A tavern in the centre of Palamós, in the style of the good old days. They serve gourmet tinned food and excellent chef's specials
Have you ever thought what fishermen's taverns of yesteryear must have looked like? Well at Santiamén, in the centre of Palamós, you can get an idea. The clientele drink glasses of cava, home-made vermouth, well-pulled beers... and in between the sips, you'll often find someone singing a sea shanty ('havanera'). You can also try a selection of gourmet tinned food that is absolutely delicious! Such as sardines with smoked tomato, mackerel in a spicy marinade, and cod with garlic and oil. Classic tapas are also on offer: stuffed olives, cockles, and 'gildes' (anchovies, olives and spicy pepper, all on a toothpick). If you find that time has moved on while you've been enjoying your drink, you should take advantage to try some of the chef's specials for lunch, such as the 'salmorejo' (a cold tomato soup similar to gazpacho), steak tartare, and rice with squid.
