Es Dofi is a popular family restaurant situated on the beach front in Tamariu. Outdoor seating is in great demand so book a table in advance. A group of us had 2 very relaxing lunches here. The staff never stop but service was excellent and the quality of the various seafood selections was good. With a fair bit of wine and beer, the cost per person was around €25.
Recommended.

We didn't expect to glunch in a 5-stars Excelsior...but to a simple nice fish restaurant on the romantic small beach of Tamariu. off season was perfect, not too crowded, nice smell, fresh fish, moderate prices. And the sea in front of us. Maybe a better "smiley" service could be offered, but it can depend on the fact some of the staff are not Spanish and already makes and effort in speaking foreign languages. Besides there were quite many tables to be quickly attended to. The white wine was good, my "calamari a la romana" and my husband's "sepias" well cooked and fresh (I'm a chef too). The owner is friendly and attentive both to the clients and to his staff. Clean toilets too, which is sometimes rare in similar beach restaurants.This memory will stay in our minds for a long time.

Bottom line: there are 2 places to eat in Tamariu that are worth reviewing, the Hotel Tamariu, which is perfectly OK, and Es Dofi, the last place round on the left-hand side (looking out to the sea) which is, actually, the best place to eat in the town.

Which is why it's packed out every night.

The also-rans have plenty of vacancies, so go there if you have your doubts.

We had a nice, simple meal here. The place was packed but we snagged a table right at the front. Salads were fresh and good and we enjoyed a fried calamari. Not sure what the complaints are about.
