We enjoyed a late lunch here after our visit to the wonderful Dali museum. The modest front of this restaurant conceals a very large dining room and a beautiful terrace. We were happy to eat outside in spite of the rather overcast skies. The set lunch menu had a wide variety of Catalan dishes to choose from. We struggled a... More

I stumbled upon this hidden gem by accident, but so glad that i did. Having consulted TA for good restaurants in Figueres, Catalonia, I only found L'Ou d'Or while wandering around an area of Figueres unknown to me. I now realise that TA had been misinformed that this restaurant was in Figueras in Asturias! However, the food was great as... More

We dined here prior to visiting the Dali museum, which is only a short walk away. I had chosen this restaurant from reviews for our group of six; and from the front it appears very modest. Our group looked worried. However, inside it is like the Tardis, and opens up to a large 'wow' room at the back. Service was... More

I went with the local U3A group for the Spanish speakers to practice what they had learnt. The Truiteria L'Ou d'Or publishes its daily menu on its web site www.loudor.com/ in Spanish and Catalan. The restaurant was easy to find and we parked on a meter around the corner surprisingly easy for Saturday lunchtime. It is something of a Tardis... More

Although we spend a lot of our time on the French side of the Pyrenees we happily drive the fifty miles into Figueras just to go to the L'Ou d'Or. We have never been disappointed by the food which we rate highly nor by the ambiance which is delightful. Don't expect silver service but you can look forward to a... More

We (6) chose this restaurant from other reviews here for dinner following a visit to Dali's museum. We arrived a little before it was open and chose to have a drink at a bar nearby to wait. The outside of this gem doesn't look anything special but once inside and to the rear it opens up to reveal linen covered... More

A short walk from the Rambla but nothing much to look at from the street and no-one immediately visible when we went in we followed the gentle murmur of people eating. After passing a number of covered and well laid tables we were met by a uniformed waitress who confirmed they were open so we followed her. There must be... More

We have eaten in this restaurant several times and each time it has been very good. The lunch time menu at around €13 including wine and water is exceptionally good value. The menu with approximately 10 starters and 10 main courses changes daily. In common with France starters tend to provide the vegetables of the meal albeit with fish or... More

My lunch at l'Ou d'Or was outstanding. The restaurant is pretty and a pleasant place to be. There's a garden but I haven't sat there yet, that's yet to come. I ordered the menu del dia on a weekday, choosing cheese canelons with a pesto sauce. It was so good, I was sorry when I finished. My main course was... More

We visited L'ou d'or when we went to the Dali museum. The restaurant is very pretty with a lovely patio and atrium. The food was good but did not live up to the setting. My guess is that Figueres has better choices. My starter was barely cooked stalks of leek wrapped in ham(not iberian ham) and had cheese melted on... More
