“Quality Fish but expensive and lack of friendly Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

The quality of fish and the cooking is out of this world, but it comes at a price! Kg of any fish is between 40 and 65 euros an more. And you just get a fish on the plate. Everything is else extra. So is the service which is very hit and miss. The old lady working there, definitely has passed "the sell by date". She doesn't smile, she doesn't communicate, she doesn't really want to be there. Obviously unless you are Catalan!

If you just want good food, and you are not bothered about the service, ambience and price - this is the place to go!

“Superb fresh fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

Just beautiful fresh fish cooked in front of us. Squid, prawns and a whole turbot. A friendly family business with the highest quality ingredients and cooking.

“A NATURAL MIRACLE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

This is simply what it is , The freshest fish from the bay of Roses cook ´ a la plancha ´ and treated with respect . This is the kind of place that makes me proud of being Spanish and to have the best seafood in the world with respect of Japan .
What can be better than this?
Expensive ? I don't think so , this is is a present from nature.
I would not recommend this restaurant if you you do not know how to eat seafood like sucking the fish bonds and heads of prawns to extract the maximum flavor of this delicacies.
Do not expect fine dining or service just the finest Seafood from the sea.
A MIRACLE!!!!
