La Gaviota is not on the main restauant strip, and the outside dining area is pretty much in the carpark which no doubt puts the average tourist off but the food and value is exceptional. We've been going for years (more than I care to mention) and the quality is always five star. Highly recommended - and I'm really picky!

If you want a proper meal this is the place to be. The food is excellent and the owner very friendly. We visited this place before and the quality of the food is still te same; excellent. We paid € 75 euros including tip and had a very nice evening.

Hadn't been here in a while Oh how it has changed. The decor the same, but the food... Fabulous. Menu del dia is not cheap but not overpriced at €27.50 3 courses inc bread, wine and water, but worth it. Portions were large. Food was fresh. Ate a la carte too, a Paella and it was the best I have... More

We were 4 persons. Starters were pleasant. Wine good. Main dishes, arrow Dr Cabra De mar, fideuada and pasta fresca con pesto were really bad.

Lovely dinner with great service. You can eat cheaper in l'estartit but it won't be the best quality. We had the most delicious meal from the set menu and it was worth every penny. Would definitely recommend.

We visited one evening and had a very nice meal, the calamaris was excellent as was the paella. The proprietor was very welcoming and served the food himself.

The set menu is great. Yes it looks expensive compared with other places in the town, but the quality of food, wine and service is well worth the extra money.

The food was pleasant until the stomach cramps set in! We are thinking it had to be the fresh shellfish plater that only one of us ate that developed a severe upset stomach. Very disappointing because we liked it there…
