We really liked this restaurant, it has a lovely atmosphere especially on a cold windy night. We imagine it would also be lovely on a hot and sultry night with the fans and doors open to the balcony especially if you are lucky enough to get a table on the balcony. The food is excellent and the service friendly and helpful. The only down is that it is slightly more expensive than other restaurants in Cadaques but we only tried two and this was the one we liked best despite paying a little more.

When your waiter brings a platter of several varieties of fresh fish for you to choose from, you can't go wrong. Reservations are a must. One of the best meals I had while traveling in Spain!

Tucked away at the end of a narrow lane, Es Balconet has an intimate, warm ambience. I would describe the menu as Catalan fusion, with unique variations on local cuisine. Also a very good wine list.

We arrived early (10 minutes before they opened) and were able to get a table for two on the tiny balcony. The atmosphere of the place was wonderful. We ordered the suquet menu. Both of us had the tuna carpaccio, and I loved the use of shaved nuts with the flavor of the tuna. The suquet was plentiful... so much food for the two of us. The broth was the best part. We soaked it up with some extra bread. The waitress was lovely and very helpful. I would recommend this place!

This great restaurant in one of the most scenic villages offer something that you rarely find when you search in touristic areas. Originality and a genuine atmosphere. We enjoyed a great paella and nice wine but you could also get fresh fish from the dish. Quality!
