On Tuesday we had to pick up a parcel from the neighbouring town of Pineda de Mar. Like most of the towns in Maresme, Pineda is joined to Calella – the conurbation from Barcelona up the Mediterranean coast towards France goes on for miles. Most towns are half a dozen or so streets deep, between the sea and the mountains. We thought we’d profit from the excursion by having lunch somewhere different.
Restaurante Marisqueria Pepet is a stylish fish restaurant, which is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary this year.
I took one look at the prepared fish
along with the fresh fish and meat fridges and knew we’d eat well here.
There were quite a few things I fancied on the menú del día, which was reasonably priced at €15, for 4 courses including wine.
We ordered the house vi rosat, which came in a carafe, but was nonetheless, a very drinkable wine.
The bread is worth a mention here – it’s a lovely pa rústic with a good crust.
We both ordered the same pudding, assortit d’fruita natural, taronja, meló i pinya (assorted natural fruit – apple, melon and pineapple). Our waiter had us sold on the dish, when he mentioned that it came with spiced rum!
Naturally, I had a carajillo at the end …to give me the energy to walk home.
Our bill came to €36 including coffee – I can definitely envisage coming back here!
