This is a restaurant which is a stones throw from the Platja. No sea view due to the Dunes but there is no denying its a relaxing spot for lunch. We took moules marinere which is a tomato based garlic sauce in these parts and grilled sardines (slightly small portion) with a crisp white wine and tomato bread. Although pleasant... More

This unassuming looking restaurant turns out to be a wonderful restaurant where it is a pleasure to dine from their typical Catalan menu. It has a relaxed beachside atmosphere, for it overlooks the flower covered dunes, and the staff are very peasant and friendly. We had evening meals there and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Maybe we are just used to good places, but this was objectively no good. I doubt these were real calamares. Yes I do know what a common substitute is. The coffee was served in cold cups. Would never visit it again.

I have left a review of this restaurant from last year but I feel the need to update it. I couldn't understand why people would give it a bad review, until now. Remember years ago when we used to go away and we all took a phrase book with us to help with the language. Well I find going to... More

This restaurant has a great location behind the dunes at the end of Pals beach called Platja El Grau. The area is more upmarket than Pals itself and the staff in this restaurant seem to be interested in attending properly only to those they perceive will give the bigger tips/have the most money. The outside terrace is the best place... More

We have been going here for 10 years. I enjoy it more out of season when the owner has a bit more time to chat to us. Fresh fish and the most wonderful grilled cuttlefish. On a sunny day its nice to sit under the canopy looking out to sea, a cold san Miguel in hand watching the windsurfers do... More

My wife and I just spent a month in Platja de Pals, spending time on the beach, and stopping for drinks at Les Dunes on the way home. On our last night, we dined there, sitting on the deck and enjoying the view over the dune to the sea. We started with salads - generously sized portions that were more... More

Most beach area places are pretty mediocre, but the food here was surprisingly good. Had the menu del dia on the deck overlooking the beach. Delicious green salad with lots of veggies, perfectly prepared very fresh grilled Merluza, desert and wine for 15e. Other choices as well. Came back another evening with my husband for dinner and had grilled langoustines--a... More

Disappointing. Waiter could not tell the difference between the 2 paella's they have mentioned on the menu card. Orders were served at different times; pizza's 6 to 7 minutes before the paella. Spend about 2 hours in this restaurant, but were served by 3 different waiters. According to some other guests this should have been one of the best paella's... More
