Great restaurant! There are many other places to eat on the same road but I would highly recommend this one for the good service, friendly staff and, most of all, the excellent paella.

Excellent service, food ok but rather mean.. 4 small prawns in prawn cocktail. 2 mussels in a seafood paella. We were 50/50 between pizza and another paella. We should have went for pizza. If you want a meal in tossa go to 6.9... or get a pizza.

I visited this restaurant last year and as 10 of us were going to Tossa to celebrate a 50th birthday I contacted the restaurant via trip adviser to book a table, they promptly got back to me and the table was booked and decorated for us. The restaurant is well known for fish however we all ordered steak (the local steak restaurant cannot cater for more than 6 people) which were all cooked to perfection the service was excellent and they presented a decorated cake for the birthday boy - highly recommend!!!

Located alongside the old town walls, this resturant specialises in fish dishes. Main reasons for recommending it.
+very friendly and attentive staff - good with the children.
+outdoor eating area was out of the wind and had good patio heaters - yes weather was chilly in April!
+both meat and fish dishes equally well presented.
+atmosphere adjacent to old town area was ideal especially for people watching.

Can Carlus,whose main restaurant is next to Sa Muralla by the Castle gates, has opened a tapas bar "Es Mes Petit" on the sea front next to Cap D'Or. Although we ate at the main restaurant some years back we have not returned because we found them too pushy in stopping you & trying to drag you in.
Their new place vin i tapas is much more welcoming and offers a menu that is 3 tapas and a glass of "good" wine for €8.30
We chose roast vegetables.calamares and tortilla espanol with a extra of tomato bread and the wine was decent rioja.The menu tapas choice is from 8 dishes although another 20 are A la Carte.Fancy cocktails are also on offer
There are only a few tables outside and it can get very busy when the lunchtime boats come in.
Outside of this time you can get a seat and the service,and the food and the wine,is good. We have added it to our lunch list.
