Sitting outside in the perfect springtime weather, I had a lovely baked fish with carrot and potato. They were so flavourful, I did not want to add even a drop of lemon. The bread was fresh and tasty. The olives were fresh...one type picante and the other, the green ones, perfectly brined and just a little crunchy. It means something... More

Girona has many fine restaurants and is a city worth spending some time in for just this reason. El Cul del Mon is one of our new favorites. A short walk along a pathway through woods behind the cathedral, it is well worth seeking out. Modern but traditional cuisine in a converted house at the edge of the woods. Highly... More

This restaurant is a good walk or a taxi ride outside Girona but believe me it... More

Best pork I have ever had in my life, it literally melted in my mouth. The rest of my group of artists were equally impressed from the first course to the dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant off the beaten path.

get ready to a good walk from the city center, and to a real great culinary experience. while we did not chose from the menu as we had a set menu for our quite large group, with salad appetizers and an excellent paella, everything was good tasting and cooked to perfection in spite of the number of customers, the place...

"The back of beyond" would be the translation in English of the name of this family restaurant, El Cul del Mon. Actually to be more accurate and colloquial I should use a different expression, but the word "cul" in English would not pass the publishing filters. But the reality is that Girona is not that big, and after a spring... More

Very warm welcome by charming and super efficient staff, we had pre-booked, but were still offered a table our choice in a shady courtyard surrounded by trees. A really well presented menu with a really tempting array of dishes made our choices difficult. Once we had ordered our first course came very quickly and in any case would have even... More

We ate here as it was recommended as one of few places which would be open on a Sunday evening. A short walk (10-15 mins) from Girona Cathedral, El cul de Mon serves fantastic food and wine in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. The friendly Catalan staff cannot be too helpful or courteous and were quick to provide cover from the... More
