“Horrible Chinese”
Review of Pekin

Restaurant details
Reviewed July 18, 2016

Had a meal here last week and even if I look past the poor service, the forgotten order, the over filled starter plate leaking all over the table - I can't look past the quality of the food (or lack thereof).

I know on holiday we Brits let our standards slide a bit and just smile and say "yes that was lovely thanks" but I couldn't have done that here.

The main courses ordered by my wife and I were gloopy and tasteless with a poor quality of meat. My Vietnamese spring roll I'm sure was just dog food.

I'm not one to just bad mouth a place on tripadviser but I feel this place deserves a poor comment or two. On reflection we did wonder at the time why other customers seemed a bit unhappy but clearly they had simply received their food before us.

Avoid

I have been to this restaurant twice now and it was recommended by some friends who have been going there for years.

The staff are friendly and nice and the service is very good.

I highly recommend the menu for six people at a cost of E8.50 per head - it is very good value and excellent quality - the pekin duck is to die for - Lots of good quality food to eat and I guarantee you will not go home hungry!!

The owner also tells me they are open from lunchtime all the way through to 9.00

Empuriabrava has 4 Chinese restaurants. We found out that Pekin should be the best one. Despite the fried starters the 6 persons special menue turned out to be very nice, both from quality and quantity. It's more than enough for 5 adults and three kids. The staff is very, very friendly and charming.

Visited in Jan 2015 so it was very quiet... But I can honestly say that this place is fantastic. Extremely friendly staff (dressed in traditional Chinese attire) serving top notch, quality Chinese food at an unbelievably cheap price... If your in Empuriabrava and you like Chinese food, you have simply GOT TO visit the Pekin.

Good food for a cheap price, the best chinese restaurant for me in Empuriabrava in 2013.
3 course lunch for € 7,50 !
Or a la carte, dim sum, everything is very good.
