Before being seated we walked along the balcony for a breathtaking view of the Costa Brava. Then we lunched, starting at about 2:30, and, even though we were pressed for time, could not move from the table until 4:00. The meal was fantastic.

the view from the restaurant is breathtaking. Better book the table in advance if you wanna make sure to get a table in 1st row to the sea. The food is good and you'll find some original dishes.

This restaurant is located in the Sant Roc Hotel and over looks the town of Calella de Palafrugell. Beautiful at night. The food & service were great with lots of different seafood dishes along with duck, beef & pork. Do not miss the desserts.
