Menu has changed since last year and seems a little more upmarket. Enjoyed views from the first floor over the bay which is nice. Food was different, Argentinian pork bites, duck brochettes all nice tasting. It would appear that quite a few places are making an effort to appear more upmarket. Service was good and we had a good meal.

L'Escala seems to have a big problem in that when you go to pay your bill there is extra added on for vat or daring to eat or drink on tne pavement! This does not happen in cafe de la riba. Pints are 3 euros the cheapest in the Platja de la riba. Irish, English, Scots and Welsh go to Cafe de la riba for your pints. Anywherw else will rip you off!

We first visited here about 4 years ago. At that time the clientele seemed mainly local and the menu was chalked on a board in Catalan. We were initially disappointed when we found laminated menus in 4 languages and tables full of tourists. However, we recognised many of the same staff. They still keep the glasses in the freezer and many of our favourite dishes were still on the menu. The only barrier to 5 stars is that the service is a little too efficient leaving us feeling a bit rushed.

Visited here with friends in October and opted for the set menu at 13.90 euros - what an amazing meal - bacon with goats cheese toastie, lamb chops and then chocolate and coconut tart. Absolutely stuffed by the end of the meal in a very good way. All the party had a really good meal and enjoyed the food very much. Lovely view and excellent all round experience. Amazed at the amount of food given the price
