The view from the terrace while munching on a great burger definitely adds a nice touch to this burger joint. Definitely recommended, even if just for a beer in the sun in the afternoon.

The location is excellent with a great view over the bay of Cadaqués. The service is very friendly. Unfortunately we cannot add to the praise about the burgers like others did here. The burger no.1 (beef with foie and caramelized onions) for 12.45 Euro had a juicy patty but tasted completely bland. The burger no.5 (pork with caramelized onions and... More

Great location to enjoy Cadaques harbour/beach front. We chosen this restaurant because of its great location and view that we get. We were there after lunch but the crowd is still heavy, we ordered steamed mussel, grilled sardine and Boquerone on toast. Food was great and mussel was very fresh but overly salty which salty level can be reduced. If... More

Had dinners inside as the tables on the waterfront were a bit breezy. Only a few tables inside and was very busy. Service excellent - friendly and efficient. We both had burgers the choice is that or tapas. The. Urges are homemade and thee is a very good selection Excellent value too - would return.

We stopped off here for a lunch one day whilst touring the area on motorcycles. The food was very nice the Tapas were fresh and hot and tasted wonderful. The location is as close to the sea as you can get and offered a fantastic view across the beautiful harbour. Really worth a visit.

It's great to eat by the sea...hamburgers & tortilla are ok but the croquetas are a joke! I'd advise to go there to have a drink before dinner because at sunset the light over the village and, particularly the church is amazing and this is the best place to enjoy it. Concerning food, .....don't expect too much.
