4.5

A great value bistro and tapas bar in the heart of Tossa de Mar.

This great little cafe/bistro serves, to my mind, some of the best, authentically Spanish food in Tossa. Unlike quite a lot of the nearby restaurants, it’s not at all touristy and, although it may not have a sea-view, the food is much better than most of the seafront restaurants lining the promenade. It’s also much better value.

Food and drink

Their brochettes/kebabs are freshly cooked on the charcoal grill and the mixed seafood grill is a feast of Dublin Bay prawns, King prawns, monkfish, battered squid and monkfish. I also particularly like their mussels in tomato sauce (a steal at 12 euros).

Ambience

It's lively and bustling – there are only 10 tables in the small, yellow wood-panelled room and a couple outside.

Service

It's super-speedy if a little on the brusque side. This is not the kind of place to linger if you’re here during busy lunch or dinner hours. It’s a family-run business and last time I was here the not-to-be-messed-with elderly matron at the helm was very keen for us to be on our way as soon as we’d paid our bill.

Location

It's just behind the main seafront promenade on the pedestrianised corner of one of the old town’s main thoroughfares.

Price advice

Grills cost between 10–12 euros.
