First time we have visited this restaurant, walked past it hundreds of time but didn't realise what a gem we were missing. Had the tasting menu which was great value for money at 68 euros and consisted of 5 courses plus appetisers and pre-dessert. Had 3 fish dishes which were all very different but all fabulous. Our only slight disappointment... More

Fantastic food in a lovely old fisherman's house near the castle. We enjoyed a great tapas dinner along with a selection of excellent local wines and cavas. This restaurant is run by two brothers and located at the foot of Tossa's impressive medieval walls. Originally established by the grandparents as a bar for local fishermen, the modern-day restaurant boasts a... More

After having visited various Michelin restaurants over the past 12 months, latest the 3-star in Sant Pol I for sure put them in the first tier. It is true that the design and rather old fashion interior such as the first visual impression do not necessarily accompany the high culinary ambitions buy you come for the food right? I took...

Like many tourist towns, Tossa has some pretty average food. It also has some excellent restaurants like this one. We were late booking this place and were surprised to get a reservation as there are limited seats. In hindsight we would have eaten here more than once because the food is extremely good and the ambience not excessively formal. Pietro,... More

This is a great place to visit if you're looking for extraordinary food in a friendly environment. We ordered the classic menu (6 courses) together with the wine they recommend to each meal, and we also had a double espresso each. Summing up to 200 euro, it was a bargain. I cordially recommend this place!

Top end price but top end experience. We had the gastronomic tasting menu, as recommended by Lonely Planet, and asked for matched wines. Unbelievable tastes and best wine matching we have ever had. Top quality service, attentive but not intrusive. No hesitation in recommending this for a high end experience. Cannot recommend this any higher. Do not miss it.

Lovely meal, great service, beautiful surroundings. We had a special occasion to celebrate and we were not disappointed. My wife and I had several courses and we enjoyed each one. The service was attentive, the courses were presented beautifully in a lovely setting under the ramparts of the castle, just a few metres from the sea. The only disappointment was... More

Located next to the old fortress of Tossa de Mar, Can Simon is a wonderful nouvelle cuisine restaurant with a very traditional Mediterranean flavour. We visited the restaurant on a Monday evening, so it was very tranquil and the staff was excellent, discreet and friendly with us. They gave us lots of free greetings from the kitchen which were amazing.... More

Restaurant has 1 Michelin star, it is well deserved. We took classic sample menu and were not disappointed, exceptional service and food with small sampling size portions, which was good. One negative: bottled water had a smell after being in the glass for 5 minutes. We brought it to the attention of the waiter: he casually dismissed it on glass... More
