We went to this restaurant as some of the reviews suggested that this was the place to be for meat lovers. I had a beef steak which was perfectly cooked and must have had at least 500g. At a price of 15 EUR this was a bargain. Would definitely go there again.

If you are traveling across the Costa Brava and would like to get some meat instead of seafood for a variety's sake, you should go to La Escalopa restaurant in Begur. Unbelievable service and interiors will not let you remain indifferent. Wide choice of meats and wines will satisfy even an exacting guest!

We found this place as we were specifically looking for pizza in Begur. We each ordered a pizza which was delicious. I purposefully saved part of it for later because I wanted to get a brownie dessert. The waitress / owner was so friendly (which was strange as generally I don't find this to be the case in the other parts of Spain I have visited). She brought us out a tapa (which was also delicious). We actually liked it so much, we returned the second night and had pasta. This was also a great dish. The prices were good, the service was fast and friendly. The hardest part was finding this place as it is actually inside of a building and not an entrance from the street.

I would definitely return to try something new on the menu.

We went to this restaurant because in Trip Advisor it is rated the fourth best in Begur. Heaven knows how that has happened. It is situated in the middle of a slightly down at heel shopping centre. The view from the window is of an empty shop front across a pedestrian walkway. The food is Germanic and rather boring - the exception being a first class apple strudle. The waitress is very charming and helpful. There must have been about two dozen people in the restaurant and my wife and I were the only two who were not German. I assume that it got its high rating by being assessed by Germans.

Schade, dass Sie in Ihrer Kritik nicht naeher darauf eingehen, welches Gericht Sie sich in unserem Restaurant ausgesucht hatten. Es haette uns sehr interessiert, was an den Speisen oder welche Speise langweilig war.
Hatten Sie ein Schweinefilet in Rotweinsosse? Oder ein Schnitzel mit Schmorzwiebeln, Tomaten, Bacon und Spiegelei? Oder einen bunten Salat mit warme Haehnchenbrust?
Fuer den einen Langweilig, fuer den Anderen ein grosses Lob wert!

Das groesste Lob fuer uns ist zum Einen, dass wir viele zufriedene deutsche Gaeste haben. Diese koennen ca. 351 Tage im Jahr das typische Essen zuhause bekommen, essen aber in der schoensten Zeit des Jahres ( der Urlaub in Begur!) in unserem Restaurant!
Und zum anderen sind wir auch sehr stolz darauf, dass wir viele Spanier zu unserem Stammgaesten zaehlen duerfen. Sowie Englaender, Hollaender, Daenen, Italiener, Schweizer und so weiter. Wie schon geschrieben... fuer den einen Langweilig, .....

Das bei uns keine Karten akzeptiert werden, ist uebrigens kein Geheimnis. Bereits an der Eingangstuer weisst ein Zeichen darauf hin und in der Speisekarte ist ein entsprechender Vermerk in verschiedenen Sprachen, mehrmals abgedruckt.Fuer den seltenen Fall von Bargeldmangel kann jeder Kartenbesitzer Bargeld am Automaten ziehen, welcher genau vor dem Gebaeude zu finden ist.

Leider koennen wir die Einkaufspassage in der sich unser Restaurant befindet nicht verschoenern. Alle Geschaefte sind vermietet, was der Einzelne daraus macht, koennen wir nicht beeinflussen.
Das schoene ist, dass der Gast sich das Restaurant aussuchen kann!

In diesem Sinne wuensche ich Ihnen noch viele nicht lanweilige Restaurantbesuche ;-)

Considering both price and quality this is probably the best meal I've had in my recent 2 week stay in Begur. The service was very friendly, our kids felt very welcome and the food was delicious. I was a bit scared because of the strange location of the place, but I am really happy to have discovered this restaurant.
