Nine of us arrived here unannounced as we had given up trying to find somewhere in Valls. So we headed toward Montblanc. We swerved across the road and parked up. Unbelievable view. First impressions were that it was going to be expensive but it clearly...More

Passed by the restuarant on a very cold winter night and thought it looks nice and cosy to have our late dinner there. True to my first impression, we order the typical catalan soup (Escudella), delicious and hot to keep us warm. They served us...More
