Friendly welcome and efficient service. The set menu was very good and the wine list had a good selection at reasonable prices. The food was very tasty - we went twice during our week in Calafell

Vell Papiol is a very nice fish restaurant just behind the seaside promenade in town. The staff made every effort to communicate, but it was tougher here than else where. The restaurant is very sophisticated for this area, and well designed. It is very popular...More

Excellent food and service in a relaxed, elegant atmosphere. Quite expensive, but worth it. Offers both lunch and dinner service.
