Excellent restaurant in the country side not far from Girona. Great menu, excellent food and even better services. It is a real gem in the country with an amazing setting, next to a small river. Excellent value for money too and worth the drive.

A restaurant we visit often, always great quality, great friendly service, lovely surroundings. It's a large menu, a bit complicated but worth the time to go through it all, plus with specials depending on the season.

The restaurant El Trull d'en Francesc prides itself on being located in a truly enviable setting, in the centre of the Alt Emporda, in a village of 125 inhabitants. Its surroundings are wonderful for strolling, cycling or just admiring their beauty. We have a terrace that is open in summer, overlooking the River Muga with its flocks of ducks and geese, and the establishment has a totally rustic decoration, with a fireplace for the winter. The restaurant El Trull d'en Francesc offers essentially Empordanese cooking. All our products are bought fresh locally, as we are only 20 kilometres from the sea and the mountains. With a youthful, friendly staff who will be at your service from the moment you arrive until you leave, we aim to offer warm and careful attention to make your visit as pleasant as possible. You can turn our Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights into the most romantic of your life ... From now on El Trull d'en Francesc makes it easy for you.
