“Super suquet ...”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

By chance we ended up for lunch at this very nice and special restaurant after a long and warm walk in the mountainside, and a subsequent swim. We were hungry and thirsty, and not fully prepared for what we were to expect when we ordered the local specialty suquet, or fish casserole. But what a lovely surprise it was: Fantastic tasty soup with lots of perfectly prepared fish and potatoes. So simple, so delicious. I make a lot of fish-dishes myself, and know quality when I see it ... No way we could finish up everything. The restaurant is situated in an old fisherman's house, and the tradition and atmosphere is very well retained. This was a very nice experience which truly can be recommended!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

This classic fish restaurant in beautiful Port de la Selva had been on my list for a while and we had the opportunity to take family members there as a special treat last week. The location is perfect and the tiny balcony (only two cramped tables) has a lovely view over the bay. The food, however, was something of a disappointment after all the hype I had received. The warm scallop salad was delicious and the paella was good. But the Suquet de peix (a fish stew) was overpriced (around 55 euros for two) and tasteless. Just a huge casserole of potatoes swimming in a bland sauce with two pieces of fresh but indifferent fish. Not what I would expect from a restaurant with Ca l'Herminda's reputation. I won't be returning.

“Service?!? What Service?!?”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

Arrived to the restaurant after confirmed reservation for 15:00. Made to wait, as previos booking overran. Fine, not a big problem. Given a crampy table next to the toolets. Whilst browsing the Menu (with astronomical prices), we heard that a "better" table became available and asked to be reseted. Brilliant! Option granted bu a nice young waitres. At the same time a group of four "locals" wolked in and ask of there is a table available! Guess what, we were asked by the manager/owner to leave the table, so that newly arrived group could have "that" table. We've pointed out that we have a reservation and the new customers just Rrived on a chance to get a table, but obviously was not allowed to keep it. We walked out in disgust! The quality, cleanless and pricing is important to us, but the SERVICE is paramount! It is a shame that we will never be knowing the trye potencial of this restaurant!?!
