“Not overly impressed unfortunately”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We chose the set menu - €18 for starters, main, lemon sorbet & glass of wine. We were given all three starters (which we were surprised at) of mussels, gapachzo (cold tomato soup) & salad which were not bad. Then I had rice with razerclams & cod, again it was OK and then the lemon sorbet.
I was all OK but from the impression of the decor of the inside which was very nice, I felt it didn't live up to what it was trying to be, ie a more upmarket restaurant. I felt the cooking wasn't up to much as probably a lot was pre-bought.
Nice area on the edge of the square though.

“never again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

In this restaurant there was poor service, bad food and they did not even get one of our orders right. I was disappointed because it looked like a nice restaurant but as they say dont judge a book by its cover.

“Immaculately clean, well presented, welcoming, excellent Catalan cuisine, pleasant service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2010

We dined twice in this pleasant restaurant located on plaza Placa Nova - lovely to eat outside in summer months watching comings and goings. This is a very helpful and welcoming family run business - right down to 14 yr old son offering to help with translating the menu on our first visit. We have enjoyed excellent meat dishes and wonderful sea food and paella. On both occasions we left with a sense of our patronage having been appreciated. We will have no hesitation in recommending Placa Nova as an excellent local restaurant in the remarkable, old world fishing village of L'Ametlla de Mar.

“Good quality seafood, solid service, definately worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2010

We were a large group, looking for a restaurant to feed a mixed group adults and children. We picked this place and they sat us outside to start with, presumably as a large group outside will attract more people. It started to spit with rain, so the waitress said "Vamos" and we went upstairs to a pleasant dining room. The paella and arroz negre were both good with lots of prawns, clams, squid etc. The service was solid. You need to get by with basic Spanish, but they were friendly and helpful. The prices were comparable with other restaurants around town. The seafood, especially the rice dishes are definately the best value.
