Was looking around Salt for something to eat and found this place through Trip Advisor. It was 20 mins walk from Our accommodation. When arriving we were warmly greeted and seated, the waiter recommended some dishes but we went with our own choices. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. Prices very good too. A great place to dine.

Villanova was recommended to us by the owner of Can Bo de Pau, the B&B in Salt where we were staying. We were a little apprehensive after walking to the restaurant and finding that we were the only customers (we were early by local standards). However, this turned out to be the best meal of our vacation. We ordered what... More

We arrived today in Girona and looked around for a restaurant and came across this one on Trip Advisor which was only 750m from our hotel. What a find!! The place was delightful, the staff / family were delightful and very helpful and the food was extraordinary at half the price we had been paying in Perpignan. We had the... More

Vilanova is not in a tourist area but is definitely worth seeking out. Senor is front of house and his wife is in the kitchen. I had one of the best gaspacho I have ever tasted and the rest of the food was mighty fine too. SenorA came out to discuss the meal at the end and she was charming.... More

With my parents we've been going there for years, and we love it! It's by far one of the best restaurants in Girona/Salt. The service is great and the food is delicious. If you are looking for a nice evening with awesome food... that's definitely the place to go! I highly recommend the tasting menus, they have different food depending... More

The food at this cosy yet elegant restaurant is highly recommended. Everything is professionally presented and extremely tasty. Might I recommend the menu to be written in English too for foreigners. It would help tremendously.

I love this restaurant. Speciality in seasonal products, wide range of local virgin olive oils, great wines... They always recommend you the best options for you, depending on your preferences. I recommend you the gastronomic menu. When you go there, although you only want to eat, you'll always be more than satisfied. They make you feel like home, because the... More

We were staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Express and found this restaurant here on TripAdvisor. Surprisingly, the hotel clerk had never been there. I was a little worried because the only menu on their website was in Catalan, but they have menus in Spanish when you go there. The quality of the food and the preparation are really top-notch...

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very warm and welcoming and the wine selection was very good. I'm glad i had the opportunity to pass by here and try something so authentic. i hope... More

Friendly, local (non-tourist) restaurant - with Jordi happy to explain the menu despite our lack of Spanish. Interesting menu, well-presented and prepared food. The wine trolley was a new experience for me - had a top end wine that was excellent and cost under 12 Euros! Ten minutes walk from our Holiday Inn Express stopover on way to Spain. If... More
