We had a great dinner, food was excellent we had a beautiful view at the sea side,We finished the meal with a spectacular drink: Cremat for a cold evening. Cremat = a lot of rum, lemon, cinnamon, sugar and coffee and a lighter. Enjoy !!

We wanted a meal, and the staff were surly, and messed us about for ten minutes while trying to stick us in the worst table in an empty restaurant. I would not go unless you want arrogant locals to try to make your day unpleasant.

We tried to go to this restaurant with a family group. The attitude of the staff was extraordinarily rude and unaccommodating. My inpression was that they are not interested in the tourist trade and only want to serve locals. Avoid!

We stopped for a coffee mid morning. The place was nice, but the service was rather poor. With so many excellent places in Calella this one can be avoided (try La Garoina just beside it - so much more friendly)

Such a mistake! Negative reviews are correct. We had a horrible experience with unfriendly, rude staff. Bad energy! Avoid at all costs.

Restaurant in the heart of Costa Brava. On the beach, with a fantastic terrace overlooking Open since 1912 and still run by the same family, now in the fifth generation ahead. Mediterranean and proximity product kitchen with beautifully presented.

You can also enjoy taking a Cremat, burn ron specialty recipe inherited great-grandfather, on the terrace house, or the first drink of the night, mojitos, caipirinhas, combined ...
