“Good place to stop for lunch”

Description: There are places that take us back to our childhood: summer evenings, picnics by the spring, your first bike... La Font Picant is one of those places. An antique restaurant in an old railway station, a meeting point for the people of Sant Feliu, Santa Cristina... A beautiful little corner with plenty of heart. With this simplicity of form we offer a selection of meats, grilled or spit-roasted over a wood fire. We use only 100% natural products, cooked on charcoal from les Gavarres, obtained by natural means. We have chosen to pursue a policy of respect for the environment and local sustainability.

This restaurant used to be a railway station but as the tracks were pulled up and replaced with the Via Verde cycle route (also known as Ruta del Carrilet) some of the best cycling tracks I've ever ridden on.

It's about 10 km from S' Agaro and we came upon it at just the right time, before the 'rush'. This is a lovely setting and we had the 12 euro three course lunch with wine, before continuing our journey.

The food was excellent and the staff friendly, it was a very relaxing lunch.

The inside garden is lovely and peaceful, the staff is really friendly, they even have a children's menu, what's not to like? We had the grilled fish, it was fresh and delicious. We'll definitely come back to this place!

By accident we passed by the restaurant and had been attratcted by the nice, quiet and offsite location. As we did not want to cook ourselves every day during our holidays here, we decided to make a reservation for dinner. We enjoyed an evening there with attentive, not obtrusive service (offered an apperitive, received a menu in english, ...), great local dishes (starter: snails and mussels, main course: local fish and meat dish, dessert: warm chocolate cake to share). The atmosphere was nice, even though there were three tables with kids, it was quiet, lovely location in the backyard and beautiful surrounding by old converted train station. Also great if you only want to have a small and fast snack as seating in an different area is provided for this purpose as well. Great benefit for good price - we will come back.

Nicely situated in an old railway station with a peaceful garden. Friendly service and live music. Food is ok, a lot of meat, not much choice for vegetarians. Pleasant experience but a bit high priced compared to other places.
