The fish counter at the entrance shows many different kinds of fishes and shells : all are very fresh. Don’t go too late to the restaurant if not you will not find a great choice.
All recipes are well prepared and tasty.
Prices are in...good relation to quality.
Staff very kind.More
When we walked in, they gave us drinks while we are waiting in line to order seafood. Seafood is fresh, lobster is still moving but we didn’t order that. Razor clam is excellent, we had it grilled with oil. We also had clam and shrimp...for starter. Clam and shrimp are ok compare to the razor clam. For main dish, we ordered seafood paella, very tasteful and the portion is perfect for the two of us.More
We had the sea food paella and the salad with cheese formatge which were both very tasty..A big plus is the waiters who where both helpful and kind.Dont miss the chance to have this amazing experience..
We went there becouse everybody recomended it to us, and it didn't disapoint us at all. I strongly recommend the octopus, We went there 2days after to eat it again. An the stuff there is delightfull and charming. We recommend going in work days becouse...in weekends is crowded, we had a better expirence then.More

Dear customer, thank you for your words, you are absolutely right, on weekends, there is a lot of customers, during the week you can be calmer, thanks for your appreciation, for valuing our best-selling octopus. Greetings from the whole team.
It's really difficult to say something possitive about the restaurant after all troubles we had I such a short amount of time, probably it coudnt be worse, let's start from the beggining.
After cheking the good reviews we book a table of 7 at 10.00,...we showed up a bit before (21:50) as we usually do to have some drinks while we check the menu. Our first surprise was that the restaurant was full ( something normal in this dates, wich we understand ) we asked the waitress how long it would take to have our
table ready, kindly she answer that the costumers that were on the table that we would sit were done with the food, and were about to pay. We decided that would be better to let them finish and set up the table for us, so we went to have a drink somewhere else. We came back after 30min (22:20), expecting that everything would be ready for us, it wasn't the case, nothing had changed. The table wasn't ready but that wasn't the worst, we had the privilege to talk with the owner wich his words were literally "this is normal in this dates, what do you expect" without apologizing at all. After such a rude coment we were wondering if we would still wanted to eat there, it was quite late and there was not many options, so we tryied to forget his words, wait a bit and give it a chance, probably the worst desition of 2019.
We sat down at 22.40, the waitress bring us a glass of cheap "cava" wich was something kind of nice after all the waiting time, we understood that was their way to apologize after all the waiting time.
It was my first time ( and the last one) at the restaurant so I decided to let the waiter recomend me wich would be the best to eat. He friendly answer that the lobster rice (the most expensive one they have, 26eur/person) is their best seller and we shoudn't miss it, he also recomend some different starters. We trusted him and order all he said plus some of our choices.
We had some mussels, scallop, tuna and salmon tataki wich I think it was really fresh and nice I have to say. After all the starters the waiter brough the "best of the best" the famous lobster rice wich end up being a tasteless overcooked rice worth more than 100 eur. I've eaten many times rice and I could say that you can get the same or even better in a 10eur menu restaurant. When I asked the waiter why the rice was overcooked he apologize saying "you have had many starters and you were quite slow eating that's why it was like that" I simply had no words after his answer.
After eating all we ordered the waiter brough us a trail with 6 small plates wich it contains their deserts selection. Basicly it was a desserts that they probably made arround 12:00pm (right before they open) just to show us how do they look ( could be a good idea from 12 to 15 ) but after standing in a plate for more than 10 hours they just looked disgusting. Some of us ordered a "xuixo" wich is a common sweet in girona's pastry shops and usally cost about 1.5eur each ( they charged more than 8eur) such a good profit they made (completly unfair) and with and icecream ball was about 11eur ( Crazy prices to be in Girona ). One of us ordered chocolate fondant wich just looked reheated on the microwave with some sort of chocolate sauce and similar price. Just unbeliable how can they sell that.
We were quite upset about the whole experience so we asked for a free shot to make our expirience a bit better, the waiter's answer was clear and short "if you want a shot is 4 eur each"
I was freaking out about everything that happened in less than 2 hours, thinking that it coudn't be worse but they beated it, we wanted to pay our bill wich was almost 400 eur ( insanely expensive for what we got )
I cheked the bill and there was something weird, 7 eur that they charged as "bread" but we never got it. I kindly ask the waiter why it was there, his answer " sorry, it was my fault" so he remove it. (What would happen if I haven't say anything?)..
Resuming the whole experience in a few words. Waiting time too long, rude owner, good starters, overcooked rice, super expensive desserts.More
Nicely located in the centre of Girona. Food however was so so: our lobster was overcooked and didn't 'taste as fresh as it looked' when we ordered it. The BIG setback was the price. We paid around 180 euro's for 3 persons and we really...didn't order a lot and/or only expensive fish. For the same money you can eat way better in Girona. A pity because the concept is nice, staff was friendly, location tip-top.More
