Restaurant details
Reviewed September 5, 2017

We ate here about 3 times, for lunch ... the menu at 18.50 euros all in, including wine, is what attracts. The choice never varies, but there is a huge range of choices for first and second courses, large enough but not so huge for desserts. Menu is in several languages, but translations leave something to be desired. Efficient, sometimes too efficient, service, until (once again) you come to pay!), and food is OK rather than superb or supremely tasty - it operates on a cheap and cheerful approach, so cuisine is not always perfect. Some meals worked for me, others did not. Nice ambiance, and it looks as though the inside bar is worth visiting out of season too.

Excellent option if you want to avoid the extremely expensive restaurants at the center of Platja Sant Pol and still enjoy a good meal. They serve a standard menu at 18,50 eur and a special menu for 30 eur. Both have many options options for starters, main and dessert. Quality of the food is really good, well prepared and with fresh ingredients. If you are looking for something more creative and more personal service then you can try the neighbouring restaurant La Clova. And there you pay a bit more of course, but worth it. We had dinner twice in El Racó and once in La Clova and enjoyed all three nights. Highly recommended.

Nice place to have lunch for a beach day, they offer a couple menus. I do recommend the cheap one, you have multiple dishes to choice....
Carmen will make sure you enjoy the meal.

Chose the menu option for all of us. However our daughter is vegetarian and there were perhaps only 3 things she could eat. The food was ok. Nothing particularly tasty. Service was quite poor. Setting nice.

You can eat "à la carte" or go for a menu, even for dinner.
The choice was extended and as you expect in a restaurant by the seaside, with fresh seafood.
Lovely terrace which is as well prepared in case the weather turns a little bit rough.
