Booked this restaurant/bar/cafe for our first night in Girona. Glad I did as we would not have found it otherwise. It turned out to be a very good choice. Loved the way the place was presented decor wise (obviously very much to do with literature), the music in the background, the staff, the tapas dishes and the wine that was... More

We spied this place near our apartment a few nights before we had the chance to try it, and we were not disappointed when we finally stopped by for a wine. It was humming with locals on Christmas Eve and the man who served us was a true gentleman. The wine selection is quite extensive and it's definitely more like... More

We loved Cafe Context during our stay in Girona back in February of 2016. The family owned spot quickly became one of our favorites. The tapas and ambiance was fantastic. We would highly recommend stopping here during your travels.

We went to have dinner one wednesday night with my partner. The food was good and from my point of view expensive quality-price. The restaurant was almost empty and the waiter wasn't very attentive to us. The local and the area is nice, but I think I'd just come back to have a drink.

This is a really nice cafe/restaurant.It is located in a small square and it is quite pretty but the extra beauty comes from having live music. The day we visited which was Sunday they were preparing for a live event in the same evening. Inside it looks pretty and it is decorated with taste. They have a large bar.

We visited on a cold wet evening and took the set menu. What great value for money. There were a few tourists, however, the majority were local people in for a family celebration. The 3 course meal with a bottle of wine cost around 40 euro for two. Will return next year. It was certainly busier when the sun cmae... More

Context is a great place to go to enjoy a relaxed evening or a tapas lunch, food is delicious and staff efficient. Every now and then they have poetry reading, live music, book publishing’s... and other very well chosen events. They have a vast variety of good wine and beer, and the prices are reasonable. Great atmosphere and decoration to!
