We had the mixed salad, ordered one each but easily big enough to share. Fabulous grilled lobster and good wine. Not the cheapest restaurant but good quality food.

We were on route to another restaurant but the restaurant in question was empty! It was one of the few places that seemed busy and we could see why. Lovely meal, attentive staff and lovely view...will visit again :)

One of the objectives of our holiday was to have a fresh lobster, which did not disappoint. Lovely view of the illuminated castle at night. Nice sized portions, quality food and wine. Reasonable cost too.

Tourist menu dishes are well prepared and tasty offered in an interessanting variety. Visited the Minverva two times in the evening and enjoyed the kind and friendly service. Unfortunately one grilled salmon wasn't well done, it came back well done, but the vegetables were cold then.

Had a family lunch here last week on a day out in Tossa De Mar. Excellent food, set menu was great value for money, lots of choices. Food was delicious. Fabulous setting overlooking the beach & the sea. Staff friendly, very good with the 2 grand daughters. Highly recommend for an authentic Spanish meal - great paella!

We stopped in here for a late lunch after the beach and were not disappointed. Service was good, not much to say about that. The dishes are the usual Mediterranean Tapas but I found them to be tastier than other places I have visited. Great view of the castle and the beach. Had the razor clams, oysters, mussels, grilled squid,... More

Amazing place for seafood in Tossa de Mar, Costa Brava. Fresh fish and great value for money just in front of the sea. Typical Catalan Mediterranean food.
