A small, intimate restaurant in the old part of Girona. We found this by chance by reviewing the published menu outside the restaurant. This was without the most attractive menu we saw in the area with many attractive options for both the meat eating and vegetarian parts of our party. Having said that we were very lucky to get in,...

We chanced upon this cosy restuarant run by 2 after our walk down from the catheral. What attracted us is that "most of our dishes are freshly prepared".. Very good value for money. Portion was generous and delicious ! Definitely worth the patience and €...€10pax for weekday Menu Dia.

First time at this restaurant and I explained them about my vegan choice. They prepared me some veggies really tasty. Staff is helpful, restaurant is well located and everything was correct. Nice place!

We found recommendations in the Rough guide to Spain and the day menu for 12 euro was very good. Stuffed pepper and eggplant with meat were excellent. Was not busy in November

First of all, food is not bad. Soup is even good but... The local is too noisy and a but uncomfortable.

We were staying nearby and were attracted by the variety of choice which is not usual for the meal of the day option. Small intimate restaurant and nicely finished. We had scrambled egg and the spaghetti startes. Both very good. Princess Sylvia had the stuffed peppers and I had the meat and augberine, really tasty mains. Cheesecake and melon for... More

On our trip to Girona we visited a couple of restaurants. El Cul de la lleona was the best. All was perfect. And a day menu is really cheap. Only 10 € on weekdays (starter, main course, dessert, bread and a glass of wine). My wife had a pork cheek, she said it was delicious.

We really enjoyed our stop here for lunch . We choose the menu of the dia and the choices were great and the portion sizes very generous. Quality was good and the service was super friendly. Really nice staff added to a very cute setting made this a nice spot to stop whilst wandering around Barrio Vell which was lovely.

We stopped here by chance and enjoyed great food and wine for a very reasonable price. There was plenty of choice on the menu, the staff were friendly and there was a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Highly recommended!
