The location was awesome. To be at a restaurant with the name purgatory right behind the church! The food was good typical Catalan. The wine was delicious and the service very friendly. A very good 'away from the crowd' inside tip! Eat with the locals. You have to try the pan de tomate and cheese variety...

Great little gem restaurant. We ate outside in summer - just by the side of a church. Very relaxed. Simple, country food. Nothing fancy. But very tasty and wholesome. Friendly service. Good value,

This is my favourite restaurant in the whole of Catalunya! It doesn't presume to be much, but it's in a beautiful location - just around the corner from the Basilica - and very atmospheric. In winter, it's cosy and intimate, but in summer is when it really shines - tables fill the little square it's set in and it's a wonderful place to eat al fresco. The staff are excellent - friendly and welcoming - and the food is great, with fantastic salads, and a great selection of cheeses, cold meats, salads and patés, all washed down with local wines and cavas. My recommendation is to go as late as you can - 10.30 or 11 is a great time to enjoy the cooler night air of the Catalan summer.

Beautiful little place in Vilafranca. Not sure if it is open for lunch but we went for dinner and it was fantastic. The menu is basically choices of salads and then served breads, ham and cheese afterwards. Its not really a three course meal sort of place. The salads are full on meals and I'd recommend the salmon or goats cheese salads. We were stuffed afterwards. The hams and cheeses were superb as well. Waitress understood English but having a Catalan person with you is a big help. It is a chillout and eat slowly place , but we were in a bit of a hurry and they were really quick when we asked. Cannot fault this place
