Fairly average food and sporadic service could really be much better but the chef needs to simplify dishes,fish just needs simple prep and cooking.

Visited El Balco for the 2nd year in a row, experiencing their Gastronomic menu. It was just over €50 each, which was for 6 courses, with bread, wine and water included. Good value for the money, but just short of excellent for my personal taste....More

Traditional food, good location, ok stay overall. It's a "traditional" restaurant with a good service and regular price per quality. There are better spots around but still its ok.

Before being seated we walked along the balcony for a breathtaking view of the Costa Brava. Then we lunched, starting at about 2:30, and, even though we were pressed for time, could not move from the table until 4:00. The meal was fantastic.
