Paella restaurants in town
El Tursia is not on the beachfront, but the value for money makes you forget about it. Their menu: less than 18 euros.
Also noteworthy is the perfect customer service, they explain each of the dishes on the menu.
One of the best seafood paellas in Tossa and the leek cannelloni and the fideua are highly recommended.
Homemade desserts, a little pricey, and the coffee ice is coffee ice.

Calle Pola, 7
The space: it’s beautiful, don’t be fooled by its small front terrace, the one at the entrance. Once inside you will discover its authentic charm.
The service: perfect. Attentive, friendly and without overstepping the bounds of trust. Very efficient.
The food: The “arròs del senyoret” is very good, and it gets better if you let it rest. For us the best paella in Tossa de Mar. You can also try the cimitomba. The desserts are very normal.
The price: it’s a bit more expensive than it should be for rice dishes, but if you look at the prices around Tossa, it seems to be the norm.
The aromas of fish, seafood and Cimitomba are evident by day and by night in the streets of the old town. In Tossa you don’t know where to look or what to choose, there is so much and so good. Even the souvenir shops have character, and it is hard to walk through the streets without being tempted.
Cimitomba is a seafood dish that fishermen and cooks have preserved, some in the boat and others on the restaurant menus. A relative of the fish suquets made all along the Costa Brava, the name comes from the fact that when it is time to add the aioli, the cook turns the casserole from the bottom upwards, saying “al cim i tomba” (“to the top and turn it over”).
Tossa de Mar is a walled town on the Costa Brava. It has mountains and beaches, with a great seafaring tradition benefiting from the free trade treaty enacted by Charles III, by which its merchants crossed the ocean to go to market in the Americas (18th century).
It is normal to find good fish and seafood, not to mention good paellas in Tossa. Being close to the sea ensures quality and good prices in the local restaurants. You can eat the best paella in Tossa if you follow the list of paella restaurants in Tossa de mar.
The town in the Selva region offers variety and quality in its paellas. In addition to the restaurants mentioned above and their paellas, we love the typical dish; the Cimitomba.
