We ate at " LA GRUTA " two days running & were totally amazed by the quality of the food. The whole experience was totally fabulous & we will be returning to sample more of what this restaurant has to offer.

“Amazing value at lunchtime”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We visited this restaurant whilst staying with friends in L'Escala. The Menu of the day is just 13.50 euros for 3 courses and is amazing value. There are about 5 choices for each course, we were delighted with our choices, they are 'Masterchef' style meals, such flavour and imagination, it is difficult to describe the presentation but wonderful to eat/taste. I would highly recommend this restaurant but you have to book, there are two sittings - we had 2.30.pm. Included in the price is a bottle of wine for 2, really good value!!

Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

The service is excellent and very professional.

Food is good and with a very nice presentation.

Maybe it is a litle bit expensive.

“Sorry to be adding yet another 5 stars!”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Thank you Trip Advisor for helping is find this reall little gem.My wife and I ate dinner there on a cold and blustery night last week, having got fed up with the food at our hotel.
The food was very creative but without being to pretentious. The Chef's touch with ingredients is very sure, and we would reccommend wholeheartedly.
I think we were the only non-French people in there, so the secret is obviously out.

“Best of the Best”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I've been fortunate to have eaten amazing food in amazing places,but I have yet to eat anything quite like the food at La Gruta. The food,ambiance and service are all outstanding. The Menu del Dia is not to be missed for price,quality and originality. Every course is beautifully prepared and presented,everything is prepared in house and the chef is generous with his Bearnaise sauce recipe and other tips. Without a doubt,my favorite restaurant. A remarkable 3 course meal,wine and water included for 13.50 euros...reservations aren't a bad idea
