“A wonderful and intriguing feast”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

While visiting Costa Brava in Spain, we had lunch at this wonderful, quaint restaurant that specializes in salted cod. I was reluctant to try it until I was told that it is soaked for 24 hours to remove the excess salt and then prepared in a variety of different ways. The three of us shared about 6 or more different cod dishes, among other things, and each of them were superb! The wine list was extensive as well. There were many other choices for those who are not cod fans, but I would bet you'd become one after a visit here. The church across the road adds to the lovely setting. The town of Monells is very quaint with a beautiful village square. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

“Fish wonderful fish”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

We loved all the food and the excellent service and help for 4 weary hot cyclists.
Expensive but then again have never tasted so many types of cod cooked different ways. The children loved their lunch as well (aged 9 and 14)

“Great meal”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The food is delicious, they have a lot of dishes with cod and also a grill in the summer. The place is charming and the town of Monells is very beautiful.

“Wonderful meal in a beautiful location”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

An extremely talented chef created excellent meals for us, in Catalan style. I heard guests graciously served in English, French and Catalan. A lovely setting in a village worth exploring.

Each dish was explained and was delicious. An incredibly reasonable meal.
Highly recommended.
