“Fun place”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

You can find this place on the beach promenade. They are open all day, but I would recommend to go there late evening, because the atmosphere feels very different then. Try goat cheese creme brûlée- fascinating dish! Nice mini hamburgers. Accomplish with "cupa de cava", and your evening is nicely set up;)

“A great family restaurant”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

What an amazing experience a value for money, lovely meal and the bonus being you are helping former street kids rebuild their lives with a career in hospitality. The staff were beautiful, loved the friends store next door, what a great way to spend your tourist dollar

“It's a good balance in a holiday area.”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This restaurant is In the middle of the boulevard of Plata d'Aro. It is a clear beacon at this beach with its purple accents and Thai wood sculptures. This restaurant has a good terrace and the atmosphere is good so it is picture perfect. The food and the drinks are not the best ever. Well, are you looking for that in a touristic place like Plata d'Aro and would the dutch owner survive with a high culinary menu? I don't think so! For me this is a good restaurant in a good holiday area, it's in balance.

“best place to eat near the sea, except on Wednesday”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Friends has been a mainstay now for a few years. The food is excellent and the staff pretty friendly. On Wednesdays they have live music, but this is not always up to standard. It does draw extra people, but unfortunately that also means you have to wait longer to be seated and be served. In fact we were turned away because we were only two and they only had a 4 person table open, which they didn't want to give to us. I found that unfortunate as we had been there so often before. On other nights, we always enjoyed eating or drinking there

“Most wellcoming place at the Costa Brava”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

The place looks terrific and inviting with the nice purple and white colours, lovely lounge seats, Claudia, the owner, chats in every possible language with the guests and making everyone feeling wellcome. We have sat here daily for café latte's, great cheese cakes and apple crumbles, smoothies, and delicious lunches. There is a good variation of all kind of sandwiches, typical catalan food, salads, hot meals, as well as tapas. The waiters and waitresses are very friendly, Great place to be and we will certainly come back
