We were recommended this place and would certainly pass it on. Well organized and very complete offer at the buffet. It’s the sort of buffet place that tries to put on that extra that attracts the crowds. Ring beforehand, though - at peak times you’ll have to wait ...

The spread in the buffet was amazing. The variety is so much that you you don't know where to start. I definitely over ate. The woman behind the counter is very friendly. However the person serving me was not so efficient. A must visit restaurant if you are in the area.

The place looks nice and when we arrived it was fairly busy so we expected something decent despite the all you can eat format. However, there was not much that we could actually eat... dishes look nice on the counter but when you try the quality is disappointing. It s really a huge waste of food and money. I do not recommend it.

Have returned every year for the past three years to sample the delightful array of Catalan dishes.Probably the best ever but, make sure you book for a Sunday lunch as it is inundated with French.
Very varied dishes including shell fish, meats, hot or cold.And sweets that many will only dream of, but here you can sample a little and if you like go back and get more. To finish there are dessert wines, cheese, nuts and bread. just perfect for the hungry traveller. two timings for Sunday 12.30 and 14.30 but you are only allowed an hour and a half so make the most of your time.
Onr price pays for it all, wine.water and food. well done and thank you.

This nice place, on the main road from the sea to Figueres, but in the middle of nowhere is worth a visit if one is hungry or wants to try the various dishes of Catalonia. Many varied Tapas, many main courses and a large number of different desserts are offered. All dishes are well prepared and presented. Wine and water is included in the price.
