This is one of the old train stations on the now Green Route cycle path. They have recently turned what was the side car park into a great enclosed garden with things for kids to play on which looks lovely. The inside restaurant is nice...More

I am not sure why people have scored this place so high. I went for lunch there on Wednesday, and the food was adequate, but nothing special. One of my party had pork and chorizo which was so fatty that he barley ate any of...More

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch at this restaurant. We ate in the courtyard which was a wonderful setting. The service was very good and the food was excellent. We shared the shoulder of lamb after starters of anchovies and cuttlefish and finished with crema Catalanas. This...More

Situated in a former railway station La Font Picant is a hidden gem that offers delicious authentic spanish cuisine and a service with a smile in a great location. Highly recommended.

We'd been to the Font Picant in its old incarnation, and mostly in the depths of winter when we hugged cosily round the log fire. The food was good but not exceptional in those days, the main attraction being the fact we could eat in...More

There are places that take us back to our childhood: summer evenings, picnics by the spring, your first bike... La Font Picant is one of those places. An antique restaurant in an old railway station, a meeting point for the people of Sant Feliu, Santa Cristina... A beautiful little corner with plenty of heart. With this simplicity of form we offer a selection of meats, grilled or spit-roasted over a wood fire. We use only 100% natural products, cooked on charcoal from les Gavarres, obtained by natural means. We have chosen to pursue a policy of respect for the environment and local sustainability.
