Though we've lived in the region for nearly 20 years, we do not often venture into Empuriabrava. But as this was out of season, and we were in the area, we decided to eat there, and chanced upon the Casa Gallego. We were not disappointed. Let's face it , top quality fish is not cheap anywhere these days, and CG is therefore not a cut price eating experience, but the ingredients, cooking, wine and service are all top notch. To be fair, the sky's the limit , budget wise, and it would not be difficult to run up a bill of over 100€ a head here, but we were perfectly suited by a big salad and some super fried chipirones to start and wonderfully fresh grilled hake and monkfish as a main. Too full for dessert ! Bottle of Ribeiro housewine , a couple of beers and coffee came to just under 100€ for the two of us. Right up there with the best seafood restaurants in the Costa Brava in our opinion.

We went there off season and first I really hated since the prices were without tax (IVA), there are literally no places where they don’t add the tax and u only find out it on the receipt or when U read that little line in the bottom, BUT, the food was AMAZING!!!!! fresh fish, nice service and finally we payed 80e for 3 ppl with wine, salads, and a big fish plate! Recommend!

We have been spending part of our holidays every summer in the area of Empuriabrava for over 30 years. Visiting Casa Gallego, owned by Emilio and operated by his wonderful and veteran staff, is a pleasurable ritual we engage in during every stay at least once. We have celebrated family birthdays and all sorts of occasions there and have always had a wonderful evening with great service and phenomenal food. It's not cheap but the quality is consistently fantastic. We always enjoy a couple "mariscadas" (shellfish platter) to share and we also typically order the "pimientos del Padron," "tigres," and "pulpo a la gallega." All are excellent. In Empuriabrava, there are few places comparable to Casa Gallego, with its friendly and familiar atmosphere and the amazing culinary experience. I sincerely recommend it for locals and visitors alike. And we'll be back next year!

Fruits De Mer is out of this world, worth every penny!

If you want to eat fish this is the best place you can come to in the area.

Second visit was just as amazing as the first, can't recommend enough :-)
