Highly recommend! We ordered four pizzas and a salad so that we could eat dinner on the beach. All four pizzas were delicious... the order taken by a lovely lady and delivered in 15 minutes. A mad dash to the beach and we were the envy of the restaurant diners as we ate inches from the sea. Perfect. Thank you.

Restaurante Galena Mas Comangau

Restaurante en Begur, de cocina tradicional Mediterranea a la brasa de carbon vegetal.Facilidades de aparcamiento.

Reviewed By Michael G

Weekday menu is excellent value and enjoys the same quality dishes (like roast suckling pig) as the a la carte menu and also includes wine. We have enjoyed the most delicious char grilled rabbit dishes and excellent locally fished baby squid. Think we had the biggest fillet steaks ever, char grilled to perfection during our visit last Sunday to celebrate our 45th anniversary !

Restaurant L'Arc

Reviewed By FranceSally - Girona, Spain

I feel sad to write this review as I live near to L'Arc. 4 of us went for lunch on a Thursday which was a national holiday. We waited 20 minutes before someone offered us a drink and brought a menu. Water duly arrived but there was a further 10 minute wait for our order to be taken. 3 of us chose items off the menù del día and the 4th person chose an entrecote steak à la carte. Wine was included in the menu and that arrived after another 10 minutes. In all we waited 55 minutes for our starters - 3 small rounds of smoked salmon with a runny chickpea purée inside. This was definitely not what we had expected for "ravioli of smoked salmon with chickpea humous and soy sauce".
Another long wait for the main course. 3 of us had grilled turbot - & that is exactly what we were served. 3 small pieces of grilled turbot with a little sauce, no potatoes, no vegetables, no accompaniments. Our friend's steak arrived with mix vegetables. For dessert I ordered homemade tiramisú with coffee ice cream & Baileys. This arrived in a bowl & looked similar to Eton Mess, a sort of goo. It tasted OK but was not properly presented. A friend had pineapple tatin, which turned out to be a slice of grilled pineapple with a small piece of pastry shaped like a long biscuit on top. Another friend ordered a chocolate dessert which was the best of the 3.
The service was surly and unbelievably slow. This is the 2nd time I have been here & I didn't much enjoy my lunch the 1st time. I shan't be going back.

Xado

Restaurant Xado , invites you to enjoy their cuisine . Here you will find them a mixture of the best of Morocco and the Baix empordà . Come to find aromatic flavours with our tagines , couscous , salads . Enjoy a fantastic black rice , try the original symply of carpaccio or best quality of fish and seafood from Palamos. Also from mid-January you have the Garoinada

Reviewed By Peter s - Heiloo, The Netherlands

Spain still has a territory in North Africa and I guess the owners or the chef comes from there, as the menu mentions dishes like humus and couscous. We went for the Pica Pica Seafood menu, €27,50 pp. Pica Pica stands for shared dishes and we got 7. Grilled bread with tomato and achovies. Deep fried baby eels. Squid. Two types of Shrimps. Cod and more. Very simple but very fresh and well prepared ( which is not as easy as it sounds!) Perfect service too. We had a very nice lunch.

Fiego

Reviewed By Michiel N - Breda, The Netherlands

What's to say. Food is excellent, location is superb. No rush (only for the waiters) If you want to have a long lunch , no problem.
Reserving a table is quit easy. Be there around 10:00 O'clock. At the latest 11:00 that's the only time then you can reserve a table for lunch.

Restaurant El Timo

Restaurant menu and breakfasts. Daily menu : 11,50 € weekend menu 17,00 €

Reviewed By LvdG_12 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

El Timo is the place where workers go for lunch and where families have their Sunday brunches.
The food is fresh and simple and of great quality. The menu is traditional Spanish or Catalan family food and it is prepared with love for the food and respect for the customers.
The lady serving is a sweetheart. Her father, running the bar, a friendly old man.
We have been here several times. And every time we feel we have eaten very well and gotten a lot of value for little money.
And don't worry about the wine. Take the red, it is served cold and a very tasty local wine also nice to enjoy as tinto de verano. I guarantee you a good meal in a friendly place. Go where the locals go!

Restaurant Aiguaclara

Enjoy dinner in our cozy and romantic Restaurant with good music, warm lighting, looks, smiles and with all the flavor of Mediterranean cuisine ... Sleep in a Colonial Mansion 1866. 10 rooms full of detail in a magical atmosphere.

Reviewed By EvaLucia - London

Lovely restaurant with real charm. Attentive waiters, nice relaxing music. A genuine buzz. We had suckling pig and beef filet both cooked well and nicely presented. Our 6 year old had a hamburger and they swapped in fries for her - she loved the meat. For dessert we had chocolate fondue which was really good and crema Catalana which was nicely done. The real selling point is the gently buzzing atmosphere in a beautifully renovated mansion. Would certainly go back!

The menu is based on local products, traditional cuisine prepared ampurdanesa have passed through the sieve of modernity.

Reviewed By Rurina - New York City, New York

This was by far the best restaurant we dined while our stay in Palafrugell.
We picked this restaurant originally because they participate in the sea urchin festivity menu during January to March.
Reservation is definitely recommended as this place is pretty small.
Ambient is very romantic with candle light and dimmed scene.
We picked their full course meal and it was a lot of food.
sea urchin dish was delicious, appetizers were also very well presented and tasted as good.
Server was very knowledgeable, she did not speak English though so you should be prepared to translate on your own with app or go with someone who speaks Spanish would benefit you.

La Llagosta

Reviewed By Cookiemonster171 - Knutsford, United Kingdom

For some reason, we've always shunned the Llagosta in the past and haven't eaten there for about 15 years, always preferring the Hotel Llafranch.
After our rather unfortunate experience at the latter recently, we decided to give the Llagosta another go.
What a pleasant surprise!
Firstly, the service is absolutely excellent. It was fast, efficient and everyone was pleasant and always had a smile on their faces, which is sometimes at a premium in these parts as regular visitors will understand.
The food was excellent and great value. My pork cheek was simply the best I've ever had. It's usually braised but this looked like it was roasted. I was slightly worried that it might not be tender enough but it was like eating a fillet steak. And the cost? Just €12-50. Amazing.
The whole meal cost just over €30 per head including wine which for great food, great service and a great view was brilliant.
I definitely won't leave it 15 years before I come again!

Platillos

Reviewed By asha - Warwick, United Kingdom

We have been coming to this restaurant for about 5 years and are very regular visitors to Begur. It would be inconceivable for us to come to Begur and not eat at Platillos. We enjoy sitting at the bar in this tiny restaurant. The flavours are amazing and the service is great. It's not the cheapest "tapas" but i bet it will be amongst some of the best you will eat.... book ahead as they turn away many people every night! Only went this past a Sunday but already can't wait to go back!
