Two friends who spent many of their summer holidays in Cadaqués decided to open a bar with a Cadaqués vibe that serves up tapas and small dishes to share. You can get great fish stew, or fish fillet cooked slowly and served with plenty of sauce. Experienced in the world of taverns, Xanc and Meli apply the formula that makes their fish dishes such favourites to other culinary delights. The menu, while brief, is tasty and well executed: cod with garlic mousseline and ratatouille, cuttlefish with meatballs tinted with squid ink, tripe, and pea stew. In a world of bars dedicated to fried food, tataki, and ceviche, at Xanc i Melithey, they're big fans of dishes you can dig into with a spoon. For dessert, try the gorgeous home-made tarte Tatin or the ‘tapones de Cadaqués’, which are little sponge cakes sprinkled with sugar.
