Perfect and personal service

Went with a group of friends during a congress in Girona. Had been recommended this among a handful of others. Nice and cozy atmosphere, and the personnel truly makes you feel welcome. And what´s just as crucial, the food is excellent, and the price level is reasonable. Try this one, if you travel... read more

La Penyora used to be, in my opinion, one of the best restaurants in Girona. However, today I left disappointed and angry. Service was completely clueless, slow and amateur for lack of a better word, completely unprofessional. The food, which once had been traditional and exotic at the same time, was at best average. Servings were ridiculous, and my main... More

Both make you feel great. We fall in love with their food and magic setting! so much that for the 2... More

We happened upon an absolute gem. The menu was varied and we were delighted with our choices. The hostess and chef were engaging and interested. The staff were tolerant of our terrible Spanish and very helpful. The ambience was perfect and we felt very lucky to have found La Penyora.

Me and my partner ate here after searching for somewhere off the busy streets, I had the steak tartar and my partner had the rabbit. We were served a selection of appetisers on the house, and we had the house rose which was delicious. Opted for dessert, lovely but not as described. Really welcoming hosts would recommend.

We had a meal at LA Penyora on the 02/05/2015, it was fantastic, except the desert which was supposed to be apple tart but it had chocolate all over it. Apart from that it is well worth finding and visiting the restaurant, you have to book

We ate here on October 2nd, after failing to find the place in the almost totally dark streets of the area in the bight before. It is a small place, but the service was warm and welcoming, and the food was fantastic. The owner really cares about the food he serves. This is another place I'd like to return to!

La Penyora is probably, in my humble opinion, one of the best restaurants in Girona. The meals are creative, yet fresh and tasty. Staff is friendly and the service is very personal and kind. A great place to eat out, specially outside in the terrace in summer. Great place for couples and romantic dinners, not really child friendly.

This restaurant is up a side street behind the municipal building. We had ate there on many previous trips to Girona and we were very lucky to get an early seat without a reservation. The owners were present again and very hands on as usual. The staff and the good are excellent.
