In Cadaques for a day. Am sure we’d have enjoyed the same old same old Spanish and seafood menus at any one of the many shoreline and back street restaurants. However we accidentally found Es Raco - a tall tree that stands out in the lovely forest.
Lunchtime and not crowded - we sat at one of two tables on the tiny terrace. Views across harbour either side of tall tree!
Everything we ate was sublime - prepared with flavour uppermost and care on the plate. But the Tuna ceviche with foraged edible seaweed, local fennel and lemon drops has to be one of the best plates of food I’ve ever enjoyed - truly sensational.
Dining room small intimate and uncluttered.
Reasonable choice of well priced wines.
If you love inventive tasty food visit this tall tree amongst the restaurants.

My wife and I had dinner at Es Raco on 25th June 2018. It was absolutely fabulous. We had visited Tiramisu a couple of nights before and considering they were both the same price range there was no comparison. The food at Es Raco is imaginative and flavoursome. The service was excellent with staff explaining how the dish is prepared. There are 2 tables for 2 on the balcony that add a little special feel.Heartily recommend.

We called at the restaurant without a booking around 19.30 but were then able to book for 20.00 when it opened. The owner (lady) is a very good host and she has an excellent system of work going with a server and the kitchen and no one seemed to be waiting long for anything while the two of them literally buzzed around us.

We had a great dinner - monkfish which was exceptional in taste and really good local white wine.

This is a lovely friendly restaurant with a good atmosphere and wonderful food. A real find in Cadaqués.

Great food, service a bit lacking. We were served an appetizer that we didn’t order and an entree was omitted/forgotten while a glass of wine had to be reminded of a couple times. All in all, a 5 star food experience (dorado was amazing) w a 3 star service nets a 4.

This small restaurant manages to maintain a high level from its opening until now. A professional and creative chef, a great and a friendly service and clear culinary worldview - make it the best at Cadaques.
