“Total relaxation - excellent food and service”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

At the end of a busy week with family, my wife and I just needed to relax at a comfortable place, by the sea and have a good lunch.
The tables outside along the top of the wall overlooking the beach provide one of the best eating locations in Cadaques. Other restaurants have a sea view and maybe a more sophisticated terrace, but this place wins hands down if you get a table on the edge overlooking the water.
The welsome and service throughout were excellent. The selection of tapas (lmedia racion - larger portions that the tapa dishes served further south in Seville, for example0, is excellent and we chose a couple as starters to go with a bottle of house wine, then a second couple as main course and a final one because we couldn't resist. Everything was good. The price was very reasonable for an excellent meal - we didn't need to eat dinner as well that evening.

“Best view of Cadaques while eating good food.”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We happened upon E'Stable as we were walking around the bay. It was a lovely spot to kick back, have a few drinks and eat a tasty lunch. Putting our feet up on the low stone wall that curbs the seaside of the road, we lounged under shady umbrellas and basked in the beauty of Cadaques and the Mediterranean laid out before us. (And the staff was genuinely welcoming.)

“Tapas with a view”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Nice tapas, nice service, nice prices and great view!
We went with my partner and son for lunch a very hot day. The breeze from the sea was a nice welcome. We order several tapas, all of which were delicious. The waiter was very friendly and helpful and the service very quick.
A small advice: The sangria is excellent but very strong. Go easy when you are thirsty!

“great tapas”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We stopped here for dinner and were not disappointed. Good place to eat if you're just looking for a selection of simple but good tapas. It's a bit cramped inside but that's all part of the atmosphere I suppose.

“Ask for the whole fish fabulous”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

It's not on the menu, but if you like a fresh whole fish (yes head and tail too) this is the place. A local fisherman brings in one or two types of fish fresh off the boat daily. You have to ask, and then you are in for a treat. Cooked to perfection, served with a huge fresh salad and delicious fries. For 20 euros. Really good. And of course sitting right on the water looking at the bay, fishing boats, sunset !! Wonderful. This is a family run restaurant, and service is a group effort. And good service. Not much English spoken, but we got by with our minimal Spanish. This makes for a lovely experience.
