Expert review of La Sirena

Fantastically fresh fish at this small, good value, cosy Cadaqués gem.

The seafront in Cadaqués is lined with fish restaurants but I find a lot of them charge over the odds for their albeit lovely sea views, and the fish tends to be overpriced and not necessarily particularly memorable. La Sirena, meanwhile, is a different story.

Food and drink: 

The fish is really the main deal here and there’s usually a choice of several catches of the day such as hake, sea bass, tuna, salmon or monkfish. I had the sea bass last time I was here which tasted as if the fisherman had just brought it in moments earlier and was simply but perfectly grilled. With fish this good, it doesn’t need any more doing to it. The suquet (fish stew) is also fabulous. If you’ve got a soft spot for puddings like me, don’t leave without trying one here - believe me, they’re homemade and fabulous.

Ambience: 

It's cosy and traditional with whitewashed bare stone walls, ceiling arches, wooden tables and sky blue Van Gogh-style chairs.

Service: 

The owner Tommy will most likely come and chat to you and it all feels very homely friendly and warm. It's like eating in a really good, traditional seaside fish restaurant should be.

Location: 

It's up one of the narrow, steep side streets running behind the main seafront promenade.

Price advice: 

The two course menu costs 15.50 euros.
