The surprise has not been the use of flowers, but that the base cooking is very good and flowers are used to bring a subtle touch of flavor and aroma that is very well fitted. We just had a couple of set lunches and paid 40 EUR for both, but the experience has been good enough to want to come... More

We had dinner here one night while in Girona. It is NOT in the Old Town which is too bad because most tourist will unfortunately miss out on this special place. However, it's an easy 10-15 minute walk from there and it's well worth it. The kitchen is in the center of the restaurant so you can watch the cooking... More

The best meal I have ever had. It blew my mind and changed my perception of food altogether. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The restaurant staff are very friendly, and the atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. It all makes for a spectacular dining experience. Also, they paired wine/beer with the courses, which was fantastic. If you are in Girona,... More

Better yet, most of the choices on the menu were either gluten free or could be altered to be so. Gary's salad arrived--a wonderful mix of... More

A bit of of the way but worth the trip for a menu where flowers play a key part. Very friendly staff who could not do enough for our group of 14. Unusual but good food particularly enjoyed the varied starters.

Arriving in Girona unable to speak SPanish and more importantly unable to speak Catalan caused a few problems. Friends had recommended the restaurnat but on arrival it was clear that they weren;t really prepared for slightly ignorant English only speakers. THeir solution was simply for the head chef and owner to come to our table and explain the menu in... More
