The seafront promenade of Blanes is lined with many eateries and fine restaurants, serving locals and tourists alike. However, as in other towns it pays to find out which restaurants are favored by the locals.
We keep this article online for the many people who will, no doubt, be looking for Damajuana.
Damajuana is such a place. Hidden away in a narrow alley just off the main drag of Passeig Pau Casals, Damajuana draws a steady stream of Blanes locals and visitors-in-the-know who have come to prize the restaurant for its wonderful, freshly prepared meat and pasta dishes. Yes, excellent Italian food at the Costa Brava in Spain (or rather, in Catalonia).
Tastefully decorated, Damajuana’s warm atmosphere is further enhanced by the friendly service of the family that owns the restaurant.
And then the food! Even something as simple as Spaghetti or Lasagne Bolognese seems to have been prepared from secret family recipes.
There’s a fantastic selection of starters; generous portions which, accompanied by a bottle of fine wine, could even serve as a main meal.
The food at Damajuana is absolutely wonderful. If we were giving stars, Damajuana would get five out of five.
A tip: leave some room for desert. We recommend the home-made Dulce de Leche ice cream.

Note: An easy way to find Restaurant Damajuana is to walk down the main boulevard that runs along the Platja de Blanes, the beach fronting the old town. Walk in the direction of the harbor. At the end of the paved boulevard there is a stage, next to the monument depicting Sardana dancers.
At that stage, turn left and cross the street.
Then turn right, and after 50 meters turn into Carrer Camadasa.
