Food and drink
As the name would suggest, fish is very much the main deal here and the star dish is the cim i tomba – a local speciality fish and potato stew. A lot of the restaurants in Tossa do it as they have an annual festival celebrating the dish but, for my money, this is the best I’ve ever tasted. It's a combination of skate, monkfish and potatoes all slow-cooked together in an exceptionally subtle sauce of saffron, parsley and garlic. They also have a seriously good wine list and we washed down our dinner with a wonderful bottle of red wine from the Catalan Penedès region.
It's classy but friendly with a small, slightly more formal elegant dining room with chic neutral walls and contemporary art and a handful of trendy, 1960s space-age style tables on the terrace outside. It’s not all stuffy however and whilst you might get businessmen in the dining room at lunchtime, last time I was there, we had a chatty young French honeymoon couple at the table next to us.
The service is charming and attentive.
It's towards the end of the seafront promenade in Tossa with good views across to the ruined castle at the other end.
Cim i tomba costs 19.30 euros. Dinner/lunch for two is about 60- 80 euros.
Tables to book
There are a handful of tables outside on the pavement so if you particularly want to sit outdoors it's worth booking one.
