This is a small restaurant in picturesque Cadaques just 40 kilometers form the border of France. The restaurant is cozy and every time we go to Cadaques we chose this restaurant for dinner and now after the latest experience, for lunch also. The food is exceptional and the staff are attentive and explain clearly what is available for the day's... More

The food and service in this restaurant was really good. The manager did a great job in helping with what wine to choose and there were so many options I wanted to try it was difficult to choose. We had 3 courses and coffee and all were exceptional - not fine dining just really great tasty food

We went to Es Raco for lunch while visiting Dali's Port Lligat museum for a day from a different part of Costa Brava. Some reviews on Tripadvisor recommended this restaurant because it was good value. On the map it looked slightly out of the way, in an obscure little street - something we normally look for. But on arrival we... More

Our hotel in Cadaques recommended Es Raco to us on our first night and we were pleased they did. This small restaurant is tucked away and is not in the main restaurant area. We were told to "go through the arch and turn right." The restaurant has two outside areas to eat, which in October can be cold in the... More

We were lucky enough to get a table with a view in this small but lovely restaurant. The set menu was fresh and delicious and the staff were helpful and friendly. Recommended!

We had lunch there a few days ago. We all (we : a French family) took the "menu of the day" and loved it (the main course was fresh fish). And the team is very careful and so "calm" : there is some kind of Zen atmosphere in this place 😊.

We had just attended a lovely guitar concert in the church and wandered into Es Racò mostly by chance. After waiting a couple of minutes we were shown in and quickly noticed how small the restaurant is. But in this case, size definitely isn't everything. As soon as the food arrived on our table it became clear that this is... More

Es Raco became the culinary highlight during our visit to Cadaques - 5 stars seem insufficient to classify this small family run restaurant. Food was so good that we decided to come back the next night for more. VAMOS A ES RACO! Do not miss the tuna belly cerviche, the salmon tartar and the iberian pork with goat cheese filled... More
