We visited the salt mines and choose this Restaurant thanks to TripAdvisor an it was an excellent choice. Their eggs with fried potatoes are unique and the beef and the pig’ cheek stews were out of the ordinary. Great!

Took the set 3 course menu option. Huge servings of traditional basque food. Expertly cooked and presented by a lovely waitress in a very homely style. Nice wine selection. Best food in Cardona for us.

I expected much more for the menu and price. Dishes were undersize and under quality, but high priced. Space is great, so was a disappointment and a lost opportunity.

The restaurant is rated # 1 in Cardona. The food is very average, the service is not good, not the kind of an evening you can expect when you visit high rated restaurant.

Fantastic food in a very friendly, family-run atmosphere. The son-in-law of the owner (and husband of the chef) kindly translated the Catalan-language menu for us. Extremely good value at 15 euros for the three-course lunch. Pig cheeks were particularly good.
