This is a fabulous seafood restaurant on the seafront in Villanova I La Geltru!! It's a great way to eat - there is a counter with seafood on display, brought fresh from the market and you choose the fish you would like - and then they cook it for you. We chose sprats, gambas and pelaya (which is a small flat fish) and the dishes they created were absolutely delicious!! It's a relaxed light and bright environment and the service was excellent. Add great value prices and you have a wonderful dining experience. You have to go!!

Chose paella and it was certainly a bad choice. €26 and hardly any fish 6 mussels, 4 prawns and a little calamari. Very salty. The restaurant is however very popular and busy. You choose the fresh fish and then they cook it for you. Sadly we had to queue for ages at the fish display.

You order before sitting and having a look at the menu.
67 euro for two rices, two grilled calamari and a bottle of White vine.
The food is very good but, in our opinion, too expensive for spanish restaurant!!

When you enter the restaurant, you choose the kind of fish you want to eat (or choose several small portions). Than you choose a table and meanwhile your dish will be prepared. Its very fresh and caught the same morning by the local fisherman.

We are staying in the hotel above the restaurant and have eaten in the restaurant twice now. Villanova is a great place for good quality restaurants serving fresh local products at very reasonable prices. That is apart from here. First meal was lunch and a paella for 2 which was lacking flavour and hardly any seafood but an elevated price in comparison to the competition. Tonight we went to celebrate a special day by eating the presented fresh seafood. We choose a really nice big piece of Tuna, razor clams and scallops. We asked how each would be cooked and the accompaniments, which we were told was boiled potatoes with the fish. Sat down and they served the bottle of white wine without chilling and no bucket of ice or chiller sleeve. The razor clams and scallops were nice but Luke warm if that and no bread to soak up the juices. We had to ask and were charged for both bread rolls, no other restaurants do this. The tuna was served cut into small pieces so didn't resemble the lovely large portion we had chosen. Nothing else served. We had to ask where were the potatoes and they turned up a good 5 minutes after we had eaten the fish... All 3 slices of boiled potato for 2 people! No apologies! Crap service, value for money and quantity. We talked to other people in the restaurant and they had similar poor levels of service and value for money. This is a real shame as the fish is excellent but you pay a premium and for that you should expect a minimum of value and service. By far the worst restaurant we have tried in Vilanova. Incredible when you consider we are staying in the hotel for 9 nights. I actually wanted to put a zero but that's unfair as the fish is fresh.
