Great service. Awesome food. Loved my stay there. One of my favorite memories of Spain was in that little town.

This restaurant specialises in fish – meat is available, but this defeats the object – tho’ there are a variety of starters prepared in the conventional kitchen. Fish eaters are presented with examples of the catch of the day (raw), with an explanation of their eating quality and cost, to make their choice. The chosen fish are then cooked in... More

This was a really fun local place with very fresh fish. My favorite part was that they bring the fish raw to the table, explain everything, and cleans them and cook them in the oven within same small dining space. Can't get much fresher and local than that! Everything we had we enjoyed, I'm not much of a fish person... More

Nice fish restaurant (they also have meat in their menu if you fancy) where the waiter will show you the real fish they have and explain you the main characteristics so you can make an informed decision on your lunch. A bit of waiting time between appetizers and main because our fish was big so it needed it´s time in... More

Poor service, grumpy chef, no atmosphere, way too expensive for quality of cooking....the wood oven looks authentic but the resulting dishes surprisingly average( baked single fish 40 euros)

Small, rustic restaurant making great play of presenting today's fish and and cooking it front of house in a clay oven. Food was ok but quite expensive and not worthy of all the fanfare.

Small elegant restaurant in the centre of Begur. The fish cooked in a traditional wood oven. My wife had fish, I had lamb cutlets, both were perfectly cooked and presented.Staff are knowledgeable and helpful. The fish is sold by weight and a touch expensive, but the lamb cutlets were great value. Well worth it for a lovely evening.

So far, the yummiest meal in Spain. It looks like a hole in the wall, but the fish was delicious, partly because it is super fresh (whatever is caught that day) and partly because they stuff it with potatoe, onions, and some tomato, with wine, and seal it before cooking it in an oak oven. So the whole thing is... More

On the heart of the old town of Begur, you'll find one of the oldest restaurants on the area, where we offer you the opportunity of choosing very fresh fishes from the nearest coast of Begur and we'll cook it in front of you in a old wood oven. We also have homemade salads made ​​with local products and other delicacies like octopus or squid grilled that certainly with our desserts and an interesting wine list will bring you an unforgettable experience. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
