“Customer Disservice”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Extremely rude personnel disguised in I-am-cool, kinda hippie attire made us wait for a table standing for 45 minutes when there were plenty of free tables around. Tried to complain with the owner, the guy with bad attitude behind the bar: he just ignored us while laughing.

The food? just ok, nothing you may expect as per association with their unique location.
At every single moment they made sure we understood we were intruders, an annoyance they had to deal with and that we should be happy they were making us a favor in a bad manner.

Visiting Cap the Creus and avoiding this restaurant are both a must!

Note: this is about the restaurant, not the bar by the lighthouse.

“awesome, fresh fish”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We were here in July and enjoyed a cold beer with the freshest, best tasting fish of our trip to Spain and France. I have no idea what it was because the waiter didn't speak much English and didn't know how to translate the Spanish name of the fish for us. Who cares! It was delicious and caught that morning. He brought out a platter of fish for us to chose from and told us which he would prefer. It comes served whole on a bed of potatoes, which were very tasty, having soaked up the juices from the fish and spices. Very simple but delicious. My vegetarian daughter was happy with her pasta and appalled with the whole fishing sitting in the pan "looking at us".
The views are great. The service was okay.
I would definitely go here again as it was the best food of the trip.

“let down by tired staff”
Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

there was a gale blowing when we arrived and sat down to have a meal at this well recommended resto

we wanted grilled fresh fish and the waiter couldnt be bothered to explain what was on the menu. couldnt speak good english and told us he didn't know what the different fish were called in english....lots of pouting and sighing when we asked questions....didnt give a monkey about us...
when the food arrived it was fine, but we got a small fish between 2 of us and no one bothered to ask us was everything ok....very disappointed after all we heard about this resto...

“Restaurant Cap de Creus”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

After a morning hiking in Cap de Creus, nothing better than to sit down at this restaurant for a good meal. Had the Dorade, which was excellent. Friend had the Catalan Sausage which was also excellent.

“Genuine food, magnificient staff and view!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

The place is plain and rustic in a very nice Spanish way. We had lovely tapas followed by a perfectly cooked fresh fish. The view is just amazing and if you go here you should spend at least 4 hours just to sit, relax, drink, eat and talk. Do not miss it!
