Good food, adequate service, but as I said pretentious. Price to quality ratio is ok but ... well, I´ve only been there once and have no interest in returning, it just wasn´t enough.

Ordered a shared dinner of seafood. Started with a melon souped and several appetizers....salmon tartar, calamari, smoked squid in cheese sauce. Paella was okay but not excellent. Dessert was superb! Also included a nice bottle of wine. A lot of food for the $$!

Unlike the vast majority of over-rated Catalan restaurants, this place actually serves good food. Also unlike most Catalan restaurants, the waiters are polite and helpful. Five stars. Would go to Palamos again just to eat there again.

A restaurant in a historic building which was built by G. Eiffel’s company, near Palamós Port, with views over the sea. It has three dining rooms and a terrace. Its gastronomic offer is based on local produce and its star ingredient is the prawn from Palamós. Its wine cellar contains a large selection of wines from the area, as well as national and international ones. In our gastronomic offer you will find seasonal cuisine. The proposals we offer are linked to the sea and the land. It is a cuisine consisting of local produce from the countryside around us: the DNA of the Empordà region. If you are a vegetarian, coeliac or you have any food allergy or intolerance, we will adapt the recipe to your needs. Prawns from Palamós are, of course, our star product. Many people come from far and wide just to try them. We carefully number all the portions of prawns and we inform you about their quality.
