My son found the El Fornet when we were in E'startit in September 2013.
You could have 3 courses for 8 euro 90. The starter was like a main meal for e.g I had about 40 Mussels as a starter then Chicken which was fresh off roasting grill and chips then for pudding Catalan Crème which was lovely. The chicken was well cooked and moist. My wife son and daughter had Garlic bread for starter Chicken and chips and two had Chocolate ice cream and my wife had Tiramisu and said It was one of the best she has tasted. They have a good choice menu. We went there 6 times and it was just as good as the first time.
When we go back next year we will be definitley eating there again.

The address says Torroella de Montgri, however I am reviewing the El Fornet in L'Estartit, it is on a corner 2 roads back from the main promenade, opposite Hotel Restaurant Vila and just up the road from Fancy's.
They offer a very extensive menu, ranging from Pizza, steak, pasta's, rotisserie chickens, its not a high class establishment, its what I would class as fast food, however it is mostly homemade, the restaurant is clean, service friendly and they know what they are doing having been here for almost as long as I have been visiting L'Estartit.
We don't normally visit here during our hols, unless we fancy having take away pizza, however we are glad we did.
The kids can sometimes be fussy eaters, after having a couple of "hard" nights out it was nice to see them tucking in again, saying that they only had maccaroni bolognaise which is fairly simple to make but they enjoyed it.
I had tomato soup, at 5 euros, when it came it was quite a stingy bowl of what I assume was knorr powdered soup, so it those terms it was quite expensive for what it was.
The spaguetti carbonara I had for my main was expensive at 9 euros but it was a large bowl full that left me full, plus it was very tasty.
The wife had an extremely large pizza for around 8 euros, she only managed half of it.
All in all a decent meal, not going to win any awards but it will leave you satisfied, stick to the main courses (pizza, pasta or chicken) as they are large enough to fill you up and then its a reasonably priced meal, we will visit again during our future visits and think I will try the chicken as the smell coming from that was very appealing !

Wood roasted juicy chicken flavored with white wine and herbs, the secret of El Fornet. The menu's offered here are incredibly cheap and the many different formulas offer something for everyone's taste; Pizza's, chicken, paella, salads.... Open nearly from 12 noon till late and sitting in the cool shade of the vines this place is a good and economic option.
