The restaurant is tiny and we just walked past and saw the little cute terrasse. There is a Tapas menu and a fixed menu del dia. My partner had the Tapas and I had Gazpacho, then fish with vegetables and potatoes and the Crema Catalana. Everything was excellent and tasted really "home-made". The waiter was nice and we would definitely... More

This cute, little restaurant is just round the corner from the cathedral. It is tastefully decorated like a tailor's shop and the food is yummy and fun. The menu consists of different tapas to choose from, all at a very reasonable price, and some dishes to share. A definite must on your stay in Girona.

The owner made this place! Warm and friendly, quaint and cosy. Food was fab but a note for the faint hearted fruits of the sea are baby eels. Set just around the corner from the cathedral, a welcome respite from a walk along the walls. The theme gives it character with irons for lights and old singer sewing machine bases... More

Lovely little bar just off the main track. Great well priced tapas tapas. I can recommend the sardines and the goats cheese dish another couple had looked wonderful. Perfect for an afternoon snack after late breakfast and before dinner Also had our first sangria of the holiday

This cafe was quite the find! After an exciting but exhausting visit to the Girona cathedral, we were looking for a quick lunch and something to drink. 'AroundMe' app threw up this place as one of 3 closest spots to eat and we headed here, and took up a table outside on a little ledge. It's a pretty cottage-like place,... More

Small tapas restaurant hidden away at top of the jewish quarter near the cathedral. Interesting décor based on a sewing theme. Plenty of tapas to choose from, other food as alternative to tapas. Waiter was helpful advising us how many tapas to share between 4 of us and he got it just right. Well worth seeking out.

We were in the old town of Girona and found this little gem of a bar. It's hidden away but only 150m or so from the main thoroughfare. We only had a couple of beers but the service was spot-on and the prices very reasonable. The inside decor is very original and the owner seemed very proud when he showed... More

We were passing by this location and the trip advisor ratings were mostly good so we gave it a try for the fixed menu lunch. I ordered a first course of stuffed mushrooms and a second course of cod with vegetables. My wife ordered gazpacho followed by eggplant stuffed with meat. The mushrooms were watery and tasteless, the cod was... More

It had been a while since I´d eaten at El Didal, so we decided to pay this cosy little delight a visit last night. It was, quite simply, spectacular. Hidden away in the jewish quarter of the old town, It´s a little further out from the centre, which is why i suppose it isn´t as well known as it should... More

We just loved this restaurant. It was so different. The sewing theme was so different. The tapas was absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced . The location of the restaurant was also beautiful. We were so pleased we stumbled upon it.
