Although very busy waiter did his best to find a good place for us. He saw we were foreigners and explained in English We enjoyed our evening and highly recommend the place. Even on a Monday it was hard to find a place without booking, so I recommend booking first.

This is a great way to try a variety of tapas.
It's easy to select the best ones off the buffet, and price is very decent, €1,60/ portion.
The atmosphere is friendly, and even though the staff does not speak English well, it's fairly easy to communicate.
The tapas was tasty, and what's great is that you can see what they look like before you pick what you want to eat ;)

This is a very laid back and popular restaurant with outside seating. You can order from the menu or try the buffet style tapas which is constantly refreshed and includes sweet and savoury. You basically go up as many times as you want and pay per dish. This tapas is tasty, fresh and traditional. Would not recommend for vegetarians unless they are happy with seafood. Excellent way to get a snap shot of Catalonian food. Approx 5 min walk from the old town.

We have visited this bar / restaurant several times and it does not disappoint. Although we have no Spanish or Catalan, we were still able to make ourselves understood and avoid any suspect "animal parts" which might be considered regional specialities. The food was simply great and was continuously refreshed during the evening, with extra hot dishes being put on every few minutes. The atmosphere was lively and value for money could not be beaten €28 for 2 including drinks. We're going back tomorrow.

Good basque restaurant in Girona. The tapas were awesome and cheap 1,60 €.
The dishes were good, maybe just a little bit too expensive to be in Spain.
