This was our first visit following a recommendation - we were delighted! The restaurant is secluded and quiet but charming. The staff were very friendly and the food was outstanding! We will definitely return.

Excellent and creative menu, with a sound catalan and traditional culinary base on most dishes.service and treat was great, with Mary at front of restaurant. Waiter was excellent and the cooker, Lou, too.

We went here again a few weeks ago for the 3rd time. We had wonderful fish and seafood, pasta and wine. The menu at 25 euros is great value with drinks and dessert included. The major draw here though is the outside garden space and the people who run it, who remembered us from the year before and are welcoming... More

After reading most other reviews we were expecting something special, especially for the menu price of €23. The menu was limited and more than half of the dishes incurred a supplement.

This was a return visit after our 2013 experience. We were not disappointed! Sardines as main course on menu del dia for my wife were perfect, and I had a Catalan sausage, also brilliant. Our chocolate desserts were exceptional. Wine glasses were generous. We will return again on our next visit.
