Very slow service - despite big sign outside no tapas available because the kitchen was ‘too busy’ - half the terrace was empty. Agree with someone else’s review: tourist trap because of location - probably got the high scores by entering themselves.

Yes great views of the medieval bridge and the town but also lovely food served in a beautiful garden by smiling staff. Excellent value and a joy to eat here when the weather is good.

Varied, flexible menu - AND available from 7:30 night we went. Cheap and cheerful with good house wine for €5:00. Excellent service. Sit on far side of terrace for best view in Besalú.

Open on a regular basis and decked out in jousting replicas and pagentary, which is a bit gimmicky. Food okay but nothing special for Besalu, prices reasonable enough. service pleasant but a bit hit and miss.

Description
Besalú is a medieval village, famous for the micvé and the Jewish bath which was discovered in 1964. It is the first building of its kind found in Spain and third in Europe. It is an underground room and a pool that is filled naturally with water from a defunct fountain. Its function was the purification of the soul through total immersion of the body. Castell de Besalú is located in the former home of the village doctor. We are a family-style, our team is extensive but well-matched. For any queries Turn to any of us. We have two types of menu, home and the barbecue. Special dishes of grilled meat, toasts, pizzas, kids menu, paellas and tapas. We want all this to your liking.
