We went for dinner but hadn't booked but were lucky to get a table as within about 10 minutes, the place was full! Reasonable food but very large portions so be hungry! I counted 18 langoustines in my starter!! I had the shoulder of lamb but it came with just tiny chips, no vegetables. It was not my favourite restaurant... More

During our stay in L'escala, one of our regular restaurants was closed. When checking for an alternative, a local person pointed us to El Gotim. This turned out to be the best advice anyone had given us in the neighbourhood for years ! In the meantime we have visited the place 3 times, with different parties and different food ordered....

We were getting married nearby so had a lot of friends coming out to stay and needed somewhere to get together. A friend recommended that we speak to the owner Davide, and he invited us to take the downstairs room and suggested a set menu of 26€ per head. What a bargain! There were 30 of us a and everything...

We visited this restaurant last year and it was brilliant so we just had to go back. Sadly we wish we hadn't bothered and one can only hope that the chef was off on Sunday because clearly the person the cooked our meal did not have a clue on how to cook fish or even check it was fresh. I... More

Escala is quite touristic, this restaurant is somewhat hidden in the streets of the ancient port. The atmosphere is wonderful, you're sitting in some kind of a cave. Service is very good, excellent white whine (malvasia). We had some excellent first courses and second courses, the desert was also very good. We found this a superb way to finish our... More

This place is in a small alley just of the busy center but one of the best in L´Escala and affordable . Interior is a bit rural but nicely decorated . Will go there again

Every time we pass by this restaurant we are tempted to go in by the lovely cosy traditional stone dining room, bustling atmosphere, and interesting sounding menu. Sadly the three times we have visited we have not going the food to live up to expectations. Everything serve with chips and quite greasy.

Thank Kennedyz
