Pilar is a nice familly restaurant hidden at the first floor, like an appartment. The personel is very nicee and the restaurant quite cosy, as if you were eating in your own living room. We were there for takeaway Paella. They were served in real pans, fresly cooked, and absolutely delicious. To try absolutely.

Pilar's Restaurant is the unique and ancient restaurant in Cadaques , more than 30 years spun God meals . In my opinion is the best sea food paella . The menu: 25€ included starter, main, desert and wine is a good election

Not sure who wrote that because there was no one in the restaurant when we went and it stayed pretty empty all evening (past 10.30 pm). It's a family run place and Dad seems to be the chef, mom serves. Food was... More

We stumbled on Casa Pilar a few years back and since then have gone back every time we're in Cadaques. Family feel, great paella at a good price (20€ menu).

Casa Pilar is on the second floor (or, as Europeans say, the first floor) so it's easy to miss. DON'T miss it! I was drawn in by the scent of garlic being sautéed in a sofrito and followed the mouth-watering fragrance up the stairs. Inside I felt like I was in a family home---the mother serving, the teen and tween... More

We had our first meal there. It is run by a family and the food was excellent. We had paella and wonderful deserts. My husband had lemon gelato that was made inside a real lemon.
