“Unexpected excellence”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

Desperate for a restaurant that was actually open on the 2nd of January we wandered around Banyoles looking for something to eat. Then we discovered La Magrana. They were about to close but welcomed us in. Great menu. Creative cooking. Good quality produce. Smart decor. The desserts were terrific especially the ice cream from a local co- operative. La Magrana is run by a lovely couple who clearly are passionate about what they are doing.

“Great little place by the church”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Really good find. Small restaurant with great inexpensive food. I had the goats cheese fill tart which was delicious. The curry was also amazing- not your usual curry- a little different. There is a charming garden at the rear. The wine is reasonably priced too. Going back tonight .

“Innovative and Excellent Chef”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Even though they had a large group coming, they made room for us. This was definitely a popular spot for locals. The owner was so stylish and fun and she jumped right from hostess to chef. The food was excellent and very innovative. It felt like we were in a gourmet restaurant in New York!

“Innovative menu, pleasant service”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We enjoyed the lunchtime 14 euro menu here. The lentil and crayfish salad was excellent and very well presented. Tuna steak melted in the mouth and pork with pineapple was memorable.
Great value, friendly service, excellent food, innovative menu, an ideal spot for lunch.
One small complaint is that we decided to sit outside as it was a lovely September day and the chairs are pretty uncomfortable.
A great change from formulaic menus, good choices.
