We revisited L'Esculapi during a short break in February and enjoyed the improved menu, food and service so much that we went back every night! The food really is superb and there is so much choice that it's difficult to be bored with the menu. We really can't wait to return in April!

Our very knowledgeable guide chose his favorite lunch spot for us, L’Esculapi in the picturesque village of St. Marti d’Empuries. To start us off, we were served a delicious seafood appetizer that gave the impression... More

We just love this place! The food is always good whatever one chooses from the extensive menus. It's good value, too and the atmosphere in the church square is just wonderful - even in the raging thunderstorm that occurred during this latest visit. The rain lashed vertically upon the large parasols but the professional staff, Simona amongst them, appeared undaunted... More

We've been coming to St Marti for a number of years - L'Esculapi always seems to be busy, often when the other restaurants are empty. Food is consistently good with a wide selection including tapes - menus are in a number of languages. Pizzas are huge, pasta dishes are very generous and a good wine selection - only downside is...

The atmosphere at St Marti is quite magical. We used to visit here 30 years ago when our children were small. Very little has changed. The service at this restaurant is friendly and prompt. The staff are very smart, there are male and female waiters. The food is cooked perfectly, we have been 4 times over the last two weeks... More
