No 1 rated on TA. We went once for Sunday lunch. No set menu, a la carte only. Food good but expensive compared to other restaurants, our most expensive meal in 8 days eating out every day. In our view, there is better value and cooking elsewhere in L'Estartit.

This was our fourth visit in two years to N’Gruna and the food is still fantastic. Last week we had the clams and the chicken wings starters and the tuna and the lamb mains, and last night we had the tuna tartare starter and duck and the octopus mains.

The chef manages to put a twist on old favourites and then also surprise with new and exciting flavours.

The octopus was amazingly firm but tender with a slightly chargrilled edge, on a base of purple potato mash and a spicy aioli. Stunning to look at too.

The tuna tartare was a delicious mound of melt-in-the-mouth raw tuna with tangy onion and vinaigrette balanced with what was either fig or sultana pieces, contrasted with crispy toast strips.

I’ve had the clam starter twice. Deliciously tiny clams with a buttery vermouth sauce.

We finished with the dessert special - banana tarte Tatin with cinnamon ice-cream. Just divine!!

The staff are always polite and knowledgeable and the menu exciting.

Love it and will return again and again.

Great meal , had clams and a burger, the only place in our 2 week stay that all the family enjoyed , and a different menu to all the others which were pretty much the same tourist menus. Nice and friendly staff, very good service and reasonable prices.

We have eaten here twice during our stay and wow what a treat. We had the Menu del dia for lunch which was €15 for 3 courses including a drink (some dishes had a €3 supplement). Our party had the Artichoke & Iberian Jamon salad, an Octopus starter which were lovely. We all had the beef cheek and cuttlefish main course which we all agreed was sublime. Although desserts are not our thing they were also tasty. The waitress was lovely and very helpfully.

We returned for dinner a few days later and ate from the main menu and again were in for a treat. Amongst the highlights were the Squid and ink Croquettes and Wing clams. The chicken burger with Brie, spinach and caramelised onions was also delicious and a departure from the norm.

All the staff were again lovely, as the restaurant filled up there was a great atmosphere. I’m not sure what the previous reviewer was on about calling the decor drab. It’s modern sure but done in great taste. We cannot wait to return.

Nice place to eat. Quality food at a good price. Very helpful staff who know what they are serving. Although there are many other things to chose and I normally don't have them, the Burgers are recommended.
