We arrived in Girona late for lunch, after a long hike in the mountains, and were glad to find somewhere still open at 3pm as most Spanish restaurants are closed between about 3:30 and 7:30pm. However, it was still busy and we received quick and attentive service. The Menu del dia is in Catalan, but the waiter managed to explain... More

Went to Txakala for lunch in a beautiful day in beautiful Girona. Perhaps my expectations were high, after visiting spectacular restaurants and tapas bars in Barcelona, but my overall experience was regular at best. When you find yourself putting salt in a pulpo a la gallega is because there's something wrong. The place is great and the service is very... More

I wasn't that impressed with this place. I had really high expectations and the tapas didn't really live up to them. The atmosphere was nice though.

We liked this restaurant a lot, the choice and variety of dishes was superb. So many dishes I had not tried before. You collect your food via self service and pay according to the number of plates/skewers you have had. Word of warning, if you have a very large appetite it could get expensive, but it's quite reasonably priced otherwise.... More

The Catalans said "pika-pika" - a lot of different kind of foods in small portion and you can choose what you want - fishes, meats, cheese, ... very tasty and fantastic. Very good steak and nice red wine. Very good choise for all who would like to tests the Catalanya´s foods.

They have the biggest selection of pintxos in Girona. Well presented and nice for a dinner with friends. They have also a restaurant area well served with more elaborate dishes of fish and meat.

This restaurant was exactly as you would imagine your perfect tapas bar. Great selection of good food, replenished often; staff were very helpful and it has a good selection of wines and some interesting local beers. First class and great fun. Iain
