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.

Nice garden area to have drinks or lunch. Prices are a bit high. Been here before and services upgraded since last visit.

Last year (2015) we visited this restaurant twice when being on holiday in Santa Cristina and liked it a lot, so this year we went again and had high expectations. The food was still ok, but very basic for the price you pay. The lamb chops came with simple french fries and a tiny bit of vegetables while before it... More

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 and cool, but they have a great patio garden shaded by parasols and trees out... 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 it. Service was okay, but felt rushed.....They cleared plates as each person finished rather than... 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 restaurant is on the map of cyclists and walkers as it is located on an... More

We first came across this place a few years ago following the Olot-San Feliu railway at the time we regretted having already eaten. We went back the following year at the start of a holiday and had a lovely meal. 3 years on and this place still meets the Mark. The food may not be as cheap as some of... More

Description
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.
