“Beautiful lunch”
Reviewed 4 June 2013 via mobile

We shared a beautiful tonyina €20 for starters after a first class complementary tomato soup. The tuna had been marinated on lime and quickly seared. It was magnificent served with cherry tomato and horseradish sauce. Small in quantity but taste to be proud of. Followed that with perfectly fresh gambas de palamos. The peach Melba dessert was especially nice. Bread, coffes, and bottle of house wine €11 came to total of €75.
Felt it was a quality meal served by friendly people with a bit of atmosphere. Would return.

“Thank you.......”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Thank you for being so friendly and so inviting!
It was late and after much walking we stumbled across this small family run restaraunt. The food was amazing and worth every penny. Agathe and her husband Roger have a small menu, but accommodated our difficult tastes. the food was fresh and beautifully prepared.
The chocolate desert is a must!
Thank you!

“Great service & kitchen!”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

The service and the dishes were excellent! Yes, it is not one of the cheap restaurants but one gets really good value for the money!

The waitress is very friendly and fast. The cook is an artist, how he is preparing the dishes - I just loved it - the taste, the combinations and the presentation of the food were just great!

“The best French dining in the Costa Brava”
Reviewed 9 February 2013 via mobile

After a hard days work we tried this restaurant for dinner. Although it is off season we were not disappointed. From the early greeting by our lovely French hostess,we proceeded to be spoiled by the food,the service,the hospitality and the general ambience of the place. The food and the service was second to none & everything was served with a smile from our waitress,who was also our hostess. The food was excellent but the presentation was amazing. The cheeseboard was the best I have ever had. The only slight disappointment was that they ran out of our first choice of wine. We had to go somewhat upmarket for our third bottle but the quality of that bottle made up for any misgiving. A truly wonderful experience & one which we hope to repeat next time we are within 100km of the area.
