Time Out says

If you go to Ca l'Herminda, don't miss your chance to try their special rice dishes: broth of crab and lobster, shellfish paella and rice with cuttlefish.

In towns along the Costa Brava, especially in places as traditional as El Port de la Selva, you'll always find a classic seafood restaurant located close to the beach. Ca l'Herminda, which is made up of different levels, was once the cellar of a fisherman's house used for storing fishing tools. However, in 1963 with the arrival of the first tourists on the Costa Brava, the owners realised it was worth setting up tables and chairs where once fishing nets had been stacked up.

Don't miss your opportunity to taste the house rice dishes: broth with crab and lobster, shellfish paella, and rice with cuttlefish and langostines. All the fish and shellfish they serve comes from Port de la Selva (e.g, grilled prawns, sea snails au gratin with garlic, fried crayfish and lobster), apart from the various products not found locallly, such as the oysters, which come from France.
