I came here with my family the second night of our visit and wished we could come here every night. All of the food is amazing and the staff was very nice. Since I have to eat gluten free we called ahead in advance to let them know. When we arrived they told us that anything on the menu could... More

We searched for the best Paella in L'escala and found it here. When you're in front off the place it doesn't really look like a top reastaurant. But don't let you get fooled by it's looks. The waitress didn't talk English and when we oredered the Paella she said it could take up to 1 hour: that's the living proff... More

Locally sourced and freshly cooked doesn't come more local or fresher than the seafood served here nor could the food be less pretentious or fashion conscious than in this beautifully situated and simple restaurant overlooking the sea at the top of the town. Throw in warm unassuming service and totally welcoming and relaxed staff and I for one couldn't or... More

What more could you ask, the most beautiful view out to sea and the setting sun! Lovely selection of local fish meals or tapas, all washed down with some excellent local Emporda wines

We had visited La Punxa previously and so headed for there again. We were there in October and the outdoor space was enclosed. We sat indoors looking out to the Pyrenees. We ate the omelette sandwich and a ham and cheese sandwich. Both were delicious. Internet is available and we were not rushed, so you can spend time over a... More

Very disappointed with our dinner at La Punta. We had ordered several tapas and were told when ordering the "sepia" and "calamares" that they had run out. Instead we were offered the fish of the day, a "Gallo", which in Spain is a common fish. When receiving the bill we were charged 120 euros for two "Gallos". After asking the... More

My family and I have just returned from an excelent week in L'escala. One of the first bars/restaurants we happened to walk into became our favourite for the holiday..... la Punxa! The menu is varied and has a slightly larger selection compared to others (very good sea food tapas). The food is fresh and delicious, the staff are fantastic, always... More
