I ate at one of the tables outside here one evening in September. Admittedly, I did not try any of the wines on offer, but the food was good. I had both "esqueixada de bacallá" and "patates braves." Spain is famous for the number of different versions of paella served in its restaurants, but what is less well known is the variation in the "patatas bravas" served. El Museu del Vi served them with ginger sprinkled on the pink sauce – good and tasty.

A group of us, who were sharing a villa in the countryside for a week, were walking around the streets of Girona when hunger overtook us. We popped in to El Museu del Vi because it was there. It was our first taste of Catalonian cuisine, and we had some tasty traditional dishes. The food was good, though not world-class, and the service was okay (our server failed to bring a missing water glass, and we experienced a couple of other minor inconveniences). We shared our dishes with each other, so I had the chance to sample several entrees. Everything was fine. The servers emphasized the wines, which some of our group enjoyed.

This is a good intro restaurant. You probably won't get a bad meal here, and the location is convenient to Girona tourist sites. That's about it!

We had some tapas here. When we took a bite of our croquettes, they seemed cold.
After they went back to the kitchen, our bitemarks were still there. Rest my case.

The tapas list looks attractive but the food Is very dissapointing. This is the sort of place where you go for lunch and looks attractive but in the end you think you could have eaten better and cheaper elsewhere.

Made the classic mistake of being too hungry and taking a restaurant with pictures of food and menu in several languages. Will I never learn. The food was edible but Girona is full so many better places to eat than here.
