Nice place, a hidden gem. The food was nothing special, you'll get better food elsewhere. And it's well overpriced. Not worth the money. But a trip to l'Aiguafreda is recommended.

Maybe we caught a bad night, but I was not impressed by the food. The grilled fish was excellent, however the starters and potato side dish were below standard for the prices they charge. The garden and location are worth the trip though.

Wonderful out of the way restaurant out at Aiquafredda/Cap Sa Sal area in Begur at Hostal Sa Rascassa which serves fabulous whole fish from Costa Brava seas -- quite a few choices! Iberian pork is cooked in an encasement of some sort which lends wonderful flavor to the pork when it is served. If you are from U.S. try this... More

Had a great experience in this restaurant. A bit pricey, but worth every penny. We had the chuleton stake, which was one if the best I ever had. The fake cheesecake was also great. Overall, great location and great food, so highly recommend.

We had a delicious meal in this most perfect setting! One of the best on our weeklong trip to Barcelona and Costa Brava. Our one hour drive to Sa Rascassa from Girona was well worth it! Excellent wine and the freshest fish!

Highly recommended for outstanding food and wine. We had the Tuna tartare and tomato and tuna salad. Then the Rascassa (scorpion) fish. We had a strong oak white wine recommended by the manager. Beautiful setting. Cheesecake was top quality but the panna cotta was disappointing. Would go back for sure.

We have had dinner here for already three times in our holiday. Simply because it is an amazing experience; friendly staff, to-die-for-food and the brilliant setting in the garden. When in Begur or close to, a must go!

Excellent in every way - relaxing setting in an outdoor courtyard garden in the shade of trees, sunshine, blue skies and the occasional sea breeze. Very charming and professional yet friendly staff. And really delicious food - tasty starters = chicken croquettes, goat's cheese salad, Parmesan/rocket/Iberico ham salad all faultless; mains = robust, rustic and filling "fish rice" (seafood and...

Great seafood in a romantic garden, which will for always stay on your mind as one of the best meals in your life. The tuna is famous, but you can't go wrong with any of the choices. Make sure to have room for dessert also!
