Beach front restaurant that bucks the trend of ripping off tourists with poor food and high prices. Tapas range is extensive with nice additions such as the goats cheese medallions and lovely slow cooked pork. The balcony can be booked in the evening and gives amazing views of the beach and out to sea. Main courses are reasonable and salads are probably worth sharing. Waiting staff are very busy but give great friendly service, well worth a visit.

Came here after flying into Girona; just the tonic after a tiresome flight. Staff were friendly, helpful and more than happy to accommodate three Brits finding their bearings. We went for the seafood tapas and was not disappointed. With the effort and somewhere we will pop back to during our break.

Sit outside and enjoy the view across the town beach while you eat some really good tapas. We tried the fish tapas selection plus patatas bravas (what else) and din't think there would be enough to eat, we were wrong. Very generous portions and the whitebait was fantastic. Excellent service and a good people watching spot!

During the last years, we have had dinner here several times. Every time the service is fast and very friendly, the food always good. A wide range of tapas, freshly prepared and good. Prices are very reasonable. Location is great, from the terrace a great view over the little beach and the bay. Highly recommended.
