We (two retired couples) returned to Galan and as in previous years, had a most enjoyable evening meal. The pig's cheek, chips and egg with great red house wine was my choice again - it is delicious and excellent value for money as always. The service was attentive and the atmosphere buzzing. A great time was had by all. We will definitely return when we next return to L'Escala.

I love the atmosphere, the food, the hospitable and the always helpful waiting staff, all at a reasonable price. The steaks are consistently good quality and cooked to perfection. If I were to complain about anything, then the accompanying chips are slightly undercooked and stodgy

This restaurant is one of my favorite places to eat. Beautiful decoration that really gives it the charm and makes you travel into the town's history as a fishermen village. The dishes are home made and the products are of good quality. Definitely a "must" dish is the pig cheek.. i have eaten it in plenty of restaurants but none even compares to the one they will serve you here.
Other delicious options: anchovies, calamares fried and in salsa and canalones...
Enjoy!

The food and the service is really good but it could be an excellent experience if they had the option of payment by credit/debit card. It's annoying to go outside to find an ATM nearby.

And 50 years without technology. Make sure you bring cash but it's one of the few places in Spain that doesn't accept credit card. Food is average, not great. Good enough for a night.
