To launch the new restaurant section of our blog I’ve got a wonderful experience to share about a fantastic restaurant on the Costa Brava.
Being by the beach I wanted to eat some seafood and found a restaurant only five minute walk away called Galicia Mar.
We weren’t sure what it was going to be like but as we strolled up to the restaurant through the window I spotted a huge platter of seafood that two women were sharing. Now that was what I wanted to eat! We went in and were seated by a lovely waiter and ordered the platter. Whilst we waited the owner and head chef came over to our table and asked how we were, he joked about a photo of himself on the wall with an enormous lobster – I can’t remember how many kilos he said it was but it was huge.
The platter arrived and at 41 euros it wasn’t disappointing – we had half a lobster, clams, mussles, prawns, langoustines and about 4 different types of fish. I was stuffed!
Once finished the chef came and asked us how we had found the platter – and after a bit more banter he whispered something to the waiter. 10 seconds later he arrived with a bottle of cava – for our hotel room he said. I had been trying to speak to him in my broken Spanish and so my immediate thought was – ‘oups did I order this without realising…’ We asked for the bill and double checked and to our surprise it was indeed a gift to us.
If you are ever in Lloret de Mar you definitely need to pay this restaurant a visit.
