La Proa is a seafood restaurant but it also presents more elaborate dishes.
La Proa might seem like just another seafood restaurant, and while that is one of its specialities, it also has more depth, which is somewhat hidden but comes to the fore in particular in the weekend set menus, with dishes that are a tad more elaborately put together. It's all seasonal Catalan cooking, but created and presented with style, featuring dishes that come and go from the blackboard - such as squid stuffed with wild mushrooms; cannellons with cod brandade; cold terrine of anchovies and piquillo peppers; artichokes with beans, asparagus and cuttlefish strips; and raviolis of vegetable with prawn tails.
On weekdays there's an affordable set lunch menu that seeks to follow the same philosophy, and regulars are a mix of workers on their midday break and couples who occasionally treat themselves to a quality mixed grill of fish and shellfish. La Proa is located just opposite the Sant Feliu de Guíxols fish market, which means that the oily fish (which is what the local fishing boats catch) is as fresh as it can be. The rest of the fish selection comes from the port of Palamós.
