'The Balcony of Calella' offers fabulous views over the beautiful Costa Brava town of Calella de Palafrugell
With a name like El Balcó de Calella (The Balcony of Calella), it's easy to imagine just what fabulous views this place offers; indeed the panoramas over the lovely town of Calella de Palafrugell have inspired local literary luminaries such as Josep Pla.
It belongs to the Hotel Sant Roc, and serves signatures dishes that use fresh ingredients bought from the local market, all of which are enhanced by the amazing surrounds such as the beach of Port Bo and some of the most Instagram-friendly spots in the Costa Brava.
We recommend trying a rice dish ('arròs') or noodles ('fideuada'), although the fish, tartares and veal ('vedella') are also great choices. If you can, it's worth going there during the week to try their well-priced set lunch menu at a time when there are much fewer people. Ask for a table by the sea and discover what a fantastic Costa Brava location this is.
