The inside garden is lovely and peaceful, the staff is really friendly, they even have a children's menu, what's not to like? We had the grilled fish, it was fresh and delicious. We'll definitely come back to this place!

Nicely situated in an old railway station with a peaceful garden. Friendly service and live music. Food is ok, a lot of meat, not much choice for vegetarians. Pleasant experience but a bit high priced compared to other places.

This is one of the places I go to eat often. No fuss, excellent basic food, good service, like in your own (Spanish) kitchen. Very good value for money.

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.
