“Excellent hole in the wall to visit in Begur.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We visited Casa Juanita three times for two lunches, and a dinner experience during our week-long sojourn in charming Begur.

Some days were better than others, as far as cookery and service went at this establishment. But, we didn't mind, because at the end of each meal we received healthy home-cooked local cuisine, featuring the freshest seafood. O.K., the fish was a little pricey, but, the good and cheap vino balanced everything out! O.K., a few dishes were a bit too salty, but, hey nobody is perfect.

The unassuming entrance to this restaurant adds to its charm, located off the Calle Pi I Rallo (a good chunk of restaurants are located on that lane). A primitive looking wood-fired oven is in the back left corner of the narrow dining room, where we could see the chef preparing a majority of the grilled/baked dishes; the service dispense bar is to the right. When everything is going well, this is a charming little place, and if it wasn't for the slight inconsistencies mentioned above, I would have given it a perfect review, 5 out of 5. Just be patient if things aren't running so smoothly!

“I was not happy...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

we tried ... twice... but no luck. Once we even booked a table, but when we arrived, it was the one beside the kitchen... and we left. Next time perhaps? or not

“Very very special find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

My husband and I both loved this very excellent restaurant!
The fish was sublime,so was my lamb!
There was a very delicious and unique salad which had baby fava beans in it.
The brothers gave this restaurant ambience we did not find elsewhere.
Wish we lived closer!!!

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013 via mobile

A tiny place with great service and delicious food. Kids felt welcome. The local catch of the day is baked in a real wood fired oven.
