Good food quality but with quite high prices. The service is very good and people are very sympathic. Some dishes are quite expensive, making the Gaviota not the most competitive restaurant of Salou.

Nice restaurant and good food, though expensive. My critisism would be that the menu is confusing and difficult to order from. Help from the waiters was hindered because of the language barrier on both sides: we both spoke a little but not enough. I ordered a shrimp dish and got a lovely plate of about 10 shrimps but nothing else,... More

The service was nice, the food was ok. But the price is too high, and it is not worth it. We left with the feeling that it was not the value for food. Three adults and a child we paid 168€. ( two gaspachos, 3 plates and 3 deserts, wine and water.)

We turned up at lunch time with two sleeping children each in their own pram and were able to park them in a small children's play area the restaurant has to one side, with us sitting at the nearest table. The waiter also provided two small plates... More

Located in the heart of Costa Daurada, there is the most ancient and emblematic restaurant in Salou, founded in 1958 by Paquito and Fina.

Nowadays it is lead by the children of the founder couple and it continues preserving the essence of a familiar and friendly restaurant, where you can continue tasting genuine dishes from the Catalan cuisine such as 'zarzuela', some varieties of rice, meat or fish.

Its menu includes seasonal products of maximum quality, combined with a wide variety of wines, sparkling wines and liqueurs that make up one of the most important wine cellars of the restaurant services of the country
