Trusting our guide book, we searched for and found this very nice little restaurant. Everything was according to expectations. Very good service, food and atmosphere. We will come again, for sure!

After reading some of the reviews we were looking forward to yet again enjoy a delicious meal, as so far had been the case in Calella.
I chose fish soup for my entrée but what I got was a bowl of fish stock with one tiny lone muscle. Not quite what I expected from a renowned fish restaurant in a fishing village and costing €8.50. My husband chose a salad containing artichoke and foie and rated it as average.
For our mains I chose peppers stuffed with a cod filling but wasn't aware it was a cold dish. It was however quite tasty but lacked presentation. My husband chose the Turbot. The fish was excellent but once again lacked garnish and no lemon- just fish and two slices of luke warm potato with a slither of red pepper.
We did not find the staff very friendly and helpful in translating some of the more complex dishes.
We asked for tap water which is pretty much the norm around here and received bottled water for which we were billed. All in all a disappointing evening.

We have been going to La Gavina for a few years now and always had good food. This year they have made a new entrance an upgraded the back of the restaurant. As always the food was good and reasonably priced.

Up a little side street, just away from the beach front, in a nice courtyard setting. Service ok but not overly friendly. Food was fine, particularly the range of fish dishes available. The restaurant wasn't very busy when we went but this might have been because it was early in the evening.
