I think that it must have been seventeen years ago that I was first told about this wonderful local restaurant. It has been a 'must' ever since. Hidden far away from the tourist area of the town and the only commercial enterprise amongst the homes of the locals it is their restaurant. This is a family run restaurant, run for the locals and I count myself and my family as being extremely lucky to be able to share it with them. There is nothing flash about the place. The food is delicious and the tinto de la casa at 4.50 euros a bottle fantastic value for money. But then you can say that about everything in this delightful secret hideaway.

We found this place by coincidence but don't regret it. It is a classical tapas bar, not fancy at all with 2 televisions at the wall. You should come here for the food. All tapas we tried were delicious. Pimientos del padrón, chipirones, jamón iberico, sardinas,...You cannot go wrong. The menu is also translated in English and French. Wines are basic but cheap. It's definitely a place to go back. Excellent value for money!!!

We were taken to this restaurant by our cab driver because we wanted somewhere different. It certainly was, the food was excellent, supervised by Mum in the kitchen. My husband had in his words ' the best sole he had ever eaten'. Everything was freshly cooked, the wine really really reasonably priced. The whole experience proved that every so often you have to explore the back streets of Sant Feliu and you will not be sorry

Nothing pretentious, just very good home cooked food. There's in fact a proper old granny that cooks the food here!!! It's also very good value for money.

After reading the reviews, we decided to try Extremeno. Upon arriving we almost did not go in because the restaurant does not have great curb appeal. But what it lacks in "decor", it makes up for in quality, flavours and service!!! Only lesser dish were the navajas/ razor clams (a bit overcooked), but the albondigas are the best I've ever tasted, just like the fresh and sumptious tomato sauce accompanying the mussels al vapor, the pimentos de padron were perfect, just like all of the other dishes we've had (chipirinios, picadillo de mejillones/stuffed mussels, clams, sardines, ...)
Between the 4 of us, we had 12 tapas, 12 beers, 1 coffee and 2 desserts for just over €90. Great value for money!
I'm already looking forward to our next visit...
