We were in Salou for a week to celebrate my wife’s birthday, after 5 days of all-inclusive I wanted to treat her to a nice meal out. After looking on trip advisor I managed to find Xantar, it was a short walk from out hotel and had good reviews. I popped in on my own to book and to ask... More

Went for husbands birthday, chosen because of trip advisor reviews. Approached by a young lady after we had been looking at the menu outside for 5 or so mins, she was very helpful without being at all pushy. The waiter was very good at explaining the different set menus (we went on a Sunday when there is a special rice... More

Ate here as a family one midweek night in October. The welcome and service from John was great throughout, looking after our 5 year old daughter especially well. She was not eating much so John kept her entertained (quiet) with some books and paper. For starters the wife had what I believe was a catalunyan pizza, and I had the... More

I had duck foie gras, veal Rossini and pancakes with ice cream, cream and nuts, an amuse bouche, bread a bottle of wine and a... More

I am a fussy eater so although I could see the set menu was good value I worried about the options available..I was wrong! The options were fantastic, even for someone like myself. I had the local type pizza (bit fancier) to start, steak for my main and the cheese cake for dessert. They were all absolutely fantastic!!! Both me... More

Great location, great service, amazing food. The main aspect which made Xantar a step above the rest was the friendly, helpful staff. €30 for a set menu (includes all courses from full menu and more!!!) that also includes a bottle of wine and a bottle water as well as bread. Really topped off what was a great holiday!
