Visited with family, including 2 young children. Great friendly service and nice local feel to the place. Very fresh seafood, we had grilled hake (looked lovely) seafood paella (local specialty which tasted awesome). Fair price and I would recommend to anyone wanting to try the local seafood. Will go again.

Thank Adrian H

This was a secret revealed by a local of Arenys de Mar. A very simple road restaurant at first sight, but one of the best places for fish and seafood in the Maresme area, north of Barcelona. In our first visit, a few years ago we were advised by a patron in the next table to order the big scale scorpionfish ("escorpora"). Mr. Poncio brought the fresh catch to our table and suggested us to have a superb starter of baby squid with seasonal artichokes. Then, while the main portions of fish were baked on an incredibly buttery bed of laminated potatoes, they offered us the second starter, consisting of the impeccably fried small remaining pieces of the venomous species. Then the main fish came as probably one of the best we have ever tried (Baske country restaurants included). Not only the primary quality of the catch but also the classical, respectful, optimal cooking. And the accompanying potatoes were the final stair to gastronomic heaven. Excellent white wine and a unique local créme milfeuilles desert (ask for "coca de Llavaneres") completed a memorable experience that we have repeated several times since then always with consistent excellent results. Do not miss this place if you still care for plain quality meals from time to time.

A good example of catalan cuisine. The restaurant is specialized on sea food since it is a couple steps from the local fish market. You can see the fishermen boats from the window of the restaurant. The fish is the local fish from the catch of the day. It is well prepared and served. There are some catalan specialities in the menu. It is advisable to try those first. If you are chasing an atmosphere but well prepared food it is one of the best places to eat in the district.

Fresh salads and home-baked bread. It started so well, but the main courses just fell flat. Very little flavor or creativity. After all it was a good atmosphere and great night.

Simply served , the best fresh fish you can find in Arenys de Mar. Coocked with traditional receipts, fisher style.
