Excellent food, original, tasty and very good service. We had the lunch menu with 3 tapas each and a delicious dessert. Creative ways of cooking eggplant and mackrel. The presentation is a pleasure for the eye and the taste is an experience. Warm recommendation.

We enter into this restaurant totally by chance. It was an excellent surprise: food is great and the recommended wine was corresponding to our taste

We have wanted to try Vicus for ages and it didn’t disappoint. Very elegant surroundings with several small dining rooms so feels quite intimate yet relaxed . We chose the rice menu but could have chosen the tasting menu or the a la carte. To...start , we shared the mussels and pickles, followed by the llangoniza croquetas - superb ! Followed by local rice with pork ribs and porcini mushrooms . Dark and earthy , full of flavour and perfect for an autumnal afternoon. We drank a decent medium bodied organic local red and finished with a lemon dessert. The emphasis is on locally sourced slow food. Service was attentive and always a big plus from me is that they do not top up the wine glass every 5 minutes which annoys the hell out of me ! Some say this place deserves a Michelin star and I would tend to agree.More

We visited Vicus during our stay on the beach in Pals. The food had spectacular presentation and was delicious. They will get Michelin star in no time. The service was very attentive and friendly towards us and our two kids. They were so accommodating to...let us have tasting menu while kids had a la carte meal. Excellent all around, can’t wait to be back!More

Excellent food, good service and very good advice for wine. The rice was delicious, and one of the best tarte tatin I have ever eaten.

We always come back and enjoy classics or new dishes in the menu. Recently we felt in love with fresh fish plates, kind of Arabic style meat dishes, great Gazpacho and so on ... Always friendly, nice service and location. With good and reasonable priced...local wines.More

Located in a small town of Pals, but with this quality wouldn't be out of place anywhere. We had lunch menu and it was delicious and very carefully presented, starting from 9 plump olives stuffed with anchovis served in a neat grid on a white...plate. The lunch menu was a selection of small dishes, and all of them were delicious - the brioche with sobrassada, mmm... The wines were very good as well (we asked for a white and it was great, mineral and full-bodied, served in just the right temperature for this warm day). We asked for a quick service as we were in a hurry, and they orchestrated the whole meal so perfectly that we were able to leave exactly on time. Altogether, a great experience and to me this place deserves a star (you know which one!), considering the combination of service, food, wines and comfortable setting.More

In Pals you drive straight to this great restaurant. The owners are very interested and the food is very good. Private parking and rooms are also available. A must if you like gastronomic food

Pals is one of the medieval towns behind the beaches of the Costa Brava. It's worth a visit - but this restaurant is not to be missed! If you're anywhere in the area, on the coast or nearby - add this place to your must...visits! We had a fabulous long lunch - we tried most of the starters, to share. And also main courses.. then the desserts... it was all, without exception, excellent! The service was attentive and informative - explaining the foods, the accompanying wines and making recommendations. We'll definitely be going back!More

This was our second visit, having 1st enjoyed 7 years ago when on holiday there, shortly after it first opened. The standard is excellent. Don’t miss out by not visiting.
