Description: Tiny and cozy restaurant, located inside a peculiar house. Our food is fresh, varied, respectful... with our tradition and the products we carefully select. We don't like labels much. We don't claim to be a gastronomic top restaurant, nor solely a traditional one. We just do what we like and how we like it to be done, with passion and trying always to attend all the small details. We are proud to think that we've created a small food place,, intimate, relaxed, where you can have a good time, a nice meal, even a date... but above all, a place where you feel comfy, like at home, like our special guests...

Went based upon the recommendation of a local. From the outside we'd probably not have gone in as it didn't look too special. We were wrong, it is very special indeed. The food was outstanding. In the 3 course menu at 20€ a bottle of wine was included for the two of us as was the water. We were the only non Catalans so it seems not yet to have been 'discovered'.
The same menu is available at lunchtime for 17€. Do yourself a favour....you won't regret.

Begur's market of restaurants is highly competitive, in this context the 20€ menu is most probaly at present the best value in town. Excellent dinner for this prize. The house wine not at the same level that the kitchen.

We had called in a few weeks back to find that they did not open in the evenings off-season. In the area again, we booked for a Sunday lunch on 23 Oct. Five of us were treated to a super menu del dia - three courses, wine and extras came to 114 euros. Home made cooking; super - and very patient - service from the waitress.

My husband and I were lucky enough to go to Turandot on a recommendation from our hotel. It was a Wednesday night, and there was only one other family in the dining room, while up the street, the restaurants were jam-packed. Boy are people missing out! The food is all locally-sourced and fresh but with innovative preparations and presentations. I had the market fish of the day, which was turbot, and my husband had the most delicous cassoulet of his life. My mouth waters when I think about that fish and the vegetables that were served with it -- so simple but so delicious! The woman who was our server was so sweet...she obviously really loved food and wine, and we enjoyed our conversation with her. The icing on the cake was after the meal, when we asked about the cost of getting a cab back to our hotel, she returned to our table with an offer from the chef to give us a ride back! He and his wife were so gracious. And I'm so glad they gave us a lift, because that walk down the road would have been pretty scary. This place is a true hidden gem!
