Since Origens took ownership of this restaurant in the latter part of 2016, our family have eaten there around 5 times and each meal has been great. They have a great italian menu with various pastas and home made pizzas, but also offer alternative meals to Italian food as well. This is the new sister restaurant to the very well... More

We went to this restaurant on Boxing Day although hadn't booked, we were lucky and they had a table for two. The only menu available was the special one and it was superb. Snacks to start, bouche de chef, choice of starters, main and desserts - all of which were excellent, wine, water and coffee all included for 28 euros... More

Great food with a very creative approach. The menu of the day offers fantastic value for money. Attentive and friendly service, great buzzy atmosphere and a lovely sea view. Don't fail to visit this restaurant, you will not be disappointed, but make sure you book.

We went with friends for Sunday lunch and were very satisfied by the choices and quality of the food. Service was good and the ambiance very pleasant with nice sea views (we sat in the window). Very good value for money and a very reliable restaurant - one of the best in L'Escala.

Had a three course lunch meal close to Michelin Star standards, with wine and an aperitife, all for fifteen euros, unbelievable? Well it's true, amazing food at stupidly cheap prices, don't know how they do it but you won't find me complaining, will be back for more asap.

The original Origens Restaurant below the Rallye Hotel is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the option of 2 menus of the day, 1 at 15euros and one at 18euros both are fantastic value for money and offer a large choice of either fish, meat or veggie meals. The new Origens Platja in the old town alongside the waters... More

A return visit for the fixed price menu which included a drink and bread. Several choices for each course all superbly presented. Very tasty food. A la Carte also looked super. Excellent service though we did ask for more time between main and dessert. Great views over the sea as well.
