Fantastic place to sit have a coffee on ice watch the public go by and then have lunch the best burger in town by far. Super gretel a challenge for anyone. Now they do gluten free rolls a great improvement as it opens up the menu from just goat cheese salad to any filling like pork or cheese etc. Great... More

We first came here four years ago, pleased to say there is no change, fantastic friendly staff, lovely fresh food and excellent service. Great value for our money, A must try is the bikini Gretel, scrumptious toasty with ham cheese and egg, will be here again next year for sure.

The burgers here are well done, their size isn't the biggest but they are at a good price (around 4 euros). The best think it it the double Big Gretel. They have very good sangria which it is great. Don't expect a fantastic service though

We were staying in this village and decided to go for a walk. We spotted this place as it's in the center of the village so after finding an empty table outside the restaurant we sat down and ordered some food from their vast menu. We ate some grilled cheese and vegetable toast which was delicious. We accompanied it with... More

We found this place by accident one evening right in the centre of Palafrugell. it reminded me of the French buffalo grill chain which are styled on american diners. Good burgers, good beer, service was fine and everything reasonably priced. we also ordered fish and wine which were good too. Cheap and cheerful. They also serve breakfast.

Vem menjar entrepans i braves. El formstge dels entrepans semblava plàstic, i les braves eren patates congelades. A més a més, els cambrers no estaven atents i tampoc eren gaire simpàtics. Resumint, poca qualitat i mal servei. We ate sandwiches and "Brave potatoes". The cheese of the sandwiches was like plastic, and the potatoes were bad frozen potatoes. Moreover, the... More

I have been to Gretel on several ocasions. I reccomend the morning offer of a fruit juice, small sandwich and tea or coffee, all for 3,95€. Quick service, though if you go on a Friday evening or at the weekend you are likely to find it quite busy.

If so, this is Palafrugells equivalent of Arnolds. Its very popular throughout the week, but more so on weekends. Especially throughout the six weeks Summer holiday. The menu is massive, mainly offering snack foods such as burgers, hot dogs, salads and sandwiches. But you can also order some fine dining meals, at very competitive rates. To enhance this, you can... More
