A true gem!

This place is well worth the visit. Every single dish we had was exquisite. Better come with a good appetite, especially if you want to sample the menu. Great to make it part of a day trip and visit nearby lake Banyoles or medieval town Besalu.

You would never think there even could be a restaurant in the small village of Espinavessa. In the typical style of a Catalunya house you find a very pure natural kitchen. Good (local) products, nice plates, gentle service. Price/quality it is more than excellent.

You would never go, probably in the village of Espinavessa. Unless you want to go La rectoria. Quiet and elegant environment, minimalist and cozy. Great food and very good service. Will return, for sure.

We are great enthusiasts of the contemporary cuisine of Catalunya and we have been lucky to eat in the major landmark restaurants in the region. This is a real find and we have just had lunch there for the second time in a week. It is tucked away in a tiny village and you could pass by the front door... More

Food good. Service extremely bad. If they had told us in a pleasant way that they did not have time to serve us would have helped a lot, or at least given us a smile. To get a dessert, we just had to give up. I hope that the money I left was enough to cover the bill as we... More

It is a wonderful place to eat. If it was placed in a big city it will full everyday and it will be difficult to make a reservation, but if you travel across this aerea its worth to get there and enjoy the acurate cuisine they always offer at a more than reaonable price.

I had hoped to eat at La Serra in St Esteve de Guialbes with a group of friends but they were closed for their holidays. In an attempt to find another typically Catalan village restaurant in the area I stumbled across La Rectoria. It's located in a quiet, pretty village and whilst you might expect to walk into a bit...
