“A class Act from start to finish”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We visited this restaurant last June after finding it on Trip Advisor. This time we visited it four times and everything excelled. Went with family and believe me when I say we tried a lot of dishes and it was all superb and topped off with great service in a lovely environment. Dishes like Gambas langostineras,paella marinera,bacalao donsottiarra cod, roquefort steak,ensalada salmon,calamaries andaluza,zarzuela pescado,gambas andaluza,bacalao musselina cod,langostinos costa,rodaballo cod and sea bass cooked in salt finished off and filleted at your table. Super selection of wines but we enjoyed Vaquos crianza at 14.50 euros and cava sangria at 9.50 euros.
When seated the menu soon arrives together with a complimentary glass of Cava which is a nice touch followed by a complimentary sharing starter dish like smoked salmon on tostas.It was so enjoyable to dine at the Amar and be attended to by people who really care about your whole dining experience. Reasonably priced in comparison with other restaurants in the resort.It certainly deserves its number one spot. Definitely a restaurant to return to when we visit this resort again. Make a reservation though on Friday and Saturday to be certain of a table as they do get busy from 9.00pm

“A real treat”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

After a long, evening beach walk, I finally found a restaurant worth exploring. It was actually fully booked, but in no time at all, they magically placed another table and chair in the restaurant for me.

The fish soup starter was amazing with lots of "goodies". The main course consisted of large tasty gambas (tiger prawns), all twelve (!) of them. The cold white wine accompanying the food was just right. The servings were substantial to the point that I had to let the sweets trolley pass me by. The meal was rounded off with a double espresso and a complementary digestive. A delightful evening meal.

“Outstanding food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We visited this restaurant three times during our six night stay in Castelldefels, that should tell you how good it is...

"Papa" the main waiter/owner is a true gentlemen and treated my family with such kindness that we kept returning. Reservations are recommended on Fri/Sat nights when the resort is busy.

The Calamari, Sea Bass (roasted table-side in salt), and steak are all highly recommended.

The only addition is that I wish they had fresh ice cream for desert, rather than the prepackaged type.

Other than that, this place is fantastic and our favorite place to eat in Castelldefels by some margin.

“Amazing experience, do not miss if your around”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We looked for a Restaurant in Tripadvisor and this was the number one closest to us and no wonder why... We arrived without reservations at around 8pm and the staff was kind enough to offer if we want to eat at the terrace in the back of the Restaurant since all the tables inside seemed to be reserved. I'm very glad we say yes because the food and the service was AMAZING. Let the Waiter surprise you with his choices, he brought a complimentary glass of cavas to start, then the Tempura calabacin, as a main dish we had the Lubina A la Sal (do not miss this fish cooked in "sel de mer", after is cooked the server bring it to the table with all the flames and finish the preparation in front of you. We tried the Sangria de Cava, and the desserts were very good as well, they offer us you plenty of little complimentary cookies and digestives. After our service started the place filled up quickly, with all the tables at the terrace occupied. so i suggest you reserve in advance
