Great restaurant. Great food. Located right in the old part of the town and the views to the cathedral and to the river is fantastic. Reasonable prices.

We had lunch in the terrace of this bar/restaurant. The location is obviously very good at the foot of the cathedral and in the sun. The waiter, a young man, was very friendly, all smiles and we got served fast and in a correct manner. We had about 5 or 6 different tapas to share and they were all fresh... More

Great selection of beers here, reasonably priced too. Sat outside and when it got chilly, a member of staff brought a blanket for the wife! Didn't eat here but the food looked great!

Stopped here for a quick drink whilst walking round and then returned later for some nacho's and a few more drinks to while a way an hour before our return train to Barcelona. Was a lovely sunny day with a nice setting and a little sun trap. Also great value and service.

I woke up excited to try this place! It was my b'day weekend only to find The River Cafe disappointing. Lack of service from the staff and menu was rather boring. But good location at the foot of the river and the cathedral at sight. And Springsteen music was a plus

We are a restaurant, with many dishes for coeliacs, cafeteria and pub, all in one, located in the Barri Vell of Girona, just below the beautiful church of Sant Feliu! We offer you a warm family atmosphere, inspired by Bruce Springsteen and the culture of Native Americans, amazing and unique. We have different environments: tables, bar and the famous Chester sofas, and a fantastic terrace, to enjoy the River at any time of the day. Pets are also welcome
