We visited this restaurant for lunch during early September. It is a small restaurant and there were only 6 tables in the main part. There were only 3 other tables that were occupied so the atmosphere was not that of a bustling restaurant but the food was superb! The portions are equivalent of a fine dining restaurant in London but... More

We went here on the recommendation of our tour guid and because we were a large group of 12 they put us in this back room which looked like board room. It had zero ambiance. As a designer I appreciate effort and trust me when I say ZERO effort was made to add ambiance in this room. Part of the... More

My husband and I came here for dinner. The wine was delicious, the food was well presented and so tasty, and our host was very friendly and helpful. Our best dinner in Costa Brava! Highly recommend.

When we entered the restaurant seemed very nice, we went with our 1month son and immediately got placed in this other back, hospital looking room, full of families. So in this restaurant they separate families as if they were a pest. If you want to make a family room at least have things for children to play... Not an isolation... More

Extremely good service. Very friendly and everything explained to us in English. Food was also excellent. Very limited range of choices but the pork and the fish of the day dish were both delicious.

I ate at Vicus on a slow weekday recently and on a busy weekend last year. Both times I had an outstanding lunch made of delicious small plates that reinvent traditional local dishes with a modern touch. I particularly enjoyed the arròs (the Catalan version of paella), one of the best I've had in Catalunya, but everything else was really... More

Sophisticated atmosphere, atypical for the Costa Brava. Great menu; my business partners all had other dishes and everything just looked superb.

What a gem. Great food, great service, charming location and interesting wine. Rice with squid in its ink, oxtail with lemon gnocchi, bruleed rice pudding, and limited edition xarello wine. Marvellous.
