The desk clerk recommended this restaurant to us as a place that served more than fish and as her favorite restaurant! We took a chance and ordered the set menu - which was very reasonably priced and included a bottle of wine (decent wine I would note). This included multiple courses - and each and every item was awesome! Both... More

The location is lovely, staff very nice and altogether we had a good time. Sadly, the food is a bit boring and bland. It's not bad, but I wouldn't come back for it.

This evening my family and me have had dinner in this restaurant and although the food was ok the service was very slow and the price was so high for what we get. We don't recommend it at all, there're better restaurants in Palamós.

You know you are in for a treat when the menu is limited, varied and interesting. Service, food, and atmosphere perfect. Off the beaten track, a great find.

We have visited Por Babor a couple of times now and both evenings were quite good especially considering the price. Even if our waitress (both times) was a bit rough around the edges - i.e. not the greatest wine service, the food quality/price sufficiently made up for it. I heartily recommend either "menu". Although it says min. 4 persons, you... More

Three of us went here for an evening meal. Essentially the form is to receive a series of dishes to share between you. These come in turn. We had a superb dish of hreen tomatoes and bacon, tuna, scallops and rabbit croquettes. The service was good and including dessert and drinks it was a very reasonable 62 euros.

We had the recommended six course meal and it was exquisite! Each dish ~ salad, tuna, scallops, paella, and the others were prepared perfectly and the portions were just the right size (there were six of them!!) The dishes were perfectly paired with wine or liqueurs. We had time to thoroughly enjoy each course before the next was presented. The... More

We ate here and thought it was a great little restaurant. the owner is very proud of his food and served up a number of interesting dishes ranging from chicken and figs with a curry sauce to green tomatoes and bacon and a a beautiful salad. Each dish is something more than a tapas but small than a main so... More
