This restaurant was only 50 yards from Camping Escala where we stayed and was a great find so close by. The staff were very good with very limited English spoken, but the food was excellent and service great. The prices were very reasonable, particularly the menu del dia which attracted a lot of customers even in mid September.

Friendly people and the food was delicious. The menu was casual, but not excessively tourist-y. It seemed a very popular place with both visitors and locals

Whilst on a family holiday in the Costa Brava we hired a delightful soft top Fiat 500 and travelled along the beautiful coastline. At lunch time we arrived at L'Escala and by pure accident found ourselves parked opposite this restaurant. We thought the décor of the place was lovely, it was fresh and clean, tastefully decorated and had a very... More

Sunday lunch at Sotavent is very popular with the locals - they have a good fixed price menu and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.

The owner is very friendly, we had nice meals, the wine of the house is ok, prices are ok too. The people who serve supper are more than friendly. Just go and try it out by your selve, you will see that we have right.

Sitting on the terrace the place lacked atmosphere and the waiting staff just had that air of couldn't care less, there was an older gentleman, maybe the owner or manager who seemed friendly and was really trying to pull it together but was let down by the staff, the food was ok but the atmosphere maybe made it seam worse...

Cheerful service and a wide ranging menu should satisfy the whole family. The restaurant is opposite an underground car park and lovely children's park, so is popular with families. We tried the pizzas which were excellent and good value for money. There is a traditional menu as well.
