We have visited this restaurant many times and it never fails to impress . The food is authentically Catalan and definitely for the adventurous palate ..dont come here for chicken and chips . I tried pigs trotters and sea cucumber last night and I am still reliving the experience . What beautiful and unusual flavours . This really is Michelin... More

Charming, quaint restaurant with good food, but there were several problems. First, the server (the owner I think) couldn't find the wine list. She proposed a local wine and we agreed but it would have been nice to have a choice. I ordered the grilled shrimp and asked if it came with a side dish and she said yes, either... More

We have been coming to this lovely restaurant for the past 29 years and each time it's a feast! The food is outstanding, so fresh and well prepared that we keep coming back. I must admit that we always let the lovely Montse choose for us, and we have never been let down. Ask to peek at her husband's, Pere... More

We visited La Xicra last Saturday along with a group of friends. We have eaten there before and have always found the food to be exceptional. Yet again we were presented with dish after dish of fine food, made from the freshest of ingredients combined artfully to be a feast for the eye as well as the stomach. The service... More

this little restaurant is difficult to find. Do not yet judge based on the entrance of the place. When you made this step you will notice it has a a great ambience, overloaded with painting and with a women's tough. The ladies who run the place, know very well how to serve local catalan ingredients. Do not expect a broad... More

My wife and I went to La Xicra for our 25th anniversary, hoping for a very special evening. We were not disappointed. It could not have been more perfect! With only one other couple dining on a late Monday night, it would have been easy to seat us at an adjacent table, but instead our very welcoming hostess brought us... More

We've been lucky enough to have visited this restaurant many times over the last 25 years... It has never disappointed, whether at lunchtime for just the two of us, or in the evening with a group of family and friends. I read Tudor D's review, and it's a pity he didn't enjoy a couple of the courses on the tasting... More

We have been visiting the Costa Brava for over 30 years and have always wanted to try La Xicra but my wife has never fancied it!! I wish I'd listened to her, she's usually correct, wives usually are. I was there alone last week and was determined to 'give it a go' I wish I'd listened to Mrs D. The... More

By using a Michelin App for my GPS we found this hidden restaurant. We were taken care of by a very nice lady who seemed to manage the whole thing. The restaurant was like an oldfashioned dining room in a private house, but the food and serving was top. From the outside the restaurant was not impressive. But don't give... More
