We had lunch here and tried the “Truffle menu” (50 €/ person). Everything was good but I was expecting to teste more of the delicious flavor/aroma of truffle which I didnt get. In general the restaurant is good or above average. We could come back.

I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. We recently enjoyed three wonderful lunch time menus and already have our next booking for when we return to Spain. The food is innovative and very tasty. The proprietors and staff are always welcoming and attentive.

We just had a very fine meal yet again at this special restaurant. The food was excellent and service was seamless and the staff attentive. They have a new house wine that was very good value. Well done.

Took 3 quite different sets of three courses and all were fabulous. If to pick on anything - we needed to wait 10m to get a table.

This is an amazing place - undoubtedly you could find a cheap eat somewhere else, though this combines quality with price! We ate there on a menu del dia offer which wasn't expensive at all, yet, the quality of ingredients and cooking was the best...More

I was looking forward to visit after one year la Gruta again. We took the 23€ menu with a group of friends. Superb menu, accompanied by a simple though great local Emporda wine, served by the friendly staff. Quality remains really great and we will...More
