Fodor's Review

One of the best restaurants below the Pyrenees, this Sant Pol de Mar treasure is a scenic 40-minute train ride along the beach from Plaça Catalunya's RENFE station: the Calella train stops near the door. Inside are clean, spare lines and a garden overlooking the Mediterranean. Chef Carme Ruscadella is a household name in Spain, with seven Michelin stars to her credit, and this is the main stage for her talents. Dishes change with the seasons, but picture vieiras (scallops) with crisped artichoke flakes on roast potato, or lubina (sea bass) on baby leeks and chard in garnatxa (sweet Catalan wine) sauce. If you're here for Sant Jordi, Barcelona's Lovers' Day on April 23, you might score a misiva de amor (love letter), a pastry envelope containing julienned berries and peaches.
