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...

“Delightful Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We were on a search for the best pork in Spain since we had read so much about it. We were not disappointed!
We had a late lunch on a slow day for guests and were delighted with the wonderful service of Nicki and Lucas, the chef owner. They are good friends and their enthusiasm and hard work was very evident.
We had a very reasonably priced dry white wine, Raimat, which went very well with our meals. The 4 of us enjoyed the tomato, mozzarella and pesto salad, the truffled egg and the scallops. All presented beautifully and cooked expertly. My friend said that the scallops were cooked better than at home which is a fishing town in MA!!
We had the suckling pig which was outstanding-done in a light apricot fig sauce with a nice crusty skin with potatoes and baby onions.
Our friend had the Iberico surprise which was pork that had been sliced and was equally delicious.
The desserts were the best we have had so far in Spain! The cheesecake was served in a mason jar with crumbled brown sugar and fruit-enough for two. The coolant with ice cream was outrageously good, too.
If you have one place to eat while here Tourandot should be your choice.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were planning a dinner out in Begur and just as we parked our car at the very entrance of the town we decided to try the restaurant right across the street. It was beyond our expectations. From starter to dessert nothing was disappointing. Try the salad with strawberries and finish with the cheesecake!

“Excellent value dining in touristic area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

We chose Turandot based on Trip Advisor ratings and were not disappointed. For 23 euros, you get 3 delicious courses where in most tourist restaurants in Costa Brava the food is very mediocre. The suckling pig is well worth the 4.5 euro premium as it was cooked perfectly. Table wines at 2.50 a glass were also a bargain. Service was prompt, courteous and friendly.

“Brilliant place - charming on all counts...almost....I cant wait to return”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

It's not very often you can find a place and fall in love with it, its food, its service and its people so quickly! This little restaurant opened in March 2013 and has had rave reviews, and they are worthy. The young team who run Turandot are friendly, fun, and provide excellent service without being stuffy. Overall it's a charming place. Nice decor, simple, modern and fun. There's a lot of good things to say - the presentation of the food, the atmosphere they create, the relaxation, the ambiance...I could go on....all really good. And the value id extraordinary for what you will eat and experience. The wine list if lovely with some interesting and unusual local wines to try. All good. But there is one thing I didn't like....the food was served on cold plates and accordingly was not hot when it arrived. Overall this place is a gem. I would return again and again, but if you want 5 stars Turandot, heat the plates before you serve them to me next time please - then you'll get the missing star!
