It's a shame that some reviewers don't like this place. We have been coming here for over 30 years, and we still enjoy it. Admittedly the Patron isn't particularly sociable, but he keeps his eyes on all the tables and is quick to send across...More

The nonchalant waiting staff were passively disinterested and the food lacklustre. The lettuce was unwashed and the seafood gritty and unfresh. It's a shame Can Gelpi does the business it does with such a mediocre product; if this restaurant was located anywhere other than the...More

Very busy beachfront restaurant. Food ok and ambiance good but the service is a bit lacking. They are a bit industrial and are more expensive than others in the same area

We visited Costa Brava and ate here - it was good / average. They had a fixed price menu that came with Salad, lunch entree of fresh fish and dessert. Reasonable priced. The view is spectacular. The service was fine.

On visiting this place with my partner and two year old we asked for child's portions. We were told none were available and the child would have to order and pay for full meal off the a la carte. So we left promptly.

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. We recommend rice, fish of the day, and weekly menu. also salads, appetizers, meats, tapas, accompanied by an extensive wine list. 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 ...
