Great food, had Calhoun and paella, really very good. House red is very drinkable, and plentiful, too. Child friendly, especially as the owners young kids were sting their lunch in there at the time. Recommended, stands out hove the many average places round here with high TA ratings....

Stopped for late lunch based on positive TA reviews. Service was friendly. Grilled vegetables were okay except they were served swimming in oil. Pizza was not tasty (compared, for example, to La Grotta). Located on a street with many other dining options.

There were only 3 other tables occupied and it was interesting to se that they appeared to be be return visitors as they knew exactly what to order with seafood platters and paella being quickly served-the chef obviously has a following.The food still has that “home cooking” feel as we shared loma a la plancha and a delicious plate of freshly grilled vegetables which included red & green peppers, wafer thin courgette and aubergine, topped with a generous serving of griddled asparagus. Real country tomato bread complimented the dish and we shared a cream catalan dessert. House wine was €8.30 and was the only disappointment-not really up to the standard of house wine in the other restaurants.
Our bill came to €31
Good service and a nice complimentary chupito of Orujo,shame about the wine but still on our return list.

Excellent service and the food was very good. We had mussels to start and stuffed squid for mains. All washed down with a very acceptable house white. Most of the surrounding restaurants are more expensive and, in my opinion, not as good.

Apologies for any typos as this comes from an iPhone. El Cellar del vi was clearly our favorite restaurant, so much that we went back despite pledging to try as many establishments as possible. It's location is on the heart of the busy restaurant area of old town, and it's somewhat indistinguishable, but this place stood out in terms of food quality, service, value, and atmosphere! We had the squid ink rice, paella, sardines, mussels, baby squid and razor clams amongst a couple other dishes. All very good particularly the sardines, squid ink rice and mussels. We did the menu one day, ala cart another, either way very good values. Perhaps equally important was the service from the staff and owner. Easy going as is almost all of Tossa, but genuinely interested in your enjoyment. Dessert is hit Or miss in tossa, but the flan was best here. We've been to 6 places so far after 3 days, our favorites have been la Luna, and Brasera pini but el cellar is the best to us. You cannot go wrong here.
