For many years it has been and is the best restaurant in Ampuriabrava. Nice place, big restaurant without problems of place in the center of the village. Splendid fish and meat and a good variety of wines. Good service...what else can we expect?

Been a customer of El Capitan for over 30 years and its consistency has never varied. Always a hearty meal, great selection of menus, excellent helpful staff and a great ambiance - right at the heart of Empuriabrava.

Nice central location with just a short walk to the beach. Service was attentive & fast. The menu was international & pretty comprehensive. We could have chosen many dishes but once we found our favourite 'Cut meat Zurich Style with Rosti' (Zurcher Geschnetzeltes) we didn't look any further. The big question was would it live up to its reputation &... More

Only ever had lunch here, the food and menu are good and its very well situated on a corner /roundabout with plenty parking and close to the beach the layout and style are a bit old fashioned but as the majority of people seemed to be in that age group it didn't make any difference, waiters are attentive and have...

We stopped for a dog friendly beach our way to Barcelona (Playa Rubina) but actually dogs appear on most of the beaches. Chose Capitan as they let the now wet dog on the terrace. Good choice. The first bottle of wine was corked. It was changed without question. The Monk fish and prawns was excellent and the grilled tour it... More

The food was pretty good, however not the greatest. The staff speaks very good English. We were sat outside and even though it's not the restaurant's fault, we were approached a few times by people selling roses, watches and hats, which interrupted the nice atmosphere and conversations 4 times.

Unfortunately we were left very disappointed with our visit to Capitan. The food was average and the staff not great. The worst thing was that we were charged for the bread basket that we didn't ask for and worse still they took it away before we had finished the 3 rolls which they sneakily added over 3 Euro's onto the...
