There are places that take us back to our childhood: summer evenings, picnics by the spring, your first bike... La Font Picant is one of those places. An antique restaurant in an old railway station, a meeting point for the people of Sant Feliu, Santa Cristina... A beautiful little corner with plenty of heart. With this simplicity of form we offer a selection of meats, grilled or spit-roasted over a wood fire. We use only 100% natural products, cooked on charcoal from les Gavarres, obtained by natural means. We have chosen to pursue a policy of respect for the environment and local sustainability.

Kiva lounaspaikka - a nice lunch place

A fresh, stylish oasis beside a nice cycle road. Good food and service. Nice athmosphere. We would go there once again.

On recommendation of our bike holiday organizer, we stopped for lunch and found the restuarant to be charming in setting and decor. We sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed three share dishes in the sun, tuna salad, eggs and potatoes, grilled asparagus. Each was interesting and enjoyable. The waiters were friendly and obliging with our very limited local language.... More

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

Fresh decorations, attention to detail, lovely food - not surprising, by the very capable lady from La Taverna del Mar in Sagaro, (after being almost 'evicted') has proved her capabilities, supported by her very attentive, professional staff. Lovely outside area with mountain views, will most definitely be on our 'let's go back for a lovely meal' list ! Soon also... More

Description

There are places that take us back to our childhood: summer evenings, picnics by the spring, your first bike... La Font Picant is one of those places. An antique restaurant in an old railway station, a meeting point for the people of Sant Feliu, Santa Cristina... A beautiful little corner with plenty of heart. With this simplicity of form we offer a selection of meats, grilled or spit-roasted over a wood fire. We use only 100% natural products, cooked on charcoal from les Gavarres, obtained by natural means. We have chosen to pursue a policy of respect for the environment and local sustainability.
