All the complaints about the prices here are accurate, they are outrageously high. I remembered "high" from a previous visit, but outrageously high captures it. The only thing that's low is the prices of some of the wines.
The service is casual, but we had three courses in 2 hours, which is about par or better for a white tablecloth restaurant in Spain. Food arrived as ordered, and we had no problem with getting extras when we asked for them.
For appetizers, we had anchovies, small octopi, and calamari rings. The anchovies were particularly expensive (for anchovies) but the best I have had in years, and the baby octopi, sauteed in their ink, were simply wonderful. The calamari rings were particularly meaty, though the batter was iffy, and they came stuck together - it's almost like they were beneath the cares of Can Sole.
I had the Zarzuela, which I found a revelation. A wonderful, if olive oily sauce of saffron, tomatoes, and seafood stock served as the base for a variety of fish and shellfish. The other mains at the table were lobster and turbot. The staff seemed surprised that anyone would want melted butter with lobster, but provided it promptly. Anyway, they all seemed nice, but my Zarzuela was definitely at the head of the pack.
Everyone had dessert except for me. The chocolate things seemed fine, but a mandarin sorbet was simply superb, just amazing.
So I can't give Can Sole a perfect score, but I think if I owned the restaurant, I might do the same thing - raise prices to pay for the excellent seafood and a nice profit margin. Greed is good seafood at Can Sole.
