My husband and I were in Cardona visiting the castle yesterday. We stopped at El Petit Perico for lunch and had two very different experiences. The place is extremely "petit", with only four tables, so we were lucky to snatch the last one. The waitress, who was incredibly warm and friendly, had to turn away several people who came after...

Can be a bit tricky to find, a street back from a major road, but if you are anywhere near Cardona, this is the place to have dinner! Prices are very reasonable, the proprietor speaks little English but is helpful and attentive. Highly recommend the "ham" (actually delicious chunks of pork tenderloin) with mushrooms and applesauce. Dirt cheap at under... More

We were staying at the nearby Parador for the night and decided to head into Cardona for dinner. We found El Petite Perico. The service was great, the food was delicious and the prices were affordable. I had the grilled pork with mushrooms and applesauce, that was the best I've ever tasted. For dessert, I had the pumpkin jam stuffed... More

Planned to eat at the Parador but didn't book ! The starters were all surprisingly large so very pleased that we didn't order too much too early. They were good too. The "secret Catalan grill " was jus amazing and the local wines really enjoyable and great value. Table not really suited to 4 of us dining but with help... More

The fixed menu del vespres (evening) is @16 and the choice sufficient to meet most needs. The food is simple, well cooked and tasty. the decor is more fast food than fine dining, but this is a place to drop in for food in the course of an evening wandering round the town, rather than a special destination.

This restaurant in the town of Cardona is a true little jewel. We had lunch with our family of six at the bar, all of us sitting in a row and admiring the cooking of Teresa, the bar tending of Juan, and the serving by Margarita. Juan and Margarita are married for 38 years, and the three of them (Teresa... More

Stopped here one evening. Quirky little restaurant decor is a bit bland but someone has gone to a lot of trouble designing this place. result is tables too small and seating uncomfortable. However service hospitality and food were superb.great value for money. This restaurant is well worth visitingas is the lovely town of Cardona.
