This is one of the old train stations on the now Green Route cycle path. They have recently turned what was the side car park into a great enclosed garden with things for kids to play on which looks lovely. The inside restaurant is nice and cool, but they have a great patio garden shaded by parasols and trees out... More

I am not sure why people have scored this place so high. I went for lunch there on Wednesday, and the food was adequate, but nothing special. One of my party had pork and chorizo which was so fatty that he barley ate any of it. Service was okay, but felt rushed.....They cleared plates as each person finished rather than... More

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch at this restaurant. We ate in the courtyard which was a wonderful setting. The service was very good and the food was excellent. We shared the shoulder of lamb after starters of anchovies and cuttlefish and finished with crema Catalanas. This restaurant is on the map of cyclists and walkers as it is located on an... More

We first came across this place a few years ago following the Olot-San Feliu railway at the time we regretted having already eaten. We went back the following year at the start of a holiday and had a lovely meal. 3 years on and this place still meets the Mark. The food may not be as cheap as some of... More

The place is nice, maybe sitting in the patio inside is better than outside because the road is quite close but anyway it is a quite and fresh place to have either lunch or dinner. The menu is not very big, they specialise in meat although they always have some fish to offer which is actually very nice. The price... More

Situated in a former railway station La Font Picant is a hidden gem that offers delicious authentic spanish cuisine and a service with a smile in a great location. Highly recommended.

Located in a former small trainstation outside christina d'aro and managed by the same owner as sa marinada in san feliu de guixols. If you pass the restaurant you won't think it's this good. Also great food, friendly service and special ambiance. The only big difference; grill and meat rule.

We'd been to the Font Picant in its old incarnation, and mostly in the depths of winter when we hugged cosily round the log fire. The food was good but not exceptional in those days, the main attraction being the fact we could eat in an old station (boy, I wish that railway between Sant Feliu and Girona was still... More

A fresh, stylish oasis beside a nice cycle road. Good food and service. Nice athmosphere. We would go there once again.

There are places that take us back to our childhood: summer evenings, picnics by the spring, your first bike... La Font Picant is one of those places. An antique restaurant in an old railway station, a meeting point for the people of Sant Feliu, Santa Cristina... A beautiful little corner with plenty of heart. With this simplicity of form we offer a selection of meats, grilled or spit-roasted over a wood fire. We use only 100% natural products, cooked on charcoal from les Gavarres, obtained by natural means. We have chosen to pursue a policy of respect for the environment and local sustainability.
