This restaurant is under new management and they have really expanded their menu. It is now possible to have excellent tapas and bocadillos. Today was my second visit and once again the bocadillo serrantino was delicious. It was freshly cooked and attractively served. I also had an excellent cafe con helo. The only downside is the tables and chairs out... More

Font Picant has come under new ownership. A major improvement is the terrace, which is much nicer now. But on the downside is the loss of its charm, which was due in large measure to the very kind and welcoming staff. The food was almost up to its previous standard, but not quite.

We had an evening meal here last week and it was fantastic. Great food, lovely friendly staff. We had stopped for a drink about lunchtime and liked the friendly staff and a quick look at the menu encouraged us to book an evening meal. What a delight! If you are staying in this area then a meal at this restaurant... More

Probably the best meal I had, with the most attentive wait staff, in three weeks of eating out in Catalunya. Leave your bike lock at home; they have plenty you can borrow while you're enjoying your meal.

This restaurant used to be a favourite with passing cyclists, sales reps and tourists. At 11.95 euros per head the Menu of the Day was cheap and cheerful. Service and atmosphere were great. Sadly its recently changed hands, gone are the tables where you could lunch outside or inside by the window to enjoy the viewing the passers by. Now... More

Font Picant is located in a former railway station next to what is now a cycle path. The food is of great quality, most vegetables from their own garden. Even something fairly mundane as calamares a la romana is special and better than anywhere else. The staff is most welcoming and helpful.

This is our favourite local restaurant when we fancy lunch out but don't want to spend a fortune. The menu del dia is simple but delicious the service is excellent. Very popular with locals. Free Wi-fi so a favourite haunt of passing sales reps, especially in winter. Also attracts lots of passing cyclists. Good for families - spanish kids are... More
