“Great view, great food”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I've been visiting Tossa de Mar for over 35 years and our wonderful tradition is to have our first meal at Restaurant Minerva with a beautiful view of the Old Town. We usually pick something from the meal of the day which is very reasonable. They have a good, reasonable wine list, also. I especially like their cannelloni and fidua. The service is excellent and the view majestic.

“Great view”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Well priced menu of the day with one of the best views in town. The catalan salad was very good and the grilled fish was excellent

“Very average”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We went to Minerva as it came quite high up on Trip Advisor, but both of us were unimpressed. The food was average and we went to much better places throughout our stay (we also went to some worse places too). We had different dishes from the daily menu which includes a starter, main and desert for a fixed price so we could sample a selection but nothing stood out. Perhaps we had the wrong things? It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. On the plus it wasn't expensive, the service was good, the staff friendly and the view was nice. Overall we'd avoid as there are places serving much better food in the town.

I visited with the family and enjoyed some nice fresh, sardines, mussels and prawns. All were nice and the service was good too. Nice view from the outside tables looking over the bay

“Excellent service and lobster”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We were looking for a place with living lobsters to have one a la plancha, it was EUR 12 per 100 gr. here. We also had a simple mixed salad. The lobster was brought to us, quite unhappy actually, the waiter explained patiently what it was (a girl lobster, 6 years of age), took our order and it was ready in about 15-20 minutes (we were busy with the salad anyway). The lobster was served on a bed of finely cut tomatoes and was excellent, although it did take us some patience to get to the tastiest parts. The waiters were very polite, making themselves invisible when not needed but appearing quickly as soon as you were beginning to wonder where they were. Overall a lovely lobster experience in a nice seafood restaurant.
