A treasure in the center of Villafranca de Penedès. The restaurant sits on the top of the market with a simple setting. Exceptional fresh products cooked with the great energy, creativity and sympathy of the chef. Unforgettable lunch! You have to stop and taste !

We were fortunate to find them open on Sunday afternoon at the traditional dinner time, on the primary Catalan holiday. We enjoyed the entire Chef's Tasting Menu, from the pate with toasted slivers of black olives at the start to the pear compote with white chocolate ice cream at the finish. At the end, well past the 4 PM closing... More

A very creative menu with tasty dishes. The signature dish of canneloni from rooster was suberb! The restaurant has quite an extensive, local, wine list. For about... More

Exquisite quality local food cooked with a mix of tradition and modern style. The restaurant is placed in an old market which has been adapted and makes a really nice athmosphere.

There has been a few occasions where I didn't call and they had no empty tables so it's always good to call beforehand. The location is great. It's an open kitchen restaurant with great atmosphere. The staff are a bit stuck up or unfriendly but perhaps is because they don't want to bother you. The food choices are limited but... More

Sometimes you don't want to choose and you only want to be surprised for the choice of the chef. That's why we love the tasting menu of El Cigró d'Or. You just seat and relax and wait all the delicious dishes, one by one, eating and savouring all the tastes and flavours. The style of cooking is essential, basing to... More

When you walk into the restaurant you see a shelf full of cook books. That's always a good sign that the chef is innovative. The staff are courteous and happy to serve you. The food was delicious, especially the baby octopus with asparagus, and the chocolate and orange dessert was to die for! The prices were a bit high, but... More

The wonderful Parès Balta winery following a wine tour. The place is totally unexpected from food to decor. Reasonable prix fixe for 14.5€. Hard to pick fav dish because all the courses were lovely. What an unusual find in a small town . Best of luck in the future... I hope we are lucky enough to to return
