Took the family to this special place. Didn't book in advance and took a chance. Had the menu of the day that was exquisite. Beautifully prepared. Delicious. Excellent wine. Attentive service (even printed an English menu especially). It is in the most extraordinary location for such a restaurant but seek it out if you can. Very special last meal in... More

Situated in a small village this is an outstanding restaurant . Friendly helpful service in a beautifully appointed stone walled eating area with a huge picture window. It looked like it might be too formal but isn't. The food was quite wonderfully presented and simply delicious. A highlight of our Catalan adventure.

This place is well worth the visit. Every single dish we had was exquisite. Better come with a good appetite, especially if you want to sample the menu. Great to make it part of a day trip and visit nearby lake Banyoles or medieval town Besalu.

You would never think there even could be a restaurant in the small village of Espinavessa. In the typical style of a Catalunya house you find a very pure natural kitchen. Good (local) products, nice plates, gentle service. Price/quality it is more than excellent.
