Port Lligat Fisherman’s lunch

Port Lligat is a small bay right next to Cadaques and famous for being where Salvador Dali lived for many years of his life. His wonderful sprawling amalgamation of fisherman’s houses is now a museum and open to the public.

Not quite so well known is that the last two remaining fishermen of Port Lligat offer an informal lunch and dinner service right on the pier meters away from the water. It is not a restaurant and you will not find it on Tripadvisor, think of it as a “pop-up” table run by two fishermen who like to cook. Several journalists and even food critics have over the years tried to publish but the fishermen always refuse. It is a combination of this “anti-marketing”, the unique location on the water and the freshness and quality of the food which make this a sought after and favourite of our clients.

Places are limited and only one group for lunch and one group for dinner is catered for. Bookings are for a minimum of 10 people and maximum 16 people. Less than 10 people and you pay the price for 10. Places should be reserved as far in advance as possible, especially for summer where they are often fully booked six months in advance.
