Let's enlarge on my review title, Ok, I couldn't believe that such a huge restaurant could thrive in such an out of the way location. I had no idea there'd be such stunning valley and mountain views. I was amazed by the extensive menu, the fast service, the fine food, huge servings and low prices. No wonder the place was packed on a Sunday yet running as smoothly as a fine watch. A couple of useful tips. Arrive early... that's 1.00pm in Spain. Be aware the serving portions are huge but the Staff are entirely happy to pack your leftovers into plastic boxes and then into a thick brown paper carry bag. They more or less expect it. If you're anywhere in this area you've got to try this restaurant. Incidentally, the restaurant is part of a very good hotel if you wish to stay overnight.

Fonda Rigà is bucket-list experience. This family-owned restaurant offers innovative, modern Catalan-themed cuisine that is creatively prepared and presented in a mountain view setting that is stunning. The sons that manage Fonda Rigà studied at the Girona Hospitality and Tourism school where the famed Roca brothers of El Celler de Ca'n Roca also studied and it shows! While not pretentious, it is warmly welcoming and will give you a dining experience that you will savor and remember for a long time. The flavors and presentation are exquisite. And they are Celiac-friendly!

We stayed half board at the hotel. The evening meals were as good as anything we have had anywhere. So much choice and you really needed a good appetite as the portions were gigantic. The staff were so so friendly and most were all the same family. We were sad to leave such a beautiful spot and the kindness of the owners. Already planning the next visit

To be honest, there is not enough adjectives to descrive this restaurant. Although it is far from the closest towns, it should be a crime to visit the area and miss it. Traditional catalan cuisine, afordable prices and fantastic views.

Excellent food with excellent views. You can't ask for anything more.
I recommend the "civet" (a savory stew) and the "milfulls de patata esparracada amb salsa de ceps" (potatoes and "butifarra" with a very tasty mushroom sauce).
