We sat inside was we were tired. Be careful our first table had little chairs close to the floor and I had to move to a tall table with real chairs. Once we got settled in we ordered a whole fish which was very good. We had it with fries and a salad and were very pleased with our choice.... More

Is a good place for having tapas, burgers or fish. Have to choose well your dishes cause there are a lot of dishes! There are very good dishes and dishes that are not on the restaurant's line. After all also you have to be VERY CAREFULLY with the tarrace, cause just in front of the l'Estable there is a terrace... More

We took a late afternoon drive for a short visit to Spain. We visited the home of Salvador Dali - catching it just before the tours were closed. Afterwards, we drove around to enjoy the surrounding beautiful nature park before the sunset. We decided to have an early dinner in Cadaque before returning to our hotel in Couliere. Our 'guide'...

This is a good choice amongst the throng of seaside restaurants/bars in Cadaques. My wife who is a connoisseur of Polvo á Feira (Galician style octopus) found theirs to be good enough for a repeat visit the next day. The seafood options were all tasty and did not disappoint. Decent house wine too.

This is our go to place for family lunch/tapas/dinner. The staff is extraordinarily friendly (our one-year-old is in love with the waitress), the food is fine, the sangria is sweet and there's a perfect view of the bay. What more can you ask for on a summer day by the sea?

Been there for dinner. The service is non existant to the point where I thought the waiters worked for another bar! Rude and un welcoming. The food was horrible and without taste. A big disapointment

We had a great tapas lunch with many kids and I must say that this was one of the best tapas I have had for a long time. The view from the terrace made it perfect. It was a little windy but this didn't matter at all. The service was also fast and good. I fully recommend this place!

After sitting for a while at the main beach we came over to L'Estable for the view to start with but ended-up sitting for maybe 2 or 3 hours trying all the different foods we could manage and a great bottle of wine to go with it. Even if you're only in Cadaques for an hour or so make sure... More
