A lovely restaurant facing on a small square by the sea front. We had an excellent lobster paella and craft beer at a very reasonable price. Staff were very pleasant and friendly and we had a very enjoyable evening and would certainly return.

This restaurant is family-owned (multi-generational). Two couples shared a whole fish cooked to perfection. Rafael, one of the owners, provided exceptional and charming service. All wines are in-house (they own a winery) and the recommended wine was excellent. Truly a wonderful evening.

This was the last dinner we had during our one week hike along the Catalan coast. And it was definitely the best. Simple but very well-tasting dishes from start to finish; dishes you did not want to end. Pleasantly and effectively served, in nice atmosphere....More

The restaurant was recommended for the quality of its fishes. I took the big grilled fishes dish and it was just ravishing. All different fishes cooked to the perfection. Plus a good wine advised by the son of Rafa and the experience was just great!

This restaurant is excellent. The fish was wonderful. The service was on top of everything. We spent a delightful evening. It's to recommend, no doubt. Price very reasonable. They have their own vineyards and own olive oil.
