First, we didn't know if we should enter. El Pedro didn't look that nice from outside. But we were hungry, and - it was really worth! And I had the impression that there were also lots of locals eating
Favorite Dish: We took the "menu del dia".
First, we got some olives, bread and spanish specialties. We had the choice between several starters, main dishes and desserts and we got drinks. For all, we paid 9 Euro. And it was a great meal we got
Beautiful mountain views,this restaurant is in the tiny village of Anyos.Really pretty inside,decorated with soft colours,and a beautiful collection of antique mirrors.We ate a la carte,the menu is a black board which changes regularly different sauces and special dishes made by the chef,service was very relaxed and friendly which made us feel very much at home.We visited at the end of October 08,but after talking to the waitress she told us that from April onwards the chef goes out and picks his own wild mushrooms in the mountains.the food is very varried,alot of classic English dishes,steak and kidney pie,liver bacon and onions,also chinese dishes,indian,thai,italian,irish,french,to find all this in a tiny village in Andorra was quite a revalation,especially as we found most of what we ate in Andorra not very interesting.Quite a little gem dont miss it if you visit Andorra.And there English.
Favorite Dish: My wife had the omelette with Anyos ceps(a type of wild mushroom)I had a mix of homemade samosa`s which were far better than I had eaten in most indian restaurants,my wife said her omelette was delicious,beautifully cooked and well seasoned.We followed with a steak and guinness pie which was gorgeous fresh pastry filled with rich beef and guinness this was served with roast potatoes and three different vegetables again very fresh and well cooked,just a little bit crisp which is how veg. should be,and everything piping hot.My wife chose the thai green chicken curry served with coconut and corriander rice,the waitress asked how hot she would like it and she went for a medium,which was quite spicey,but totally delicious,the sauce was obviously freshly made as you could taste the corriander,coconut and lemon grass in it,I tasted it ,and it was yummy.We both finnished with thr chefs homemade steamed chocolate pudding with hot chocolate sauce,couldnt fault it.All together a very very enjoyable evening,and we will certainly pay a visit every time we return to Andorra.
Cargols a la llauna (Snails on tin) is a speciality of Lleida province. Traditionally, the Snails were collected in the fields after rainy days, although nowadays many come from farms or are imported from somewhere else. The preparation is really simple: the snails are arranged on a tin tray and then baked with a drizzle of olive oil and salt. They are served directly on the tin tray accompanied with the necessary utensils: a pincer to hold the snail and a needle to extract the meat and dip it in one of the sauces provided, particularly allioli and romesco. Not apt for the most squeamish tourists, but I personally find them far tastier than the bigger, overly buttery Burgundian variety.
We didn't stay at the Parador, but we stopped in for lunch. The food was amazing, both in its taste and its presentation. The service was impeccable. Not a single thing was lacking. And then there was the amazing view of the Costa Brava. After lunch, we walked the hotel ground, got some amazing views of the Coast, and watched the seagulls flying in and out of the nearby gulch. If you are in the area, this is a must. The cost was a bit higher, but definately worth it.
Favorite Dish: I don't recall what my main dish was, but I did have an amazing cream pumpkin or squash soup. There really wasn't anything from the appetizers to the deserts that we didn't like.
This is a very good restaurant next door to the Salvador Dali museum. The place is a typical Catalan masia, or old stone house. It is inside a hotel called also Duran. The food is wonderful and very original.
It is not cheap! I was there because a rich man (the owner of caramels Chupa Chups) invited me.
Favorite Dish: Jamon
If you are looking for a great inexpensive meal in the old town of Gerona and don’t want to eat in a tourist invested establishment then try The Restaurant La Llosa
Excellent value Menu del Dias during the day and great al-la carte menu in the evening.
The evenings when we went it only has a short opening time from 21.00 to 22.00 so be aware of that !!
Excellent value Chinese meal, we took the set evening menu, a choice of four courses served with wine + Coffee / Chinese Tea and all for less that 10 Euro per head – The food was excellent, service good, This had to be the bargain meal of the trip !!
As I have already said in my previous accommodation tip, we stayed at Hotel Prats in Ribes de Freser on a Half Pension basis. However even If you are not staying here I would recommend the restaurant !!
Airy and Light, Great Menu, Friendly and efficient staff and very fair prices,
The menu is in Spanish, But, if like us your Spanish isn’t great then Gemma will happily translate it for you :-)
What more could you want
Located in front of the maritime boulevard, besides the beautiful church. It is relatively small and the dishes are of design, that is, square with little food in them. Expensive, but all the good restaurants in the rich tourist resort of Sitges are expensive.
Favorite Dish: seafood
This is one of the best Argentinean restaurant in Mataro, a city of about 100.000 persons at about 30 kilometres north of Barcelona.
The owner is from Buenos Aires Argentina, and he himself cooks the meats and potatoes following the Argentinean way.
They have all the Argentinean specialties, good wines, “dulce de leche” as dessert, beer Quilmes, sweet liquor “Legui” (so loved by the Tango singer Carlos Gardel) etc.
Prices are moderated and the meat is imported from Argentina.
Favorite Dish: meat
They serve excellent Valencia Paellas and live music in the nights. The restaurant has the form of a boat of the Mississippi River. The staffs speak many languages, including Arabic and French.
Favorite Dish: live music
Empuriabrava is the Spanish Venice, a high category tourist resort. This restaurant is close to the beach and the dishes are prepared by an Indian immigrant. They also have the service to take away.
Favorite Dish: see above
The cafe/restaurant at Montserrat provided one of the best meals had on our whole European tour. We had the veggie option of course, which was stuffed peppers & tomato's it was delicious, and to top it off it only came to about 2.50 pounds (3.50 euros) !! I would definately recommend eating here on a trip to Montserrat Monastery.
Favorite Dish: Catalonia boasts some of the finest restaurants in Spain and even in Europe. However, in spite of the aboundance of sophisticated temples of gastronomy, the most popular culinary invention of Catalans is as simple and banal as it is tasty: the pa amb tomàquet. In order to enjoy it one just has to rub a roasted countryside breadloaf with juicy ripe tomato and garlic and season it with extra virgin olive oil and salt. Served with delicious Iberian ham or Catalan sausages and a glass of wine, it might transport a weak soul to heaven.
maybe the only one thing is really catalan that the people hopes find in Catalonia, is the paella. The place where I tasted the beast, was in Poble Nou, in Delta de l'Ebre, south of Catalonia.
Favorite Dish: You can taste also "fideuà"
