A bartender down the street recommended this to us, and we were glad he did. I had Bacalao in a delicious sauce. My husband’ entree was also good. Great service. These people clearly take pride in their restaurant.

This restaurant was exquisite. The laconic owner was a friendly and attentive host. The food served was as good as it gets. The atmosphere was great and I cannot praise it enough. Strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Also well priced.

In winter very few places in Besalú seem to be open, and this was the first one we came across. Being December it was very quiet - we were the only diners at first. The decor is quirky, with colourful mosaic covered pillars, old movie...More
