Excelent food, great service, innovative dishes yet classic. Decoration is classic, not overdone. Highly recommended for people who enjoy eating very well and not being overwhelmed.

We read about the hotel and restaurant in a guidebook for Spain. The hotel is very charming. The restaurant is par excellence. Service, style, cuisine all top notch. We enjoyed every bit of our meal as well as the wonderful service of the amazing staff.

When the weather permits it, the restaurant is outdoor (but with ceiling) so you enjoy the fantastic cooking, the excellent quality of all the dishes and the extremely professional service while you breath the pure Empordà air. A cannot miss if you enjoy gourmet experience.
