we wanted to go to the very famous fish restaurant Casa Ramón, which is right opposite this one. It was full. There were plenty of tables in Lea Forgaxes. Now we know why! The service wasn't terrible but the waiter was breathing on our necks...More

My partner and I dropped in, on a Saturday afternoon around 2pm. All the tables were taken, and plenty of locals - usually a good sign!! The location is great, the food is excellent and reasonably priced, the service however is DISGRACEFUL! Waiting staff can't...More

Six colleagues stopped in the square at this establishment on July 5, 2017 after a city tour to share coffee and conversation. One in our party had purchased a locally-made pastry with the idea of each having the chance to taste the local fare as...More

The only reason to visit here is the location ( but there are at least 2 other bars in the same square ) and the amazingly appalling service ! It's like being served by a silent basil fawlty . We saw him offend customers who...More

Contrary to many of the negative reviews here, our party of 5 thoroughly enjoyed the food and service at Casa de Comidas Les Forgaxes. We feasted on abundant plates of grilled vegetables, calamari, and cuttlefish. Our waiter surprised us with a free offering of chorizo...More

We got the impression that the management was not treating the staff well, and it trickled down, or rather, cascaded down, to the customers. Zero attention from servers. Food was below par and we were served a plate of fish that was clearly past expiration.

The food, for what is it, is very expensive (having said that, the razor clams were worth it) but the patatas aioli... Oh my God. If you trawl the city (or even the whole region) searching for great patatas aioli, look no further than this...More

The food was subpar and the service was horrible at Les Forgaxes. The server not only brought out food that we didn't order he made us pay for it.
