We celebrated my in-laws' 40th wedding anniversary with Sunday lunch at La Cucanya. We hadn't let them know we were coming with a baby stroller - they accomodated no problem, at a window table for 5+1. The food was delicious: we took the season menu with wine pairing (maridaje), our in laws took the base menu. The seafood was especially good. A great selection of wines from the region (Penedés) and Ribera del Duero and Galicia. But the dessert cart deserves a special remark: out of this world. There are like 15 choices and it's very hard to make up your mind. We all tried different things to taste a variety, yummmy! The bill was like 50 euros apiece, with coffees and "chupitos" and beverages, very reasonable given the quality of the meal and the setting. This is a family business run with love. They even put a cake with the "40" sign candles, took a picture of my in-laws with their grandson and then handed the printed photo when we left. Quite a detail.

Over a rock above the sea, the place is impressive. You can see the sunset from here.
You can find almost any kind of Catalan or Italian cuisine and the service is quite good.
But, is a huge restaurant, specialized in weddings, requires a renewal. The food is average, but pricy. The access is 2 miles from the city center, you must drive by a narrow road.

Stayed in one of the nearby apartments rented by one of the owners of the restaurant so we felt we needed to do one lunch there. Worth it. We did the price fixe menu and enjoyed the best of everything. Wine was very reasonable and an excellent selection of quality local and imported wines. First true gourmet experience with our two year old that went well since they had crayons and an accessible childrens play area. Did I mention location, absolutely beautiful and relaxing.
