We found the best value was to order a set menu which included a starter, main course, dessert and 1/4 L wine/sangria each. The choice and the food quality was good. We sat outside and had a nice view of the castle. I'd definitely recommend trying the fish as it's their speciality.

This was a return visit to one of our regular "haunts".
We booked a table for dinner on the eve of the Fiesta of Saint Joan (John the Baptist) the major festival on the Costa Brava, and although the restaurant was busy we had their usual good service and a table in the open window.
Starting with a shared toasted tomato bread we pushed the boat out with a half litre of Cava Sangria and then enjoyed a very good entrecote steak au poive (€14) and a giant grilled sea bass (€12).both served with fresh vegetables and garnish.
The llobarro (bass) was perfectly cooked and certainly was one of the best we have eaten and loads cheaper than at similar restaurants
As there was no pressure to leave our table we shared a dessert and some more wine whilst watching the fireworks over the castle before moving down to the main beach promenade to mingle with the crowds enjoying the bonfire and more fireworks.
The bill at €51.60 for two was a bit more than our daily budget but was good value on a special evening.
We will return.

On a warm September evening we sat at an outside table with views over the Castle and beach.
Good choice of meat and fish dishes at sensible prices for a restaurant with such good views (€10-12) and a good menu le dia for a few €'s more.
Good sized helpings with lovely side vegetables and good house wine at €8.
Evening made magical as two large cruise ships lit up the bay of Tossa as they sailed passed.

This restaurant is the last of a row of six on the Mar Menuda Promenade very popular at lunch times , especially with the locals.
It was quite busy when we arrived at 8pm on a May evening and we were made very welcome and chose an outside table with views of the sunset over the main beach and castle.
Mixed diners - we heard French , Catalan ,Spanish ,Russian ,Dutch and even Chinese!
Started with a good pan tostados followed by lubina plancha for me a very good fillet steak.. Lovely selection of vegetables and everything well presented and cooked.
Bill including two postres (inc the ubiquitous crema catalan ) wine and water = €50 Great value.
Returned in June - quite quiet but got an inside window seat,still with view of the beach.
Pan tostados,Filette Pimieta,Lubina Plancha.Vino Rosado de la casa,beer and pud came to €46 again very good value
My wife usually likes her fish intact but the seabass was so large she had it off the bone - wonderful value at €12.50 , how do they do it - it would be circa €20 elsewhere.
A very pleasant evening , lovely food , we will return.
