My wife and I visited here on a Thursday lunchtime, about 1:30pm on 7th September. They were almost full but they kindly split a table setting for six to accommodate us. We had the menu of the day - great variety of choice and good value - on par with the other restaurants at c€15/head. Lovely cosy setting in an vaulted arched room. Definitely recommend this place and will be on our regular places to visit.

This restaurant is a hidden gem of L'escala and never fails to impress us on every visit.
The staff and owner at El Gotim are very friendly and nothing is too much of a problem for them.
The restaurant building is set in a refurbished vaulted building that still has the original wine press positioned through the center, which is lovely to see.
Highly recommended !!

We went for dinner but hadn't booked but were lucky to get a table as within about 10 minutes, the place was full! Reasonable food but very large portions so be hungry! I counted 18 langoustines in my starter!! I had the shoulder of lamb but it came with just tiny chips, no vegetables. It was not my favourite restaurant but worth a visit.

During our stay in L'escala, one of our regular restaurants was closed. When checking for an alternative, a local person pointed us to El Gotim. This turned out to be the best advice anyone had given us in the neighbourhood for years !
In the meantime we have visited the place 3 times, with different parties and different food ordered.
The service is absolutely fantastic, very friendly, professional, perfect.
The food and drinks are great, my favorite dish is the "Black Rice".
The menu is small but offers a variety of dishes at a VERY fair price, mostly better than any of the "hyper touristic" places in town.
The surrounding is great, with only a limited number of tables, the "cellar-like" room is great for a nice dining experience.
Address 18 Calle del Doctor Puig Sureda
