We had a set menu starting with cream of tomato soup and tuna carpaccio, paella then homemade icecream. The food was delicious and fresh...also amazing value. The restaurant is gorgeous and intimate it can be found up a narrow laneway away from... More

Where everything in Cadaques seems focused on a sea view, this restaurant does not have one and indeed, is tucked away upstairs in a house on an alley up a little winding street from the main Cadaques strip, easy to miss. We had a terrific fish soup (for 2, split with my daughter), very fresh and delicious; we were the... More

Stumbled across this going round Cadaques and found it delightful. Comfortable with very good service and price. The food was really good and nicely presented in a professional and polite way.

We were given a table on the small terrace which was really nice. The food was excellent and there was a fish daily special. The food was excellent and so was the wine. We were unsure what to pick but the assistance from the manager helped us to pick a great choice. would definitely go back

All the previous reviews are accurate - visit this place for great seafood, good service and an overall positive dining experience! We called to book, not realising it was not open. The restaurant called back to enquire if we had been trying to contact them and arranged our reservation. Food was of very good quality, well cooked and served perfectly.... More

We love Cadaques and always make a point of eating at Es Balconet whenever we are there. Small place with only about 40 seats. Incredible fresh fish, good service and very good wine list. Easy to have fabulous dinner with three courses and a bottle of wine for well under 100 Euros.

We spend a great time nice service and food. Fresh fish and really tasty, sea flavour in your mouth. Tuna Carpaccio and homemade croquetas as a starters, nice presentation both, and suquet de peix (fish) as a main course. You have to eat for 2 people for 1 is too much. Xocolate fantasy as a desert, they play with many... More
