First of all, and before any other explanation, we want to apologize for your bad experience at our place. The fact is that yesterday evening several circumstances met together and caused this uncomfortable situation: I, the owner and manager, had to attend an important personal...More

We visited during a recent stay in Girona and unfortunately just felt that the food lacked something compared to the other places we dined. Location is great as it’s set in a small placa not far from the cathedral. There were a few other restaurants...More

We had a nice evening here dining on a good selection of tapas, all of which were tasty. Pumpkin soup was lovely as were chicken skewers. Worth a visit.

Bar is made "artistic" with literature decoration, there are pages on the ceiling etc. However, the atmosphere is far from bohemian bar. I was writing in my notebook and drinking a glass of cava. When my cava was finished I was asked to leave because...More

They offer a combination of bar, good music (sometimes live, performances, philosophical encounters), books, paintings and a terrace with very competitive prices, even an economic tonic gin. Apart from all this, there is the option of 30 different wines (per cup)
