Following the recommendations here in TA we had our first lunch of our holidays here. Absolutely amazing food! I don't give them 5 stars because we had to ask several times for our drinks, coffees, water and finally the bill. It was because the restaurant was full and it is understandable but I think a better organisation of the waiters/tables... More

The only restaurant open 24/7 and very welcome on a cold winter evening. You don't have to go for the expensive fish courses-the starters and tapas are a meal in themselves. We shared gambas in batter (a dozen giant prawns for €10) and a dish of iberico ham,eggs and sautéed potatoes and fried onions - an enormous dish,enough for 2.... More

My wife and I were on a tour of Catalunya (Spanish, French and Andorra) and finished up in Tossa de Mar, not a place I was too keen on. An Anglo-Spanish (Catalan speaking) acquaintance, unprompted suggested that if we wanted to eat out the "El Rincon de Galicia" was excellent. He often took his family there when they were in...

The place was packed with Spaniards. They had tables set outside and every table was full with everything from large families to just couples. We had to wait a bit for a table to open up and it was well worth the wait. Probably the best meal we had in Tossa. Lots of seafood and rice dishes, interesting starters and... More

Went here as it had a few good reviews and it was 2 minutes from our apartment. Really wish we hadn't bothered! Sat at a table as the restaurant was basically empty only to be moved as it was 'reserved' when it actually had no sign and other tables did. We were eventually seated and given menus then left for... More

Located inland from the main part of Tossa. Well worth seeking out. It's near the Dia supermarket alongside the canal. This is a genuine Spanish café, totally authentic with everything just like it is in non-tourist inland Spanish towns. Rustic and charming, popular with locals as much as with tourists. There's an outside area which is popular with smokers. Inside... More

We had the most delicious food here. Apparently renowned for its pulpo al Gallega (octopus Galician style) which was delicious, as was the calamari, sea bass, sole and lamb (both grilled and baked). Our mains came with lovely roasted vegetables and potatoes. Friendly staff. Nice wines. Large portions. Cannot fault it. Ate here more than once.

Here I found the best beer in Tossa, as they have a big built in beer barrel which is filled up every day with fresh Galician Beer. The steak, the chipirones and patatas bravas are excellent. Also fish dishes are fresh and tasty. If you are looking for a place where also the locals go and which is not fancy,... More

Huge portions, so would suggest you order starters first, then if you're still hungry order more. I ordered a small tomato and onion salad as a starter and it was more than enough for two of us, with lots left over. Solomillo was fantastic
