“A Great Place for Lunch! And what a Bargain!!”

Bar Restaurante El Canto

Restaurant details
Reviewed November 2, 2014

We were on the road from France to Andorra through Spain, and stopped, as is our wont, for lunch in Bellver de Cerdanya. Bellver is worth a stop on its own merits: a beautiful village in which time seems to have stood still in many ways. Anyway, we normally have lunch there in the Fonda Biayna but, this being a Tuesday, it was closed. What to do? A wander brought us to the corner on which El Canto is situated, a couple of blocks over from the Fonda. It's a very simple bar/restaurant but don't be put off by appearances; march in through the plastic stripy door covering and ask for a table. A great sign: lots of locals in there eating and, when we were handed the 'menu del dia', we weren't surprised! A choice of three starters, three main courses, puds and bread, coffee and a carafe of wine - all for €11.50 a head. To start, I had a a lovely plate of 'tapas' with cold meats, olives and potato salad and he had a delicious dish of fat white beans in a tasty broth. For main course I had fish: beautifully fresh fillets of 'merluza' cooked with lemon and parsley which came with piping hot skinny french fries. He had a casserole of beef; chunky, dense and tasty- when the bread basket came in handy for mopping up every last drop. Puds were simple: a 'flan' (creme caramel) for me and a chocolate covered vanilla ice cream lolly from the fridge for his nibs. Coffee followed, and we were replete! Lovely home-cooked food, served simply and pleasantly by our nice waitress. Oh, and I, as the non-driver that day can vouch for the wine too. We had the red, but I noticed that the locals tended to go for the rose. Note to self: try the rose next time - and there definitely will be a next time!!
