I can highly recommend this restaurant. We had a lovely time, two adults and two kids. Settings, interior, food and service were all to our satisfaction.

We found this restaurant in a tiny village just below the lake of Boadella. It has a charming location overlooking the River Muga. We chose a fixed price 'menu tradicion' at 23 euros and a half bottle of the house white at 7 euros and it was not just good value; it was a superb meal. Particularly good were a... More

We came for lunch and discovered a pretty nice place. The service is professional, quick, not too much, and very kindly. The menus are presented in 5 languages with icons telling whether dishes contain gluten, eggs, etc. and 90% of the products are produced locally. Very professional. After the aperitif, we enjoyed very much the 25th anniversary menu: 2 starters,... More

We visited with our 2 sons aged 14 and 12 and it was a pleasure to take them to such a good restaurant without fear of the bill. They both said it was the... More

This place is a must to visit. We were there for a romantic birthday dinner and it really was a fantastic experience. We had the gourmet menu with the reserva wine offered. This is the best meal ever for € 40 plus wine I have ever tasted. And the service was as good as the food. Location along the river... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in L'Estartit. I am forever in her debt! We had a wonderful meal here. Restaurant was full (mostly French diners - lots of them drive down from Perpignan) and there was a great atmosphere. Menu was full of local specialities. The morels stuffed with foie gras was possibly the nicest starter... More

We have become regular visitors to this lovely restaurant. With its constantly changing menus using the freshest of local produce, a meal at the Trull is never boring. The cooking is of a very high standard, but not pretentious, and the staff are welcoming and efficient. Over his 25 years of developing this restaurant, Françesc has created a fantastic business...

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.
