Excellent burger restaurant with tasty burgers, sandwiches, salads and of course beer. La Cerveseria (location here) has a large outdoor terrace and sun until the early evening. A burger or salad costs about 7 euros and a beer 3 to 4 euros. La Cerveseria is located near the harbor. 

Alba Restaurante

Alba Restaurante (location here) is located on Plaça de l'Església. It was not that busy in the restaurant so we were served quickly. The bread with aioli was delicious, but you can still taste it the next morning. They have all kinds of paellas here and something for everyone! For 30 euros you can eat here with two people.

Il Gelato

Il Gelatone (location here) is an Italian restaurant, for when you are tired of Spanish tapas. The pizzas and pastas are delicious and of course the tiramisu cannot be missed. A main course costs under 10 euros, the desserts are a bit pricey in comparison. 

Don't forget to take a look at the courtyard, you will be amazed!

Bonus: El Cafe de la Placa in Torroella de Montgri

Okay, this cafe isn't in L'Estartit, but it's definitely worth going to from L'Estartit. El Cafe de la Placa (location here) sits on a square, Placa de la Vila, in the middle of Torroella de Montgri. The burgers are are delicious! And that while I don't like burgers at all. Don't forget to order the Iberian ham croquettes, never had such delicious croquettes before! 

The burgers and sandwiches cost around 7 euros.
