“Very rude”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

My husbands from Galicia so while on holiday wanted to try the food.We arrived at 12.15pm and he asked for the menu.the waitress gave him a long hard stare and snapped that they dont serve lunch til 1pm and sulkily went and got the menu,then slammed it down on the table and walked off! We then were ignored for ten minutes so we left in disgust . Surely she could have said we dont serve lunch til 1pm and you can either have a drink or come back rather than be so rude!

“A restaurant with atmosphere and delicious food.....”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We have just come back from a holiday in Tossa de Mar and this was our nearest restaurant and certainly one of the best.
We first went there on a Sunday morning for coffee....there were local Spanish families there and the atmosphere was vibrant and welcoming. Although we spoke little Spanish and the waiters little English we got on famously... with a little humour! We returned to the restaurant on the following Tuesday evening and had the very best paella we have ever tasted! Absolutely delicious!

We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

“Away from the crowds and popular with the locals”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

If you've been to Tossa and are reading this but don't recognise the name of the establishment, you are probably wondering where this place is, but the chances are you have walked past it or very close to it, especially if you have been to the market. It is the cafe/restaurant diagonally behind the Maxi Dia supermarket.

Because of its location, it doesn't seem to get many tourists as customers. This probably explains why it's never been reviewed on Tripadvisor before. It is however very popular with locals. This is a good sign, as if locals keep coming back, they must be doing something right. They have a good menu of traditional Spanish dishes, available both as full plate and 1/2 size 1/2 price tapas dishes. All the food we saw being served looked good quality and generous portions.

The staff don't speak as fluent English as some of the tourist restaurants, but we have always been able to get by.

We have our meals provided in our hotel package, but we have always found it a very handy, and reasonably priced, stop for a cold drink in that part of town. And its nice to escape the crowds sometimes.
