Four of us had an excellent lunch here. It's a rather traditional restaurant in a building by Eifel of tower fame. It's in an area with a number of restaurants in the heart of Palamos. Seafood is the speciality and what we had was very good. My favourite Catalan fishdish is baked with a tomato sauce and potatoes. They did... More

Four members of my family ate at La Gamba restaurant and were extremely satisfied about the quality of the seafood and the service that we received. The location is great as well, overlooking the Palamos Port.Even though the prices are on the high side the quality of the food and the level of service justify the prices.Highly recommended.

A classic seafood restaurant in Palamos. Very good seafood and paellas in this nice tipycal catalan restaurant. They use only the best products to make their menu, which means that you only have what is in season. Specially recommended are the gambas (prawns) and all the fresh fish. Professional service. Not cheap but fair quality-price relationship.

The food quality is good, but we have to realise that we are in Palamos and all restaurants have fresh food from the sea. The dishes were great, we had a menu that costs arround 30€ per person. Menu's definition says that it would be a "fast" meal, not more than 1 hour and a half as much. But in... More

I would choose somewhere else in the town as the meal we had of mussels prawns and calamari was disappointing. The service was ok but the quality of the food did not meet expectations or price.

The restaurant was recommended for good gambas, but we were warned that it is expensive. The gambas were good, but i.e. 40 Euros for 6 medium sized Gambas is just too much. They were not that good😀And the service was not up to standard either. All in all I think this restaurant is overrated and overpriced.

Service was faultless. Food was outstanding. The little touches made for a really interesting evening (gazpacho and fish mousse amuse bouche, and after the cake and fizz to celebrate the festival Saint John). Really recommend.

Most definitely this restaurant is that .....service was good and the host described the food and wine so eloquently we couldn't wait to savour both the food and wine . Well was such a disappointment and though the place looked and had the appearance of a great restaurant it certainly fell down on the food element .. Such a pity... More

Enjoyed our Sunday lunch in this charming restaurant. Excellent choices, bit limited if you don't want to eat fish though. Decor is a throw back to a bye gone era but the quality of the decor is well maintained and the napery etc is first class. Service was first class, professional & friendly but you were allowed to get on... More
