Stopped in for chicken, chips, potato salad and beer after a long walk on the beach. Great atmosphere and good service. They also do a great takeaway business on the weekends.

The best cooked chickens in town. The ambiance is fun, everyone sits on one big long table. The chicken and chips are excellent, they also have some other dishes on the menu and could serve a different salad but chickens are worth going for.

Great rotisserie chicken. Obviously a family business run over many years, if not generations. Go early (7 or 8'sh before the locals) if you want to sit at one of two bench seats, or get magnificent roast chickens to go. This small town of Altafulla would appear to have quite a few very good restaurants.

We discovered this little place quite a few years ago, I love their Calcots and the sauce that come with it. Always a warm friendly service. The place is very popular so make sure if you want to get a seat you don't leave it too late… it could very well be the best little take away joint in Catalunya!

It is a little-big place to taste the real way of Altafulla roasted chicken; flavoured with local spices like thyme,rosemary... Also they have other dishes like french fries, calçots You can eat inside or take away. Really great.

What a cracker! Being going for 50 years. Takeaway does a huge trade. if you want to eat on the few stone table outside get there early! Just good honest food. Succulent chicken plus choice of accompaniments. Cheap as chips. Great sangria seems to be sold only by the litre - so watch it you're driving. A great local experience.... More

This is the kind of restaurant you might find on the legendary Route 66 in the US - one of a kind, on the main two-lane highway in the middle of a small town, operated by its friendly owners, and featuring simple but delicious food. The rotisserie chicken is the signature dish and the main reason this place is vastly... More

If you are staying in the area (within a 15-min drive of Altafulla, although some customers come from further away) and have the possibility to eat in the house or apartment you are staying in, oh dear, you must go to this place for a take-away! Do not think of the usual fast food take aways, (e.g. Chinese....), which lack... More

I've been visiting this polleria since the 1970s and it forms an essential component of a visit to this part of Spain. It never seems to change - there's no need for it to do so! - and the welcome is only the start. The family always refer to this as "Chicken Charlie's" and it's an eclectic mix of great... More
