I was visiting a client in Banyoles and decided to look for a place to have lunch. This restaurant is modern and elegant and the lunch menu at 12€ is great value for what you get. A nice goat's cheese salad for a starter and a great "arros a la cassola" (typical catalan rice with seafood and meat) as a... More

We had a dinner. The restaurant was large but very quiet. The menu was ok. The service was efficient. The price was reasonable (20€).

We heard it was a great place. Maybe it used to be, I don't know, my bet is that the chef was on holidays. The paella was really watery, I had better paellas in a 9€ menu restaurants. No taste at all. Disappointing. Salads were good. The fish was dry, it really look re-heated. Deserts were ok and coffee was... More

My first visit in Banyoles was shared between discovering the beautiful lake and this restaurant. I´m very fussy about tastes, flavour experiences...and I have to say that I found the dishes extremely interesting and very tasty. I had the artichoke, although for my personal taste they were too fried, the experience of eating them like french fries convinced me of... More

Last year my wife and I had a great lunch here when we visited Banyoles. We wanted traditional Catalan fayre which was not offered in the majority of the restaurants described by the tourist information we'd been given. This however, was very different. It was only ten minutes walk from the lake and we were immediately hit from the hot... More

This is the second time I have been here- and on both occasions- the food and service were very attentive. The waiting staff are all elderly people- but they are always serving with a smile- and if you speak Catalan- they are extremely happy as the majority of the clients were local people.

Always visit Can Xabanet when in Banyoles. Tucked away, this rebuilt restaurant is a favourite with locals and with visitors. Family run with Jimmy, the waiter, clocking up well over 40 years service there. Can't wait to see their smiling faces again !

Booked a party of 22 for a 50th birthday party. They were very accommodating and gave us 4 starters each, a main (fillet steak) and sweet (Creme Brulee). Some of our party had an alternative from the a la carte menu. They even gave 7 bottles of wine for free but our party drank at least 20 bottles. Quality was... More

Very surprised to see that the daily set menu that all restaurants offer in Spain at lunchtimes was also available in the evening. And it was absolutely delicious, generous portions, even included the wine, which is something not everywhere does any more. Very few people were there, I imagine they are struggling in these difficult times, but perhaps the new... More
