“Near perfection at the end of the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

As the lovely owner said 'we are at the end of the world so people don't come here by chance so we rely on word of mouth and doing the very best we can.' And their best was superb.

Initially I was mildly disappointed that the restaurant didn't actually overlook the bay but in fact the intimacy, friendliness and focus would have been lost if it had. A charming little terrace area; attentive, smiling and joking (in English!) waiters; a simple but well balanced menu and a good selection of wines. All complimented by the night closing in and the lights starting to flicker under the trees. The whitebait starter was perfect - a huge portion and the fish were the ideal size (so often they are just that bit too big) and the main courses were excellent.

How would I have made this perfect? That's easy. Book one of the 5 bedrooms; check-in and have a meander along the coastal path and a swim in the bay; maybe a recuperative cold beer on the beach cafe terrace and then back to relax, shower and change for dinner. And, after a superb meal, great wines and glass of port just climb up the stairs to your bedroom.

So that is all planned for later this year.

We have been here many times, and it never disappoints. Fantastic ambience, excellent fresh seafood expertly prepared and extremely friendly service. Would heartedly recommend.There is also a charming garden where tables are set up, and romantically lit.

The location of the hostal is excellent set behind a secluded cove.
Most visitors probably book rooms as an adjunct to eating at the restaurant which entirely justifies its accolades.
The service from the restaurant is excellent ably supervised by the owner Oscar present during restaurant service only.
The rooms are basic but functional. The breakfast is also functional.
There is however a glaring lack of air conditioning and service outside of restaurant hours.
In summer therefore the rooms have no method of being cooled or even a refrigerator.
Well worth a visit.

Hostal Sa Rascassa has to be the perfect place to get away from all the pressures of 21st century life. From the moment you are greeted by the owner Oscar you know you are in for a treat. The staff cannot do enough to ensure you enjoy every moment of the experience, the chef turns out amazing food and the lady who cleans the rooms makes sure everything is spotless EVERY day. A hidden gem a place you read about in a holiday novel or see on a film and think doesn't exist. Perfect.

We stayed two nights, eating in the restaurant both nights. The owner showed exceptional cMust be even better in warm weather!oncern that everything should be just right and it showed in the range and the quality of presentation of the food. It is hardly surprising therefore that the bedrooms should display the same attention to detail; immaculate decoration and very comfortable.

We just loved our 2 nights at Sa Rascassa in September. Tucked at the bottom of a windy road, a stones throw from a pretty cove. All the rooms are small but nicely and simply decorated with surprising cupboard space and very clean unfussy shower room. A really nice touch is a beach basket with beach towels are provided for your stay. We had dinner under twinkling lights strung through the trees and it was simple but delicious food. The place is run by Oscar, who with just one assistant managed to look after a full house in very good time, in the correct order and with a smile on his face! We loved it so much we also had lunch there and had to drag ourselves out on the second night as we really thought we ought to explore as we only had two days! Reluctantly though! You need not drive during your stay as a few hundred yards to the left is another restaurant with a wonderful terrace overlooking the see and a 10 minute walk to the right is the lovely bay Sa Tuna - with several delicous restaurants to chose from - Oscar will lend you a torch to navigate the path after dark! Absolute heaven.

We like quiet, small, personable places in hidden pockets with great food. For us this place was just right. Tucked in a cove a few steps from the water, A pathway to other coves, privacy yet amazing people on hand if needed.
Sept is a good time, the weather is still good and the crowds are gone.
We hope to return to this little gem.
