“Overrated, try another one!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2014

We had dinner at this place and we were not impressed with the food, expensive for what you get. The waitress got me a different dish than the one I ordered. The meat was the same but of course the price was higher, I only realized when the bill arrived. When I told the waitress that I didn't order that, she didn't apologized for her mistake. We were the only ones at the restaurant so no excuse for a bad service.

“Great food great town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2014

Besalu, a fantastic medival town in the Garrotxa area of Catalonia. And here you'll find this classic restaurant serving a wide range of local produce. Great location, you can sit inside, or outside on terrace with a terrific view to the old bridge. Lunchtime is peaktime, but a reservation is usually not necesarry.

“Another great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2014

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a(nother) trip to Besalu. We had dinner at Curia Real and it was wonderful. We chose from the table d'hote menu and had a terrific meal. Wine was included - a bottle of local rose, which we really enjoyed.
The quality of the food, the lovely surroundings (the view of the medieval bridge floodlit at night is just stunning) and the excellent service all combined to make this a lovely celebration.

“Worth revisiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2014

Revisiting this restaurant 2 years after our last visit was a great idea! Superb service, amazing food, fantastic value and the outstanding view of course. This is one of the best value lunches we have ever had, we took friends this time and they were blown away by the whole experience, they were especially impressed with the beautifully presented Cod Carpaccio and kept referring to it as the benchmark of excellence during every other meal of the holiday. Prices have not risen since our last visit and the standards are certainly maintained at the highest level.

“Great atmosphere in a special location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2014

Our booking for a family group was handled very pleasantly by email a few weeks ahead and the welcome was very warm and considerate (my parents have mobility issues). Service great and it was good value for money. The best part was sitting outside looking out over the river. ENjoy it
