If you're staying in the village, you can go down to this restaurant and order food with a few hours notice. The chef will cook up the food on plates, wrap it up for transport and trust you to bring cutlery back the next day. We we're so impressed with the takeaway food, we spent a night there that was awesome! I suggest a visit to this restaurant when you're in the area, the atmosphere is amazing, food is delish, service is fast and friendly and portion sizes are huge!

This place was a real treat as I was running errands and realized time was about to run out on lunch. Lunch in the Emporda is from 1:00-3:00 usually. If you miss this window you could be out of luck! So I quickly headed into the historic walled city in the valley for a quick bite. There were a couple other spots filled with tourists but at Can Quel you heard the clatter of old school Catalan being spoken - all inside because the heat was too much to be any other place. While anything other then Castellano (Spanish) and Catalan was hard to come by, there is little that a good wi-fi, google translate, and a kind smile can't you through. This place cooked like my grandmother! The menu was 15€ and I had to roll out of there fully stuffed with a belly as happy as can be. This is a local pub, so not a fancy place, but instead a good old fashioned pub with home made deliciousness! Looking forward to stumbling in here again soon.

This is where the locals eat in this beautiful old village. The ladies just wanted salad but as the waiter said that they had snails I persuaded them to share a bowl whilst I had one for myself and how we enjoyed them. They came in great bowls, not your French six or twelve. Stewed with bits of pork, red pepper, onion and tomatoes, they were a real taste of Catalan food. Delicious. Whilst the girls enjoyed their different salads I had a very good roasted duck's leg. And all for less than your average uk pub prices.Very good value for money indeed.

10/10 best food we've had in three years of eating in the Costa Brava what can I say always pays to follow white van man lunchtime menu to die for. Catalan bean & fish starter / aubergine with mozzarella, duck or rabbit to follow.

We stayed in Ullastret for a few days last September and this was our regular spot for breakfast, lunch or diner. The staff are so friendly and patient with us as we try to learn a little bit more of the language every visit! The food options were great and they served lovely desserts. We will definitely be back for a visit.
