“Pure charme, no rush, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

It's a place to be, with no rush, do not expect grandiloquent things, here everything is simple, Slow, nice and good. The food is very cosmopolite for being girona, very good products and nicely cooked. The supervisor/owner was extremely nice. I will definetely come back.

“Friendly and relaxed restaurant in the heart of Girona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

A friend and I had asked for a restaurant recommendation from the receptionist of our hostel. We'd cycled 100 km that day in temperatures up to 40 degrees C. We didn't want to walk far from the placa catalunya so Mon oncle sounded ideal. A relatively new restaurant that was family run and trying to make it's mark in the city that is home to some of the finest restaurants in the world. They certainly pulled out the stops for us. One of the owners even had time to discuss wine selection and happily chatted away 20 minutes with us. The staff were attentive but not intrusive and the food was first rate. I heartily recommend Mon Oncle to anyone looking for a reasonably priced restaurant with a friendly vibe.

“Disappointing kitchen and service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Off to a great beginning with lovely starters however things went seriously downhill afterwards. Slow service with poor communication and it took forever for the dishes to arrive. Not a single word of apology. By the way, we ordered from the menu so nothing that'd take forever to be prepared. Avoid!
