Description: Our restaurant is open to our guests as well as visitors that are looking to enjoy a good meal in a warm and charming setting. It is open on weekends-from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon-, holidays, and long weekends. We offer a la carte menu, as well as table d'hote meals. In August, the restaurant is open every day for lunch and dinner. There are meal options for groups and special events that can be customized to your taste and needs. We can hold your events on weekends and holidays, as well as during the week. In our restaurant, we specialize in traditional Catalan cuisine: grilled meats, roasts, cold cuts, various salads, and grilled fish, among others, using always ingredients of the hightest quality: fresh fish, meats from La Garrotxa, etc. We are specialists in calcotades (meals based on grilled green onions served with romesco sauce for dipping, followed by a barbecue of grilled meats) for groups or families, from December to the end of March. Guests are welcome to visit our open grills in the back to see how the calcots are cooked. The setting of the restaurant is superb, surrounded by 4000 m2 of gardens and an extensive outdoor parking area. There is a large playground with a sandbox, swings, and a slide, so that kids can play while parents enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee and dessert. There is no need to worry, as the playground is easily supervised by parents from within the restaurant through the window. We also have football goals and a volleyball net. All in all, the restaurant at l'Arcada de Fares is a warm, relaxing environment, ideal for families with children.

We used this restaurant as part of stay in the associated apartments.The set menus feature local produce and dishes and include wine and are of excellent quality, with generous portions. The restaurant also serves breakfasts and both for dinner and breakfast is open to passing trade as well as residents. There were in fact a surprising number of non residents having breakfast, given it is some distance from the nearest town, Besalu. Further than you'd want to walk anyway!
Recommended, well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Very easy to get to just off the C-66 between Besalu and Serinyà. Lovely hosts, warm welcoming and very helpful. The food is excellent. Traditional Catalan food, salads, fish and amazing barbecued meat. Never had a bad meal here, and have been many times. A large selection of good local wines is available as well. The prices are excellent!

You will only find this restaurant by recommendation. It is about a kilometre up a track off the Figueres to Besalu road, near to Besalu. It is family run and family friendly. Beautiful Catalan Sunday lunch,well served and reasonably priced. It is far removed from the Costa Brava most tourists experience and better for that. Clean stone walled dinning room and a good choice of food.
