We popped in on the off chance of finding a table for an impromptu lunch and were greeted by efficient and very friendly staff that made the whole occasion a delight. The menu was extensive and the food of the highest quality.
Had the best lunch here. Superb service. Started with simple bread with tomato strain and meat croquets. Followed by the most devine monkfish with potatoes and cod on a bed of mash (donostrairre?), ending with decadent figs with mascarpone ice cream and Tarte tatin and cinnamon ice cream..perfect!! Great bottle of wine recommended by the waiter.. What more could you need. Will be coming back here, real gastro food.
We went out into llafranc for an anniversary dinner. We chose here after checking it out over previous days. It was amazing. The extensive menu leaves you drooling. I had black pudding with a pepper sauce. My wife had a puff pastry with mozzarella and a sobrassado( minced cured chorizo). Colours abound and tasted out of this world. Mains we had steak. 2 different cooking styles. Dessert and wine later the bill came to 95 euro. Service was great. Anything we asked for was promptly produced. If I could give 6 out of 5 I would.
There's quite a bit that is good about this hotel. It's location is fantastic, being right on the beach in Llafranc. Our room, though small and a little tired, was spotlessly clean and the receptionist/manager was very accommodating of our dog, giving us a room with a terrace. We ate dinner at the hotel twice and the food was pretty good. Generally the staff were pleasant. In particular the chamber maid was very helpful and went out of her way to help us access the wifi. However our stay at the hotel was marred by the attitude of one senior member of staff who was a best brusque and at worst rude on more than one occasion. For the first night of our 2 night stay, there was no hot water in the room. We only realised when we wanted showers before bed, but immediately informed the staff. There was also no light in the hallway outside our top floor room - again we mentioned it as soon as we realised. The light was fixed that night, but we were told by the head waiter we should have reported the problem earlier and asked how he could fix it if we didn't tell him it was broken. He did this in front of other diners in the restaurant, a couple of whom told us how inappropriate they thought his behaviour was. The hot water was fixed by 11am the following day. No apology, discount or compensation was offered for the inconvenience of not being able to shower on the first night of our stay. A complimentary glass of wine or aperitif would've been enough to acknowledge the inconvenience. There was definitely a sense of 'easy come, easy go' in the attitude to guests. Overall, we loved Llafranc, but would not stay at Hotel La Llagosta again.…
Overall I did not enjoy this hotel/hostel but perhaps for the right person it could be good find. First, the good things: the location is excellent - right on the beach and the restaurant has a large outdoor seating area with a great view. The room was very clean - spotless really. But, for us, these things just weren't enough to overcome the rest. Upon entering it was difficult to tell who (if anyone) was working the reception desk. Wait staff walked by us for quite some time before someone finally stopped to help. This happened repeatedly during our one night stay so I always felt like a bother even though I was only trying to check in/check out and confirm the details of our pre-arranged luggage transfer (difficult at best). We definitely had a language barrier but I don't think they have any actual reception staff. The Room: The bathroom is small and dark and its window opens into the hallway so it doesn't air out exactly and it lacks some degree of privacy. The shower curtain was a thin shower curtain liner that sticks to you as you shower. We were on the 2nd floor, back of the building, and from our room we could hear noise from the kitchen (via the open window), the hallway, and the street all night long so this was not a restful night. and lastly, the lights in the bathroom and room were blue! I suspect they had purchased cheap "environmentally friendly" bulbs and the color temperature was not great. So, more an unfortunate accident than anything to blame them for but the light tone was definitely not relaxing. So, I think if you want a very basic, clean, well-located place to stay and don't mind wearing earplugs, then this might be a good deal. I suspect they charge a lot for their location (this room was arranged for us as part of a larger tour so I can't comment on price). There were a few staff who tried to be helpful but we had to win them over first. For us, it felt too much like a roadhouse and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't speak fluent Spanish (Catalan actually would be better, or French!). I don't require a lot of attention but I do prefer to stay in places where the guests are the focus of the business, and not made to be felt that they are in the way of the waitstaff when simply standing at the reception desk (hoping for someone to show up).…
