We were surprised to stumble upon this very pleasant restaurant on a rainey afternoon while walking around the lake in Banyoles. Very tasty, and very good options for vegetarian dishes. For ince, a place that uses legumes as part of a main dish!

We had lunch reservations here with friends as a group of 10 with adults and children. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The food and drinks were excellent with good portions. The children's menu had plenty to offer for the kids and the service was friendly and efficient. We ordered from the fixed menu with starter, drinks and dessert included with... More

Having read all the reviews on trip advisor we booked an evening meal for our extended family group of 14. We had imagined a regular restaurant meal - we found we had a reservation on the terrace overlooking the lake as night fell and that we were booked in for a fixed price barbecue style menu. For a big group... More

It was not my first time there. Fine food in a privileged environment (in the very front of the Bayoles Estany). This time we had been 7 fellows eating together after a mountain bike ride, so we were really hungry! The service is what I like the most. Simply excellent: young people, funny and well trained. The food is very... More

My husband and I, along with our son, his wife and two small children ate on the restaurant's attractive terrace twice last week. What a lovely view and pleasant restaurant. The food is very good and extremely reasonable. The wait staff is attentive and friendly.

Our company usually brings our clients and distributors to this restaurant for having lunch because you have the chance to see the well-known Banyoles lake while you are eating. The food is great and the daily menú has a lot of options so you can eat whatever you want.

Great food, lots of choices, friendly staff and good wine. Have been eating here for 9 years. When the crisis hit Spain, Vora Estany put up their prices by 20% and since then they every meal I have had there has been great. I always try to take as many people there as possible.
