4.2

Good value fresh fish with the Cadaqués locals. Ideal for escaping the tourist trail.

I’d be lying if I said this place was especially scenic or chic - it’s neither, so if you’re only in Cadaqués for the day you’ll probably prefer somewhere with a bay view or a more genteel ambience. If on the other hand you’re here for longer and want to eat good, simply cooked fresh fish alongside the locals, you could do a lot worse than this place. The prices are decidedly untouristy too.

Food and drink

There is a big choice of fresh fish - grilled sardines, mussels, fried anchovies, octopus and hake - as well as snails, lamb and pig’s feet. My cod carpaccio was especially good, as were the sardines. Don’t come expecting gourmet cuisine – it’s not that kind of place. It is fresh though and much better value than any of the seafront restaurants.

Ambience

It's nearly always packed with locals for lunch and dinner with nary a tourist in sight.

Service

The staff are friendly and efficient.

Location

It's about a five to ten minute walk from the cinema museum and the main city shopping area.

Price advice

The menu of the day is nine euros.
