We enjoyed a gorgeous meal here. I had, to start, goats cheese with roasted red pepper on toast followed by slow cooked pork cheek with sauteed potatoes and vegetables and then a creme catalan, accompanied by a nice rose wine. My partner had the steak which looked amazing. Cosy, friendly and cooked fresh. Would return and recommend.

Staff is nice. However, the food was no good. From the watery pasta to yesterday's reheated meet. I felt robbed. I would not recommend or return. The reason we went it was that every other restaurant was fully booked. I wonder why.... I put one star becouse the staff working there was nice

While strolling through Girona we stopped for lunch at this lovely restaurant. The place is quaint and well appointed. Excellent fixed price menu that includes your appetizer, entrée, and dessert. There were so many good options in the menu that it was really hard to choose. Excellent value for your money. On top of it all we got the outstanding... More

A small, intimate restaurant in the old part of Girona. We found this by chance by reviewing the published menu outside the restaurant. This was without the most attractive menu we saw in the area with many attractive options for both the meat eating and vegetarian parts of our party. Having said that we were very lucky to get in,...

We chanced upon this cosy restuarant run by 2 after our walk down from the catheral. What attracted us is that "most of our dishes are freshly prepared".. Very good value for money. Portion was generous and delicious ! Definitely worth the patience and €...€10pax for weekday Menu Dia.

First time at this restaurant and I explained them about my vegan choice. They prepared me some veggies really tasty. Staff is helpful, restaurant is well located and everything was correct. Nice place!

We found recommendations in the Rough guide to Spain and the day menu for 12 euro was very good. Stuffed pepper and eggplant with meat were excellent. Was not busy in November

First of all, food is not bad. Soup is even good but... The local is too noisy and a but uncomfortable.

We were staying nearby and were attracted by the variety of choice which is not usual for the meal of the day option. Small intimate restaurant and nicely finished. We had scrambled egg and the spaghetti startes. Both very good. Princess Sylvia had the stuffed peppers and I had the meat and augberine, really tasty mains. Cheesecake and melon for... More
