I enjoy the food there, it is not a touristic place with lot of options to try and all of them were nice. Also there is an option for s complete menu for a good price that includes three plates. But if I could suggest I will go for the tapas so you can try different plates and flavors. Very... More

Great restaurant, with a bit of a bistro feel at the edge of Vila seca. Wide variety and selection on the menu & all the food we have was top notch (pork medallions, quesadillas etc). Unfortunately they were out of crema catalana, so we will definitely be back!

We visited here 2 nights in a row because we loved it so much. The waitress on the first night was very helpful and really friendly. There was enough vegetarian options also - the fried aubergines with honey were to die for and the goats cheese balls were wonderful! The portions are big so we only needed 3/4 tapas between...

Turned up here too early to eat at 7.30 but had a relaxing drink whilst we waited for 8pm serving. Very popular with locals and the food was excellent. Best pizza we have ever had and two tapas dishes were great. Good value but make sure your Spanish is up to scratch as they don't speak much English.

Local restaurant, always packed, which says it all! Good variety of some quite original dishes, including excellent pizzas. Great menus del dia. Good family restaurant, though sometimes a bit noisy. Good value.

This is a great little restaurant once you find it. The food is great and there is such a large menu to suit all tastes. Sunday lunchtime is a bit manic but they have enough very competent staff that are well able to cope. The food is very good and well cooked and even when resaurant is heaving the wait... More
