Just WOW! What a great lunch we enjoyed at this fabulous restaurant. Hard to describe the highlights with so many tasteful dishes. Every single dish is perfectly balanced, creative and well prepared. The setting is beautiful and the service is very attentive. Nice wine pairings...(of which also some nice local selections), and also the small "olive oil tasting" is a nice touch. Special mention to the mobile "cheese museum" of the maitre. What a beautiful selection of cheeses with a generous selection of local cheese. The blue cheese which was created in collaboration with the Toni Gerez is irresistible, one of the best cheeses I've ever tasted. Thanks for this great experience! Only small suggestions for improvement would be to be mindful of the pace of the dishes. We typically eat on the faster side but even for our taste the pace was too fast. A dish was even served when 1 guest was on the toilet. Other than that, highly recommended and we will definitely visit you again next year!More

I can't say otherwise, but if you're in the area and like culinary food, you should treat yourself here. The restaurant is located on the castle's second floor, and on the first floor is a casino. Through a staircase, you come out on the restaurant's...terrace, where the tables with beautiful linen-covered are waiting for you. You have a beautiful view of the pond and the castle's garden from the terrace. Breathtaking, and the many storks make it even more romantic than it already is. Host Toni Gerez, known from El Buli and the spin-off Mas Pau, guided us to a nice spot at the edge of the terrace with perfect views. It was a nice reprieve after once having a great night at his Mas Pau restaurant. Our servers came to introduce themselves; I, unfortunately, forgot their names, sorry, but both the young man and the French but now Spanish lady was outstanding. We did not hesitate and chose the 14-course tasting menu, including wine pairing. Everything, from start to finish, was a feast for your taste buds. The menu and the wines are very well priced, and the level and the many dishes are well worth the price. We enjoyed it, and I can recommend it to everyone.More

Michelin starred dining in a castle is a rare experience and I was fortunate enough to visit as part of a hosted wine tourism visit to Emporda. The ground floor of the castle is a casino (apparently unique) and you climb the stairs to the...first floor restaurant which is a most delightful and luxurious setting. The dinner menu is a 14 course tasting menu and allowances are made for any dietary issues. The food is high class throughout, each course beautifully presented and with nice flavours and textures. It starts with a tasting of bread with four different locally sourced olive oils and goes from strength to strength. Each course is carefully prepared and described but the highlight is the Artisan and Fermier Cheese cart - probably the largest selection of cheese I have ever encountered (I made it 65 in all). This is the passion of General Manager Toni Gerez (formerly of El Bulli) who explained they normally have around 300 cheeses in stock! Accompanied by seven wines from the Peralada company range the meal was the undoubted highlight of our trip and when I am next in the area I would make a point of returning. Quite magnificent.More

The La Parilla Buffet at Peralada has been a highlight of our summer for a number of years. This year however it failed entirely to meet expectation. The outdoor dining experience under the stars with the castle backdrop was non existent. This year the buffet...was housed in a new semi-permanent structure completely devoid of any style, atmosphere or view. The buffet selection seemed much less than previous years. Only carbonated drinks were available for children, our 12 year old grand-daughter could only drink water all night. Our particular waitress was brusque and unfriendly, and it took 3 attempts to get our bill right, she got angrier and angrier each time, so no tip.More

A little disappointing. Presentation superb. Service excellent.

Service at arrival and view of the Castell and the garden is always a pleasure for itself. The interior of the Castell is also great and decorated with a superb mix between classic, grandiose and simple, modern. I have to admit the in the first...five minutes I thought that the service people are snobs and that they have issues that we came with kids. After five minutes I totally changed my mind as they were all super friendly and helpful and attentive to all of us. Total misjudgment from me at the beginning. Sorry. We had the lunch menu for a very much affordable price for a 1 star michelin restaurant. And the different plates with different tastes and creative ideas were absolutely convincing. From snacks to fish .. to meat ... we have been very happy. Also the deserts were convincing. We will be back for a nice dinner in this fantastic restaurant.More

Having dined (and thoroughly enjoyed the food ) at Mas Pau on several holiday visits we were delighted to learn that the chef had a residency at the casino restaurant. We went on a busySaturday evening, dining out side as it was warm. The price...(79 euros) for the tasting menu was exceptional value and most of the dishes (too numerous to mention all individually) worked well, especially the fish dishes. The duck was disappointing being a bit on the bland side and the pre desert was neither a palette cleanser nor pudding. The outdoor setting was spoilt by spotlighting which cast shadows over the food. A more intense light projected upward into the white canopy of the parasol would have given a more diffuse light to illuminate the tables. For a Michelin starred restaurant the gravest sin was two of the pieces of cutlery were dirty and my wife cleaned them on the serviette ( dishwasher water staining?) the third, a knife, was noticed by the waiter an replaced. Five fincas Peralada wine was excellent value at 19 euro. Would I go again - certainly - great value but we did not think it deserved a star so soon. It is - not yet up to the standard set at Mas Pau.More
