to understand the menu. We don’t expect every restaurant in Spain to have a menu in English (although most are happy to cater for foreign tourists and provide menus in different languages including even Russian) but this is an expensive establishment in a prime touristy location and yet completely unwilling to help its non-Spanish customers.

Menu del Dia seemed to be extensive but not particularly imaginative, food was ok although nothing special. We were served by the most miserable waitress in Costa Brava. When I say ‘served’ I actually mean plates rudely shoved in front of us without a hint of a smile.

The biggest surprise of all was our dessert. One turned out to be a pile of sliced strawberries with Anchor squirty cream on top, while panna cotta looked 'shop bought' and came with a spoonful of marmalade added on the side of the plate. I seriously wonder if this was some kind of joke by their mischievous kitchen staff, as was the grumpy waitress. I almost hope so but won’t be returning to check.

We had a very nice lunch, 3-courses menu for 18E. The view on the bay and harbor is beautiful, and the food very nice: fresh fish and top quality seafood.
we do recommand this place. Enjoy!
