Food - original. We had a shrimp green been salad, nice dressing. Mains - pizza/lasagna dish with meat, spinach "pizza" (not your typical pizza.) Both very rich due to the cheese but still tasty. 7/10
Service - despite being in old girona most staff did speak English but they tried and the host translated the menu for us. 4/5
Atmosphere/location - amazing! Like out of a movie. Right on the steps outside an old church, you would never dream of eating at such a location. 5/5
Value - good value for the atmosphere and casual food 4/5
20/25

My experience here involved me finishing off my friend's pig cheeks and rolling out as they were so delicious and I couldn't let them go wasted. Also try the Mel i Mato (Honey and Curd)- delicious. Food is rustic, decor is traditional Catalan- liked it as created a great atmosphere. Service was efficient and laid back. Wine typical of area and good value. Overall experience very positive (mol be!)- I would recommend strongly.

This restaurant has a wonderful setting, BUT that is where it ends, the staff were actually fighting with each other in front of the patrons & food could only be described as third rate. Pasta & cheese on toast & five slices of tough duck with a dried prune as the only accompaniment is a meal you can live without. After 6 weeks of traveling in France & loving our food this place was shameful. There are far better restaurants in Girona to be enjoyed. Try "Vinil" down the road if you enjoy good food!

We visited for lunch a few days ago. We can often find our way around a Spanish menu but in Catalan we had no idea. The waitress was delightful and said she would come back in a few moments and translate for us.
She explained every dish (and there were lots) in English, even saying things like "it tastes like shepherds pie."
The food was very nice (and different) and the restaurant was very full of locals (always a good sign).
The pudding menu was translated by a different girl. All in all a perfectly good meal in a lovely building with nice, helpful staff.
