“Nothing Short of Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

Just back from a truly outstanding evening meal! Vicus was one of several restaurants on a list provided by the organizer of our visit to Pals, with a description that included the words "upscale gourmet". We're 10 days into a two week trip in Spain that has included stays at several Relais et Chateau establishments. So, to say that we enjoyed far and away the best meal of the holiday at Vicus is no small statement. Every aspect of dinner was perfect. The food -- all three courses -- had wonderful flavour combinations, was beautifully prepared, and tasted divine. This was matched by the subtle blend of modern and lovingly-restored antique components of the decor, to say nothing of the attentive, friendly service from the owner. No doubt this will stand out as one of the highlights of our trip.

“Excellent dinner at Vicus!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

Went to Vicus during my last trip to the most beautiful place of Catalonia, La Costa Brava.
Vicus is Highly recommended for its food, service and friendly attitude. A true "must go" if you travel to that region and want to check the best of their "cuisine".

Congratulations for your hard work and I hope I will come back again on summer!

We had a great lunch at Vicus.
The menu featured local and seasonal ingredients that were prepared creatively and tasted wonderful. The setting was very tasteful and the husband/wife owners have created a lovely spot to have a wonderful meal. We will go back!

“Stunning, fresh, reasonably priced food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

We stumbled on this restaurant while on holiday in the Costa Brava and discovered that it had only been open for a month. We were so impressed with our lunch that we returned on two more occasions. The stand-out meal for me was the tuna tartare. I loved it. We got chatting to the owners, Gerard and his wife who both speak impeccable English. We were very impressed with their enthusiasm and commitment to this restaurant. The interior is just as stunning as the food and obviously a lot of time and thought has gone into both. I don't know when we will be back in Spain, but when we return, Vicus will be at the top of the list.
