Palafrugell’s cuisine

The Mediterranean offers a bunch of white meat fish with sea flavor: pagells (pandora), sards (white seabream), julivies (rainbow wrasee), serrans (rock fish), escrita (skate), escórpora (scorpion fish), llobarro (seabass) as well as sea food, mainly shrimps and different kinds of lobsters.

The Mediterranean offers a bunch of white meat fish with sea flavor: pagells (pandora), sards (white seabream), julivies (rainbow wrasee), serrans (rock fish), escrita (skate), escórpora (scorpion fish), llobarro (seabass) as well as sea food, mainly shrimps and different kinds of lobsters. But the sea urchin, in Palafrugell called garoina (cover picture), formerly eaten next to the sea after being caught in the rocks by groups of friends, has become an essential dish of our current cuisine and is considered the star figure of our sea gastronomy.

In Palafrugell, you can also try other local gastronomy made with vegetables grown by peasants in the neighboring towns of Llofriu, Ermedàs, Mont-ras or Torrent, mixed with poultry and meat from the region. Not many places have with so many raw materials to elaborate their dishes. That may be the reason why many typical dishes from Palafrugell are not found in other towns, like for example Es niu, chicken with lobsters, octopus with onion, black rice (arròs negre) or shrimps with sausages.

One must add to all of this the personality of our cooks, touched by the tramuntana, in love with their jobs and generally gifted with a creative ability that brings them close to artistry. Palafrugell’s kitchen, as some gastronomic guides say, justifies the trip.

La garoinada gastronomic campaign in winter, starting in January, and Es niu journeys in autumn, are the best occasions to try all the top restaurants in town, offering special gourmet menus.
