Els Pescadors

Fresh seasonal produce is the essence of Els Pescadors’ cuisine.  Everyday the sea and land provide the raw materials that decide what their menu will be.  Their chefs buy fish as the local market, mushrooms from Osona, meat from Banyoles, and fresh duck foie gras from Coll-Verd.  The dishes on the menu offer the customer both quality and quantity.  The menu changes everyday depending on the fish they’ve been able to buy at the market, seasonal produce available at the time, and the new dishes invented by the executive chef.  The daily menu can be viewed on Els Pescadors website.

This restaurant is located very close to the Mediterranean Sea, next to the port. Their cuisine is based on fresh fish and seafood, caught nearby and transformed into a feast for the palate. But not everything they prepare is 'surf' material. Some of their 'turf' dishes include the best quality cheese and Iberian cold meats. This restaurant is a good place to sample the full range of Spanish cuisine, with the sea just a few steps away.
