Visited this restaurant for my birthday meal whilst holidaying in Tossa De Mar. Myself and my hubby both ordered fillet steak (medium).

The one of several restaurants that line in the inland side of the Avenue Sant Raimon as it climbs from the beach in Tossa de Mar.

The food is ok but not of great quality I have been to Tossa a few times but never ate here and would not rush back there, the staff were good and friendly. I was not cheap for what we had.

This is not a cheap place to eat for the standard of food, the waiters friendly, I would not eat there again as it is not cheap. The setting is by the road side.

We absolutely loved the food here, and visited twice. We had fresh sardines, cheese, meats and potato bravas. The sangria is also very good.

We visited a few times for lunch or dinner during our Tossa stay. By the end, the wait staff chased us out of the restaurant to hug us and bid us farewell. So friendly. The seafood and tapas are excellent. Highly recommended.
